If Taco Tuesday isn’t your favorite day of the week, it’s time to reevaluate. We’ve found some incredible Jersey Shore tacos that you seriously need to try. From tropical island-inspired cuisine to authentic Mexican food, this list has something for everyone.
Blend on Main
If you’re searching for a taco in an environment that’s a bit more upscale than the standard taco joint, Blend on Main is the place for you. The ahi tuna taco is to die for – the sriracha aioli alone is enough to draw us in! 152 Main Street, Manasquan (732) 223-0030
First, choose your meat to fill your three tacos, from a wide variety of chicken, beef, pork, shrimp, or of course the vegetarian options. Then top with salsa, cheese, sour cream, and lettuce. Don’t forget your side of chips and salsa, and you’ll be in taco heaven. And if you go on one of the designated Kid’s Nights, kids eat free!

FINS Tropical Cuisine
FINS serves their tacos with a tropical twist. Go for the East West Fish Taco with Hawaiian BBQ sauce, or the Coconut Sesame Shrimp taco.

Everyone seems to be serving a new take on tacos, but don’t forget where it all began! Plaza Tapatia serves nothing but authentic Mexican food, and it can’t be beat.
