North Jersey Mexican

Drew | Jun 24, 200404:53 PM

I was wondering where posters go for good Mex in the North Jersey area. I went to the small (7 tables) place in Bogota and it wasn't bad. Probably not worth the half-hour drive, but an 'in the area' type place. I've been to the place in Fair Lawn which I think is o.k. but definitely nothing special. My favorite by far is not actually in NJ at all, but is in Suffern N.Y. I believe La Hacienda is the name and it is super. My party is usually the only non-mexican group in the place. Good Guac., especially with the pico. They go out of their way to honor any special requests. Good Mex. beers too. Bogota doesn't have a license. Now when I say North Jersey, I mean NORTH. I don't count Montclair as being North. Has any one been to Chilli Willies (Sp?) in Boonton. Heard good things but haven't gotten there yet. Mexicali Blues has gone downhill in Teaneck, Blue Moon in Wyckoff isn't really authentic. I've heard bad things about Tres Chicas in Wyckoff. Any other candidates?
