10th Ave. Burrito Co. ~ Belmar

3 posts in this topic

This eclectic Jersey Shore Cal/Mex establishment was recently Featured on the Food Network series.

Did dinner there last week. Was a great meal! Started by getting orders of guacamole and cheese with roasted jalapeno to go with the chips and salsa already provided (note: the "hot" salsa served here is actually quite hot; I like it!). Bottles of Cholula hot sauce adorn each table.

The overall style seems to be Cal/Mex, but there is enough variation to set it apart from any particular genre. I guess you could call it Jersey Shore/Mex... Along with south of the border specialties there are a couple additions like the wings and beer battered onion rings, both done really well. The wings are available in either housemade adobo sauce (see video above) or a chipotle barbecue sauce. They were both very good and there was some disagreement at the table as to which was the overall favorite. The onion rings were large and plentiful and the beer flavor was evident.

Most of us opted for Tacos, including the pork mole, steak, choriso and tilapia. Since the last time I had visited in the Summer they have now opted to offer corn tortillas as well as flour (What? Chef/Owner Brian will take Guy Fieri's advice but not mine? What's with that?) :-)

One of our group also ordered the Chicken in Adobo Cream Sauce, which was a huge portion! The strips of chicken were served over rice with cheese and a creamy sauce with a great flavor that we ultimately found included cloves and cinnamon, as well as many other seasonings. We also ordered a serving of Spicy Mac-n-Cheese Pasta tossed with Chorizo and spicy mac sauce, nice kick and very filling.

The place was not very busy when we arrived at 6pm, but gradually filled up. Even the owner of Jersey Shore BBQ a couple doors down stopped by for a visit. The service was excellent and attentive, and Brian the owner moved about the room greeting and chatting with the patrons.

All in all a great time was had by all! The portions were generous and there was an obvious pride in the operation. The bill came to $30 a person, which included leftovers for another day. A nice addition to the shore scene...

10th Ave Burrito recently moved to a new location on the righthand side of the same shopping center (formerly occupied by Viva's). It is a much larger venue and now has a liquor license.
