Lunch at Taqueria Los Gueros in East Rutherford, NJ
Dan and I happened to be on Route 17 and were going to stop by Panera for lunch, when we noticed an unfamiliar looking taco place labeled as "authentic." Inside was a pretty vast menu - tacos, tortas, fajitas, quesadillas, salads, bowls, etc. And many different types of protein available - steak, pastor, carnitas, chicken, shrimp, fish, chorizo, and possibly more I can't remember. Dan and I both ordered Mexican tacos - four tacos (2 meat options) with pico de gallo and avocado on corn tortillas. Somehow they messed up my order and gave me American tacos - 3 flour tortillas w/cheese and avocado. Mine was actually still excellent as I prefer flour to corn tortillas, but the latter is the only gluten-free friendly one. The meat was really good - between our two types we deduced pastor and chorizo were the best. Definitely planning to come back. Super cheap (like chipotle pricing) but many more options. They also had a seriously spicy salsa buffet. Too much for me but Dan loved it. Also they had actual Mexican people working there. All good signs.
