There's nothing quite like freshly made Mexican Food.

At least once a week or so, I "accidentally" forget my lunch so I can sneak over to Taco-Tastic in Toms River and get a California bowl.

A rice bowl piled high with guacamole, cheese, chicken, and beans.

It's arguably one of the best things I've ever eaten, and if you're a fan of Mexican Food I'd highly recommend giving it a try.

Of course, there are a ton of great places around Jersey to grab Mexican food; Montes Cafe on the Seaside Heights boardwalk is supposed to be great, I've heard it described as tasting like Chipotle, but better.

El Ranchero in Toms River is also a really good spot to go when you get the craving for some real authentic Mexican cuisine.
