If you’re a Jersey City foodie, chances are that you’ve been to street-taco hotspot, Taqueria, once or twice. Owners Andrea and Phil Barraza have opened a more spacious and elegant outpost of the well-loved taco joint called Los Cuernos, which translates into “the horns.”
Los Cuernos offers both an elevated take on Taqueria’s most popular dishes, and incorporates new ones in this 5,600 square-foot location on Washington Boulevard. Stop by for delicious Mexican beer on tap and some appetizers, or expertly crafted cocktails and entrees.
