Tonight wanting to stay local we tried Tenampa Mexican Restaurant on Rt 9 in
Toms River...big mistake! Although a nicely decorated place inside the food was less then desirable and anything but authentic Mexican cuisine. We ordered the Combo Chicken Burrito & Taco...the wife the Pork Burrito. Drenched in a red tomato sauce that honestly tasted like Prego in a jar completely obliterating any flavors of the burrito. The Beef Taco sadly enough was placed on top of all the red sauce and when I tried to pick it up it was soaked disintegrated and broke apart all over my plate. I asked for Lime and the had none.... The plain Pork Burrito was tasteless and needed salt & pepper excessively...we asked for a little Salsa Verde to try to create some sort of flavor and that was like water plus they had the nerve to charge an extra $2.00 for a small maybe 2 ounces of it!!..
All I can say is I would never recomend this place and as far as the sign out front touting "AUTHENTIC" Mexican Food, Tenampa is FAR away from that
