Blue Moon Mexican Café: Sponsored

Life is a fiesta! This is the philosophy of the people who operate the extraordinarily popular Blue Moon Mexican Café. The folks at Blue Moon have been spreading that "fiesta feeling" and a lot of great Mexican food in Englewood and throughout North Jersey and beyond for more than 20 years.

Blue Moon Café has managed to capture that friendly "neighborhood place" vibe, while serving up some of the best Mexican food in the New York Metro area. Blue Moon is a place to meet friends or go out with the family to celebrate special occasions. Blue Moon presents an upbeat welcoming atmosphere.

The real secret to this restaurant's success is the food. The fajitas and guacamole are just great, but the most popular item on the menu might be the Fajita Moon, which is marinated grilled strips of steak with sauteed peppers and onions, sliced avocado, refried beans and Mexican rice all wrapped in a flour tortilla then smothered in melted cheese served with pico de gallo and jalapenos. The best value on the Blue Moon menu is the Nachos & Sangria, which includes enough homemade tortilla chips tossed with melted cheese, salsa, jalapenos, refried beans, guacamole and sour cream to allow you to enjoy the Blue Moon experience on a budget. There is a full bar at all locations and, of course, you can count on authentic Margaritas and Sangria. 

Blue Moon Mexican Cafe' is located at 23 East Palisade Avenue, Englewood, New Jersey. They also have locations in Norwood, Woodcliff Lake, Wyckoff and Jersey City, New Jersey and Bronxville, New York.
