Weekend Happenings for Jersey Shore Locals

Cinco de Mayo

This Friday marks Cinco de Mayo!  The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza.  Here in the U.S., Cinco de Mayo has become a day to celebrate Mexican-American culture.  Here’s just a few local spots where you can have your celebration!  Let us know your favorite spot for great food and fun!

10th Avenue Burrito, Belmar

What once was a small restaurant has turned into a place that still serves the same delicious cuisine with all the same flair, but this time with alcohol and lots of tequila. Take on the all you can eat buffet for just $20 on Cinco de Mayo while you listen to XOL Azul’s authentic Spanish music and maybe win some prizes. It’s a fiesta that’s worth waiting for!

La Tapatia, Asbury Park

What was once a little known secret has quickly become one of the best-known restaurants in Asbury Park. La Tapatia is the place to chow down on your favorite Mexican dishes from burritos to enchiladas. Classic cuisine in a classic abode. And here’s a little known secret – they have a liquor license!

Jose’s Mexican Restaurant, Spring Lake Heights

What Jose’s Mexican Restaurant lacks in décor, they make up in the quality of their food. Walk in on any night of the week and you’ll find locals happily eating home cooked Mexican cuisine that keeps people coming back again and again.
