Chipotle lovers brace yourself for an amped up burrito joint because Tacoria is like Chipotle on steroids. Located at 56A Easton Ave, Tacoria has a variety of Mexican food such as tacos, burritos, and burrito boxes. My favorite aspect is the burritos, which are grilled on both sides to create warm, gooey insides. This separates Tacoria from being just another Chipotle-esque chain. To make it even better, Tacoria also offers guacamole for an additional $1.50 (compared to Chipotle’s $1.80). It might not be a huge amount, but when you’re eating on a budget any deal helps.

Another one of my favorite things about Tacoria is the atmosphere. You walk in to an open store front which makes the place feel very welcoming. Seating options are limited inside, but if you continue to the back exit you will find yourself in an enchanted courtyard. It’s a great spot for a quiet dinner in the middle of busy New Brunswick, and it made me almost forget I was in a city. Here’s a photo from one of my visits there.
