Great inexpensive mex food and drinks. Right on the boardwalk. On a summer night catch great local musicians that play the blues to rock to upcoming bands like Deal Casino. Great staff great music !

This was my second visit. I stayed with the taco entrée which again was delicious and a lot of food! My young grandson thoroughly enjoyed his mac and cheese! We sat at a table looking out at the boardwalk which kept him entertained. Our server was friendly and attentive.

Got tacos here twice - low key, casual, good quality chicken (always an issue for me!) and excellent chips and salsa. Right on boardwalk, funky vibe.

They really deserve a 5 because the food was so good and fresh but the servers are or were surly. It was a holiday weekend and a little busy but I've seen it busier. Was our first time there. somewhat costly for what it is but again, food was amazing.

On the Asbury Park boardwalk you can't miss Pop's Garage. If you're looking for good burritos & tacos give it a try. It has indoor and boardwalk seating and we were outside for the people-watching. I found my burrito excellent and my partner liked her fish tacos. Go with cocktails like a Cuba Libre. Their beer selection is pretty weak.... More

Full moon, dog friendly?? We had two dogs. Kids loved it. Spicy chimichangas. Margaritas were Cher $11-14 each. Would return Full moon rising over the ocean was magical and reflective. Boardwalk life is back and busy.

We moved to AP in May, and love this place. Great tortas, black bean soup, and salads. Haven't had them yet, but people rave about the burritos and tacos. Fun vibe, and you can sit outside for great Boardwalk people watching, and an ocean view.

Good food at moderate prices. They have typical Mexican dishes but most have an unusual twist. Ingredients are very fresh and high quality. Lovely salads, burittos, tacos, etc. Casual, down to earth atmosphere, perfect for dining on the boardwalk and great for kids.

The food was great! Sangria was alittle watered down. Atmosphere was nice. Great view of Asbury Park. Pricing was great. Service alittle slow, but good came fast. Had to wait a little longer to pay though.

Thank ladybug118

Pop's Garage, our beloved Mexican taqueria, is an extension of the Kitschens family. Through over-stuffed burritos, savory tacos and skirt steak Jaliscos, Pop's Garage is our way of bringing the soothing ocean breezes, warm summer sun and the nonstop neighborhood fiestas of Sayulita, Mexico to the Jersey Shore. Just as it does for us, we hope in some way, Pop's Garage reminds you of your own south-of-the-border travels, complete with food, culture and fun! It brings us back to Sayulita just talking about it! Esta muy bien!
