Reviews for Taqueria Morelos

Omg. The tacos that I ordered were horrible. They put pineapple on the carnitas al pastor! If the person that's cooking there wants to be a chef that's not the place. They also, put a type of sauce in the carnitas al pastor which took away the flavor and taste. I also ordered a guacamole dip and it tasted like it came right out of a can. This isn't real Mexican Food will not go there ever again.

I absolutely love this place! The tacos al pastor are my favorite entree. Also, the guacamole is the BEST! It is so fresh and they give you a lot of it. Overall, this place is truly authentic and inexpensive. Their staff is also very kind and helpful and the service is quick.

I'm here in NJ for the weekend and live Los Angeles where we have some of the best Mexican restaurants in the world. Stopped by Taqueria Morelos for lunch and was not disappointed. If you want a home cooked Mexican meal in Newark, this family owned restaurant is a good choice. We had the tacos de al pastor and carne asada plate with rice, beans, and salad. Everything tasted fresh and they make hand made corn tortillas!
