About

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.

Everything was great except for service. We waited over an hour for our food, with 3 kids. They tried to clean the glasses off the table when I really needed water since there was nothing to eat for so long. I have to say this terrible service really ruined my birthday.

I dined there with my family for Father's Day. The food was delicious, but I didn't like that it all came at once (drinks, appetizer to share and main meals). I prefer a slower pace where the drinks come first, then the appetizer, then the meals. Apart from that, very pretty location, great view, delicious food.

The food here is wonderful!! The guacamole, made tableside, is so delicious!!
The atmosphere is very authentic and brings me back to my vacation in Mexico.
Service is wonderful as well!!
The view of the Hudson River and the NY skyline is breath taking!!
I have dined here with family and friends many times and I will continue to do so.

This is a fun restaurant with delicious cocktails and Mexican food. Hostesses, servers, and bartender were all professional and very friendly. Service is quick. The views of Manhattan are spectacular and there is a view from every table and bar (2 floors and a small bar on each floor). They have some outdoor seating which looks great but it did not look like it could accommodate larger parties. But there is the beautiful view from anywhere inside the restaurant as well. We loved everything: guacamole, taquitos, enchiladas, melted queso dip, spicy ginger margarita was fantastic. I would definilty go back to Weehawkem location. I have not been to any of the other locations. The will valet your car for $4.

Everything was great! The food and service were on point. Our dinner guests do not get the opportunity to dine with a city view as often as we do, since they do not live near this area, so I requested a table by the window in the special requests section. When we first arrived we were seated opposite of the window, due to how busy the restaurant was. However, the host quickly arranged for window seating to be set up for us as soon as another party left and we were transferred over right away. While we were not upset or urgent of the request, I appreciate their importance to it and was pleased with the end result. It was a clear night sky with a perfect view to NYC. Must order: The Guacamole, it's amazing and made fresh at your table. Preferred Entrée: Sabor Azteca, which brings a little bit of everything.
