Good restaurant alert!!!

Maria's Authentic Mexican Restaurant
194 Buckelew Ave.
Jamesburg, NJ 08831
(866) 417-5987

This place is a real find. They haven't been open very long, and I expect it to become rather popular, despite it's proximity to retirement-village-land. The menu has lots of seafood and oaxacan dishes, along with a little tex-mex/americanized fare. However, the vast majority of the menu seems to be very authentic. There was a large specials board that featured items such as stuffed lobster, seafood soups, and other interesting items.

We've only been there once, but can't wait to go back. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to linger, so we couldn't try very much, but what we had was really excellent. Their carnitas are really great (I tried the Carnitas Tacos, but they're also available on Sopes and Huraches). Pozole was very nice on a cold day.

Give it a try.
