• Welcome to tacoshop

    tacoshop is a modern taqueria that pays homage to all the Latin flavors that Chef Lucas Manteca loves. The menu takes its inspiration from Oaxacan cuisine, but that’s just where our journey begins. The menu traces back to Chef’s Argentinian roots for empanadas, zips to Peru for ceviche, and back home to New Jersey for a pork roll “Jerseycano”. Everything is scratch-made, from the flour tortillas, to the slow-braised pork; no canned beans here! We like to think of tacoshop as slow food for fast people. Grab and go if you’re in a hurry, or hang a while on the outdoor patio; that's where we'd sit and dunk the addictive Birria tacos. Deanna has created a bright, happy space that’s equally modern-casual, yet 70’s Cali-cool at the same time. It’s a little taqueria, a lot snack bar, and it caters to all appetites—yes, vegetarians too. From our crowd-favorite Street Corn to our soon-to-be-fav Tuna Poke Bowl, this is food you'll want every day of the week.

    See you soon, Cape May Court House!
