It all started with a food truck…
With a passion for fresh Mexican cuisine and a rich history of family recipes, the dream of one day having a restaurant of our own was always a topic at our dinner table – we just did not know where to start. Then one day, our son had an idea. A food truck. A way for us to share our bold flavors and the joy we feel cooking for our family with as many people as we can. Our menu of tacos, quesadillas, and burritos was a hit. People loved them! Tender carnitas marinated overnight, succulent grilled shrimp, a range of house salsas – our menu was coming together.
As our menu came together – a new dynamic was coming together in our family. Mom would wake up early in the morning to prep food and get the truck ready for the day. Dad would purchase all the supplies making stops across town and getting everything ready. Our amazing kids would take the food truck on the road, find a perfect location, and fire up the kitchen.
Teamwork. Passion. Family. A year of hard work, early mornings, late nights, big laughs, big tears, and a never-ending drive to share what our family has created has driven us forward. A year later, we took the success - our family’s success - and launched our first brick and mortar location in Totowa NJ offering a full range of menu items that we had been dreaming about since day one.
There is no secret sauce (except for Momma Jenny’s), just hard work, perseverance, fresh ingredients, and above all, great tasting food.
We welcome you to our kitchen – to Sombrero Tacoria.
We are more than just a food establishment.
The Sombrero Tacoria has a mission.
Our family has dedicated their efforts to help those in need. We've been on many missions trips but no community has impacted our lives more than the children of a city called Anse-a-Pitres in the country of Haiti. After many trips we've help build two churches/school buildings that also serve as shelters for the surrounding community when needed.
