A word from Charrito's - Weehawken
In the early eighties, Filiberto and Genoveva Arias came to America with a dream. Arriving from Putla, Oaxaca, Filiberto obtained a position in a local restaurant and Genoveva worked as a seamstress in a nearby factory. To make ends meet, Filiberto would cook “crispies” and sell them to the factory workers at lunchtime. From these humble beginnings, Charrito’s Restaurant was established on July 19, 1992, in Union City, New Jersey, offering a cuisine that is primarily inspired by many traditional favorites from Oaxaca. Charrito’s also offers a wide variety of rich plates native to Mexico’s adjoining 31 states. Although, its menu and its appearance has often changed in the past decade, the quality of Charrito’s cuisine and our dedication to providing an authentic Mexican dining experience remains the same.Continued

- Good food in past BUT FrustratingDebGVIPDined on 8/4/2014My husband and I had a late night working and were tired and hungry with nothing in the house....we've been before and and liked it.. we also live nearby so when we saw they had a reservation on Open Table we booked it. It was a nice night and even though we were tired from working late and hungry we decided to walk there ... Not too far from our house but still a decent walk.... BUT we get all the way there and it is closed!!!!! Closed so they could go to beach as the sign on door said.... So, hungry and tired we had to walk all,the way home again get car and go somewhere else!!! Hope they had a nice day at beach while I wasted a good part of my evening going there for no reason.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/4/2014I had resrvations for 5 and upon our arrival the place had a "kitchy note" saying that they were closed because they were at the beach. All 5 of us travelled from out of town to get to this location(including one all the way from Miami) only to be met with this note! It would have been appreciated if someone contacted us to inform us of this. It was a very embarrasing moment for me as I had been the one to select the location.
- Une vue magnifique sur ManhattanSwissMenDined on 8/3/2014Dans une ambiance tout à fait agréable, et loin du bruit de la ville, comment mieux profiter de la vue. Je recommande la Margarita! Et penser à réserver la terrasse, cela vaut vraiment la peine.Special Features:
- fresh guacamoleAhfoodVIPDined on 7/16/2014Spent an afternoon at Charrito's having lunch with a friend. The freshly made guacamole was perfectly mixed. The view of the manhattan skyline was relaxing and reminded me a leisurely vacation afternoon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- ExpensiveTricia01Dined on 6/7/2014Excellent views over the river, guacamole made at table which was a nice touch. Food was okay, but $82 for brunch for two with one cocktail and one beer each was a bit steep. Will not go again.Special Features:

- Good food, amazing viewNJfoodieDined on 4/12/2014The food is very good, I recommend the pollo en rajas and beef fajitas.

- Disappointed!patnjDined on 4/1/2014I have eaten several times at this restaurant and enjoyed the food, the ambiance and the view. A good local restaurant to take visitors to. However on this past occasion the food was very disappointing - I had a dish I have eaten there before - chilaquilles - and this time the sauce was thin and in too great a quantity. Flavour was lacking and there was not much chicken. As I was entertaining a visitor from UK, I was very disappointed. Perhaps it was the chef's day off?Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Had a great night!anonymousDined on 3/23/2014This restaurant is absolutely great. I arrived before my reserved time but they accommodated me right away, and gave me an available table. I was very happy! The food was excellent, and the service was exceptional. I recommended this restaurant to all my friends. It is perfect for group of friends or a romantic date.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- mexican in stylelatino123Dined on 11/1/2013Charritos is a Mexican restaurant which offers authentic mexican cuisine. It also offers great atmosphere and scenic views of NYCSpecial Features:
- Once was enough.ErinDined on 11/1/2013Sat in front of valet for five minutes until I got out of the car when the valet took a car that pulled up behind us only to be told the lot was full. Restaurant was crowded/packed way too tight with tables, chairs were uncomfortable, tables were too small to fit everything, and it was too loud to have a conversation on what was supposed to be date night. The food was just okay. The only good things were the view and the service.
- decoration vs foodmp13Dined on 10/26/2013decoration of this place it is amazing. I love it. food, brunch,was not that good and didn't have menu for kidsSpecial Features:
- Great ViewBIGeaterDined on 10/1/2013The view of NY skyline is great, even on the hazy day i was there. I went for lunch around 2pm, it was quiet, most diners were outside eating and enjoying the scenery. But the restaurant has large windows so tables throughout the restaurant can enjoy the view. The freshly made-at-the-table guacamole is delicious and they ask how you would like it made...mild, medium or hot...that was a nice request. I had the shrimp with rice and salad, it was all very good. My husband has the mini make-your-own soft tacos...that was very good. Overall no complaints. Great Mexican inspired decor...love the brilliant colors and all the Day of The Dead Skeletons...and the intricate woodwork. A very very nice restaurant. Definitely would go back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- WonderfulDanaDined on 9/12/2013Guacamole made at your table the way you like it. Service is fast but they don't rush you. Strong drinks jalepeño cucumber margarita. Yum. Amazing view of Manhattan.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Perfect view to the ManhattanSib22Dined on 9/2/2013Perfect view to the Manhattan Skyline. I have had guests from Europe and they were amazed by the food and the view.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Just okThefaceDined on 8/31/2013The dining experience was ok. My drink order, my dinner order and second round of drinks were taken by 3 different servers. So I didn't know who my main server was. At the end, the server who took my payment swiped by debit card an additional 140 dollars without telling me he made the mistake. I guess you get for what you pay for here.Special Features:
- LoveOpenTable Diner Since 2006Dined on 8/30/2013I love this place. Everytime someone comes from out of town I take them here. Amazing food, amazing view... this place rocks.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food, great viewOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 8/24/2013Perfect place for our anniversary dinner. They sat us outside at a table for two across the river from mid-town Manhattan. We had a great view and a very good atmosphere for our 11 anniversary. The food was great, the menu had lots of choices. I would definetly go back again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Only downside...OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 8/23/2013The guac was supposed to be medium but ended up so hot that we had to constantly ask for water to subdue to heat. Can't beat the views of the city though.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- I would never go back to Charrito'snyc1020VIPDined on 7/25/2013The view of NYC from Charrito's in Weehawken is beautiful (if you can get a table close to the window) and the food is above average for Mexican food in this area. The service was less than satisfactory (e.g. we had to ask for forks 3 times). However, the noise level is very loud, making it hard to hear people sitting beside you, let alone across the table from you. I would never go back to Charrito's. There are many other restaurant choices that provide a much better dining experience.
- Awesome view of manhattan skyline!PickyDined on 6/20/2013Food was fantastic. All margueritas excellent but be sure to try the passion fruit!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
