Mexican food is wildly popular in Jersey, especially in Ocean County.

We've got so many great places to grab some real Mexican food like Montes Cafe in Seaside Heights, Guadalupana in Toms River, and Rosalita's Roadside Cantina in Brick.

And that's barely scratching the surface, to be honest, I'm sure there are tons of places I'm missing.

That being said, one place has to stand out above the rest, doesn't it?

At least the Jersey experts at Only In Your State think so, and they've scoured our state far and wide to find the absolute best Tex-Mex restaurant in the Garden State.

What Tex-Mex Restaurant Is Being Called The Best In New Jersey?

Full disclosure, this place is a little bit of a hike if you're leaving from Ocean County.

It has three locations, one in Mount Laurel, another in Fairfield, and the third one is in Islen so they're all about an hour away but well worth the drive.

This place is known for its massive bigger-than-your-head margaritas, fresh chips and salsa, and of course enchiladas and burritos the size of your arm.

Only In Your State says that the small chain Jose Tejas is where you have to go to get Jersey's best Tex-Mex restaurants.

They've also got huge empanadas and pretty tasty grilled options like a fiesta chicken with rice.

So go out, grab a marg, and have some tacos!
