When I first moved to Ocean County 10 years ago this summer, a good friend of mine brought me to a new restaurant that had just opened on Bridge Avenue in Point Pleasant.

Since that first meal at Bubbakoo's Burritos, I've been a fan. In the time since then, they've also expanded at a rapid pace and are poised to open another new location in the coming weeks.

After a fantastic reception in Point Pleasant, Bubbakoo's has since opened 11 restaurants from West Long Branch to Bayville, and out to Jackson as well.

This spring they'll make it a cool dozen, with a new spot right on Route 9 in Howell.

Here's their official announcement:

It's awesome to see a local business that not only has great food, but also great people enjoying such growth and success. Congrats, Bubbakoo's!
