Things to do in Wood Ridge
My boyfriend and I finally stopped by this restaurant for take out (lunch). We ordered cuban sandwich with yuca fries and empanadas (ground beef, shredded chicken breast, and cheeseburger). Sandwich was tasty and not heavy at all. All empanadas were excellent! Prices were perfect. And a nice salsa music inside the store. I will totally dine in next time to try some of specialty caribbean platters!

An authentic Argentinean restaurant located in Moonachie, NJ! Serving the best cuts from Argentina. Amazing homemade empanadas, delicious desserts, and of course live tango on Thursday nights!
We drove 30 minutes to have a celebratory dinner here on a Saturday night. El Tango in Hackensack is located on Main Street but there's little parking on this busy downtown street, even on a Saturday night. We did manage to find parking on the street and walk one block, which is good, as the area had lots of other restaurants and patrons in the area.The restaurant is nicely decorated with 2 large screen TV's where the patrons can watch futbol, and the music is very hip and contemporary. There are about 10 tables and the wait staff is very friendly.The menu is varied with choices of appetizers, salads, entrees and sides, with heavy emphasis on the meats, although there was a small selection of seafood and pasta options. Our party of 5 ordered a meat sampler (times two) and several sides, as well as a shrimp appetizer and empanadas appetizer. The appetizers were very good but the meat sampler was only mediocre. The short ribs were very tough, the blood sausage was only ok and the sausage was mediocre. What we really liked on the platter was the flank steak and grilled chicken, and the sweetbreads were surprisingly tasty.The sides were average - salad, tomatoes and red onion, potato salad and beet salad. I was very surprised at the beet salad which was basically a sliced hard-boiled egg tossed in red beets which were definitely from a can. I eat beets often and this is what they look like in a can.It's a BYOB which is nice as it saves you $$. Not sure I'd drive all this way to return but if I were to return, I'd only order the flank steak as an entree.

I visited this location expecting the same yummy delicious menu as the location in New Mildford. Let's start from the outside... If you are not familiar with the area and you follow the address listed on the website, you can get lost. The place is small for the amount of customers the restaurant serves. The food was between good and average... Nothing to compare with the New Mildford location. The only thing I can say if was really good, was the drink .... Passion Fruit Mojito

The restaurant is very nice and clean. We were seated quickly. I love cuban food for its boiled yuca with mojo. They cooked the yuca to perfection and the mojo was delicious. other restaurants I have visited undercooked the yuca and that was not the case here. I was a happy camper.I ordered the Bistec de Pollo a la Plancha. Big piece of chicken but lacked the mojo sauce flavor. If you order this dish, ask for some mojo sauce on the side. My son had the Chicharron de pollo. He liked it a lot. It also could have used a little more mojo sauce.My wife had the vegetariano llego which was a sampler appetizer that was too much food. She really liked it. The black beans and rice were delicious while the maduros were delicious and cooked to perfection. Food was reasonably priced and definitely worth visiting.Tip: free valet parking.

At Mambo Tea House, we offer authentic Cuban cuisine and Asian teas in a beautiful and cozy setting. The merge of two cultures is a direct reflection of the co-owners. The husband and wife team are from the Caribbean and Hong Kong, respectively. Come in f
Overall decent place to enjoy lunch or dinner. I gave it 3-stars because the waiter was horrible. She kept chatting with the bar tender and hardly checked on us. I kept trying to get her attention about 4-5 times. I felt she could have paid a little bit more attention to her tables.
