Is it going to be a combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell?

I love Taco Bell. And I love real Mexican food. Sometimes I have Dominos and sometimes Rustique. Where can I submit myself to the authorities?

I was told by some Indian college friends that many Indian-Americans enjoy Taco Bell because they feel the spicing is similar. Not in my experience...but hey. Would explain a JSQ location.

Gross, I don't like most of the people dtjc but I still like a few of the spots down there.


Wow, you've met most of the people in Downtown JC? There are about 50,000 residents, so to qualify as "most", you'd have to have met 51% or more. That's a lot of people to have met! I've probably only met a couple hundred of Downtown JC residents in my 8 years here.

I am between Danforth and Bayside and that seems to be the theme lately, Mexicans making pizza and Asians making Mexican food. Ha! the American dream.

Fresh Tortilla Grill. I wasn't a fan either. But Future is great!


Yes, that is it!!! It was a super lard fest. I once ate there and got violently ill.

I don?t think there was a TB up there. But yes there was a KFC and Wendy?s up the square but they were lost with the promise of The Towers. As we all know the lot still sits empty in the middle of JSquare. Maybe after the towers over by PATH get started someone will jumpstart a project on the old ?Towers? lot. That Chinese/Mexican place must be the Daily Tortillas in the below piece.

The 'new' Journal Square takes another step forward

City says two properties to be seized through eminent domain

Wednesday, October 18, 2006
By KEN THORBOURNE JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

Within 30 days, two buildings standing in the way of a two-tower development in the heart of Journal Square in Jersey City will be seized by the city through eminent domain and transferred to the developer, a city official said yesterday.

The acquisition of the third and final building is delayed because the property owner needs time to hire a lawyer, said Robert Antonicello, executive director of the Jersey City Redevelopment Agency.

The two buildings in the process of being condemned are 12 and 14 Journal Square, respectively the sites of a former Wendy's and a current Kentucky Fried Chicken.

The third building slated to be taken, 15-16 Journal Square, houses four businesses - a McDonald's, Song's Hallmark, HT Wireless and a dentist's office.

"We're losing customers because they're not sure if we're going to be around," said Mohamad Abushaar, the manager of HT Wireless. "It (relocation and redevelopment plans) has everybody so mixed up, so confused."

Collectively, the buildings represent the only properties on the block next to the Journal Square Transportation Center not already sold to or under contract to be sold to Harwood Properties, the Jersey City firm designated to build two mixed-use towers on the site.

"We have filed with the court to pursue the condemnation," Antonicello said yesterday. "The money (to purchase the building) has been posted in the courts. The agency would buy them and then convey them to the Harwoods."

The purchase prices are based on appraisals the agency had conducted. According to those assessments 12 Journal Square is worth $1.5 million, 14 Journal Square $1.2 million, and 15-16 Journal Square $2.5 million.

According to the development agreement Harwood Properties inked with the city in May, the company is on the hook to reimburse the city whatever money it shells out to buy the buildings.

The building owners, who couldn't be reached yesterday to comment, are free to contest these building appraisals in court, but that won't hold up the condemnations, Antonicello explained. The court cases can proceed even as the buildings are being demolished, he said.

Harwood Properties is under contract to buy the other properties still standing on that block before the year is out - 1-7 Journal Square, Antonicello said.

The two businesses still in operation there - Three Brothers Pizza and Daily Tortillas - either will have to be evicted by the current owner, New York investor Ralph Tawil Jr., or the future owner, Harwood Properties, officials said.

There used to be a Chinese/Mexican place next to the old 3 Guys From Italy place. Why do the 3 guys from Italy look like Mexicans?

Real mexican food is my favorite food of all. Got an addiction to it when I lived a few feet from the Mexican border in Arizona...

Having said that, I also have an addiction to Taco Bell! Woohoo! Make a run for the border!

Anyone out here ever have Del Taco? I don't think it exists on the east coast, but boy was that yummy also!

Well JSquare already has a combo the Baskin Donuts combo.

You DT people think you are hot stuff with your $5 a slice Two Boots (NYC) Pizzeria. We can do you one up. We have the Three Guys from Italy Pizzeria. And guess what it was written up in the Village Voice! (ok so maybe the Stinky Foods tag is a little unflattening at first glace..but read on)

Forget the dual combos! You could hope for the unholy trifecta of the KenTacoHut.

I'm an actual hccc student and I can testify that several of us frequent this place. They make a hell of a chorizo burrito and prices are CHEAP.

I guess you're right. It shines like a jewel in the JS night. (Who's that guy?)

PS ? I think I would much rather have a $1.79 chicken taco from Taco Bell then an $11.00 Pollo Taco from Orale Mexican Kitchen. If I want to see graffiti on the walls while eating my taco I can just pick one up at TB and walk down Tonnele Avenue. (where the graffiti comes free of charge) lol


Oh yeah I forgot there is a large group of us JScare property owners would are collecting signatures in hopes of someone someday opening an Applebee?s or Houlihan's. (you can keep your Whole Food petitions)
