Fresh Tortillas Grill

2/20/2009 Update/Inquiry:

Worth trying? Even in a bind?

Fresh Tortillas Grill is one of the only Hoboken restaurants that I have yet to try in the more than a decade living here.

However, the reason this post is being bumped today, is because they’ve apparently went on an “Ad Blitz” and stuffed their menus in probably every mailbox in town. Brilliant, really – because since the last comment about this joint was in 2007, I decided to scan their menu and ask the readers:

  • Is the place any good?
  • What dish is their specialty?
  • The prices seem reasonable – are the portion sizes OK?
  • How was your digestive tract after eating there?

    No one has mentioned Mission Burrito on 4th. Still the best mexican in Hoboken. Why anyone would go to a place like Qboda or Fresh Tortilla Grill is beyond me. Also I haven’t been to Baja in a long time.

    Go to Google and type in ;

    QUICK BITE/Hoboken; Overstuffed Burritos, Not Flavored Margaritas

    Fresh Tortilla Grill is fine if you’re after a simple quesedilla or taco. Try the monterey jack and chicken quesadilla or a steak taco with guacamole. And I love the irony of Hoboken white suburban filth being upset at not finding a Mexican in a restaurant.

    Em, I mentioned Mission Burrito– it’s good but I can’t finish a burrito by myself. And Baja was disappointing…

    If you’ve had authentic Mexican, you may come to realize that almost everything in this town just doesn’t compare to it. I go to Qdoba every few months, though, as a matter of personal preference– I enjoy the lighter taste of the food, and Mexican food shouldn’t be so heavy on the system.

    I do like Charrito’s guacamole, too. Tastes similar to the one I make at home.

    Hands down fastest delivery place in Hoboken. 15 minutes, sometimes 20 minutes. Aroma comes a close 2nd in speed.

    The food: very average.

    The only thing I order from them now is the taco local because its the only Mexican place in Hoboken I know that has puts the hard shell and soft shell together. Even so it is quite greasy.

    If you want three tacos delivered to your place in 20 minutes this is the place. Outside of that don’t ask for much more you’ll be disappointed.

    I ate here once 8 years ago. It was nasty, hence why I haven’t eaten there again in 8 years.

    It tasted like Chinese Mexican food.

    I had virtually the same experience. A styrofoam tray with 2 or 3 kinds of glop in it; reminded me of the high school cafeteria.
