Fresh Pond Mexican Restaurant

67-22 Fresh Pond Rd

Ridgewood, NY 11385

Fresh Pond Mexican is nothing to look at -- it's named after the Ridgewood street it resides on, and its outdoor facade is plastered with weathered photos of its dishes à la Chinese take-out shops. None of that matters though, because you're here for the tacos, made traditionally with double-stacked white corn tortillas, tender chopped pork, and a spice mix that cuts through the savory meat. Each taco is topped with avocado and diced onion, and thanks to Fresh Pond's freakishly low price point, you can order three or four and still consider your whole meal a steal.
