I love Tacoholics. They started as a food truck, set up their first permanent location in Brick, and have since expanded to more spots around the shore in Point Pleasant, Manasquan, and Red Bank. They're a solid option in that range of Mexican restaurants that includes places like Surf Taco, Fins, and Bubbakoo's Burritos (and honestly, I love all those places too).

Tacoholics likes to take care of the community too, offering student specials and discounts for Military members and First Responders at all of their locations.

Tacoholics will open their fifth location at The Shoppes At Hooper in Toms River. I was there with the Hawk for a "sneak-preview" of The Shoppes before all the stores officially opened, and it's a really cool plaza. They already have Bada Bean Cawfee, Super Buy Rite Liquors, Vape DRx, Classic Cuts Barber Shop, and Salon Milan. Soon, you'll be able to get some delicious tacos along with your haircut and booze.

An opening date hasn't been mentioned yet, and we'll let you know when we get more information. Since I've moved to Barnegat, I have been waiting for more of my fave local restaurants to expand a bit further south, so I'm excited to be able to have a Tacoholics location not too far from the Hawk's Nest here in Toms River.
