Grab one of the 12 seats or 3 stools in this tiny Clifton spot and enjoy some of Northern New Jersey’s best tacos, huaraches, sopes and other Mexican street food staples. The soft corn tortillas are homemade and delicious. The taco fillings (chicken, pork, tongue, chorizo, beef, tripe) are grilled just right and served with onions, radishes, jalapenos, and even pineapple.
Quesadillas de huitlacoche (corn smut) are surprisingly light, made with large homemade corn tortillas, queso fresco, sliced jalapenos, corn with huitlacoche, and a drizzle of sour cream. Tacos Matamoros also serves breakfast, tortas and main dishes.
Everything’s cheap, the service is straightforward, and Spanish will come in handy.
