This 22-seat outpost of a New Jersey tortilleria dishes out hearty tortas, burritos and quesadillas. Fillings include chicken, steak and marinated pork, but the real draw is the Barbacoa taco special, served up on Saturdays and Sundays. For the dish, goat is slow-cooked in huge copper pots, then heaped generously onto supremely fresh tortillas. The gratis-condiment station offers vats of lively salsas and other toppings. Wash down the spicy grub with the house-made agua frescas in flavors like watermelon, pineapple and cantaloupe.
