Restaurant Notes

Updated on August 6, 2013

Tenth Avenue Burrito

I re-visted the Tenth Avenue Burrito Restaurant in Belmar, NJ on Wednseday evening August 1, 2013. The restaurant now has a bar and an extended dinning area. Tenth Avenue Burrito offers a large variety of beer on tap and in bottles. The menu has added more items, including a grilled shrimp platter. Even on a warm, rainy evening there is a waiting period for customers of about twenty minutes.
The restaurant was originally very small and located on 10th Avenue in Belmar. Guy Fieri of Food Network’s, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives gives a recommendation for the restaurant on his nationally televised program. The restaurant has since moved to larger digs. The new location is on 8th Avenue at the northwest corner of the Belmar Mall. Fieri’s program shows the owner of Tenth Avenue Burrito taking great care in his preparation of food.

Tenth Avenue Burrito specializes in Mexicali style Mexican cuisine. The food is freshly prepared, the portions are large and the price is right. The menu has many dinner selections. My group started with fried tortilla chips and guacamole dip. The chips and guacamole dip were very fresh and flavorful. We also had chicken wings. The wings were properly cooked and lightly spiced. The eatery has both mild and hot sauce for those patrons who like their food hot.

For the main course, I had a specialty of the house, a shredded beef burrito. The burrito consists of a grand portion of beef, rice, black beans and cheese surrounded by a tortilla. My brother in law ordered a Mako shark dinner with potatoes. My sister had a vegetarian dinner of beans, rice and salad. My nephew had pork mole which was absolutely delicious. For desert I had bread pudding and coffee. The bread pudding is good but my nephew ordered the best desert in the house which is the chocolate flan. The total bill came to $85 for four adults.

Some more notes about the restaurant. It is summertime at the Jersey Shore, the dress code is casual but you have to wear shoes, sandals or sneakers within the restaurant. We arrived at Tenth Avenue Burrito at 6:15 PM on a warm, rainy, Wednesday evening. The restaurant was pleasantly cool. The customers were both young and old and all ages in between. We were able to get a table. But when we left at 7:30 PM there was a crowd of about a dozen patrons waiting for tables and takeout food. The restaurant can seat many customers. Tenth Avenue Burrito has at least twenty large rustic tables inside and many larger tables within the outside veranda. On a summer weekend the eatery is very crowded.

The waitresses and waiters give fast (but not too quick) service. What makes the restaurant really intriguing are the décor and the waitresses. The décor is different. There are off beat wall paintings and posters of people, teddy bears and other very colorful artwork. The waitresses have beautiful tattoos and are friendly. A final note, everyone at the restaurant enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. It is the kind of place that Jesus and Pancho Villa can have lunch together.
