Great Latin American eats (Mexican, Peruvian, Ecuadorian, etc) in Elizabeth?

I know that Elizabeth has a huge and diverse immigrant population representing a number of different Latin American countries. And as a result, the city boasts a ton of mom-and-pop Latin eateries.

But which ones are especially chow worthy? I'm especially interested in Mexican, Peruvian, Ecuadorian, and Salvadoran recommendations, but I'm open to the cuisine of any Latin American country or region.

Sit-down restaurants, hole-in-the-wall take-out spots, sandwich/snack cafes, bakeries, juices and shakes, and anything else are fine with me. Decor, atmosphere, clientele, and price are not important; the only thing that matters is legitimately great food and drink.

Just looking to get pointed in the right direction, as the selection in Elizabeth is overwhelming, yet there hasn't been much online chatter about the food options in this town.
