Recently, did the "best" Mexican restaurants in New Jersey. One of the restaurants that made the list, I was just there in Manahawkin. The restaurant is called El Tepeyac, and it was the cutest place.

The atmosphere was colorful and friendly, like most Mexican restaurants. I had their chalupas and taco and it was delicious. This restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Mexican food is delicious at dinnertime but an authentic Mexican breakfast is amazing.

When I think of Mexican, I think of Margaritas, tacos, enchiladas, and of course the amazing quesadillas (my favorite).

Most of these 10 Mexican restaurants in Ocean and Monmouth County have authentic Mexican with their flare of specials mixed in there. Every Mexican restaurant I've ever been to has something special on its menu that will have you coming back for more.
