Born and raised in Marlboro, NJ this restaurant was new to me. With that said and it being #TacoTuesday I decided to give Bubbakoo's Burritos in Freehold a try. "The roots of Bubbakoo's are in the skater and shore scene, but all are welcome in what's quickly become a neighborhood hub of activity" thanks to Paul and Bill. They first opened their doors in 2008 in Point Pleasant, NJ and have since added 7 locations proudly building bridges with local communities where people work, eat, and gather as a family!
The atmosphere was really inviting and if I was with a larger group I wouldn't have a problem because of the long tables they provide. You can also sit a a small bar on one side of the counter. When you share a photo of your team on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook you show them at the counter and you receive a $1 coupon. They also have a punch card which I think is great.
Arriving later in the afternoon after the lunch hour rush I was one of the few people who ordered and stayed to enjoy my meal. I struck up a conversation with the young gentlemen who was helping me as it was my first time. He recommended so many wonderful dishes that I will be back to try. I really to enjoy build your owns and therefore decided on two chicken soft tacos with lettuce, shredded cheese and guacamole. On the side I had salsa for the chips that were included in my meal.

My tacos were delicious and the chips had just the right amount of salt and there were just a few not an overwhelming amount. The mission of Bubbakoo's is "provide fresh, high-quality food - an outstanding service - in a fun and friendly environment" which I believe they nailed on the head.
I didn't save room for dessert but next time I will make sure to. Do you see what's on the menu? Chips with Caramel or Choco Taco would be my top two choices. Which would you try?
I would totally recommend them to locals in NJ as well as guests from out of town. The atmosphere and the food hit the spot. What is your favorite taco?
