Let's talk tacos!

I don't know about you, but tacos are one of my favorite foods of all time.

There's just so much you can do with them that makes them such a fun and versatile meal, or even a quick snack.

Around Ocean County, there are a ton of places that I like to go to grab tacos from time to time.

There's a Tacotastic right down the street from the station, which is dangerous because I'll "forget" to pack lunch once or twice a week so I can swing in.

I'm yet to try Beach Tacos but I've heard they're really good as well.

Another really popular spot is El Ranchero off Hooper.

What's really exciting in my eyes, is when a local restaurant expands around the Jersey Shore, especially when they specialize in authentic Mexican food.

The restaurant currently has one location in Belmar, and it specializes in authentic Tijuana-style food.

Owner Edwin Vazquez said that he wants to create the In-and-Out of the Mexican food world, and I'm all here for it.

Currently, Vazquez has one location in Belmar and is getting ready to open a second location in Asbury Park sometime around May.

In addition, he's also looking to expand his restaurant to two more New Jersey locations!

One spot he's scouting out is East Brunswick, and another one is right here in Ocean County in Brick!

According to PatchLos Barbaros Birria is planning on having four locations around the Jersey Shore, and New Jersey.
