The first and original Charritos is on Bergenline in Union City. Better and as cheap as the one that was located on Central (though I miss it). It's an Immi-bus ride away. Thanks for the heads up on the Dive.

Charritos
4900 Bergenline Ave.
Union City, NJ 07087
(201) 863-0345

Real Mexican families eat here, that can't be a bad thing.

Sounds like another Tommy's...?

I second the post above: Cinco de Mayo (also on Central) has really good food. Better than Charrito's, I think, even if they're not wearing cutesy folk costumes and making the guacamole tableside with a big stone mortar and pestle. (I can do without all that.)

There are two Charrito's locations in Hoboken. Why not go there? Although I think the prices are a little more expensive. We went to the ones in Hoboken before they opened in the Heights.

With that kind of knowledge why even step foot into the place at all. I lived here all my life and knew enough that it was a dive to begin with.

Which diner in the area of Bowery/LES are you referring to?
