Celebrate Cinco de Mayo With Takeout From These South Orange Mexican Eateries


We may not be able to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at our favorite South Orange Mexican eateries this year, but that certainly doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate! Thankfully, lots of local Mexican restaurants are currently hard at work cooking up authentic dishes available for takeout.

If you want to celebrate this fun holiday in your Gaslight Commons apartment with some delicious enchiladas, quesadillas, tacos and burritos, give these local Mexican eateries a call. Some of them are also offering delivery, so you never have to get off your Gaslight Commons couch!

Toro Loco, located at 23 Valley St, South Orange which is a six minute walk from your Gaslight Commons apartment, is a restaurant serving up Mexican meals and margaritas in casual, festive quarters with an outdoor patio.

To continue to serve the public in this time, Toro Loco has streamlined their menu and is offering takeout through their website. Plus, every weekend you can still enjoy your favorite rotating dinner specials through takeout as well, such as their fajita special or Mexican chicken wings.

Benji’s Taqueria Mexican Grill, located at 14 Main St #5301, West Orange which is nine minutes from your Gaslight Commons apartment, is a no-frills Mexican spot doling out tacos, fajitas and other traditional plates for takeout and delivery.

This eatery has been a popular spot in the area for years, and for good reason – their Mexican eats are both delicious and authentic and always served with the customer’s best interest in mind.
