Restaurant Spotlight: Hudson Taco Brings the Heat to Newburgh

Three open face meat tacos on tortillas with green cilantro on topDid you know that Mexican restaurants make up a fairly large portion of the restaurant industry in the United States? Texas leads the way as the state with the largest share of Mexican restaurants! Foods and flavors from Mexico have influenced American cuisine for centuries but in the most recent years Mexican-inspired foods have really grown in popularity and spread to every corner of the country. In our little corner here in the Hudson Valley, we’ve got our own culinary mecca and Hudson Taco is rising to the top as a favorite Mexican choice in Newburgh, NY.

With over 300 reviews on Google and a 4.5-star rating, Hudson Taco is gaining fans from all over. Owners Nick Citera and Nicolas DiBrizzi, who also own and operate four locations of Cosimo’s restaurants, as well as the Pizza Shop, desired to open an eclectic Mexican eatery. They were inspired to create a social concept with a menu designed for sharing. Housed in the West Shore Train Station, Hudson Taco also has a fantastic 60-foot enclosed patio, giving patrons a panoramic view of the river and the Highlands. 

The menu shows inventive dishes that highlight Hudson Valley farms and ingredients. You will find favorites such as beef and pork tacos and nachos but also delicious options such as Korean barbecue short rib tacos, tuna poke, and build-your-own bowls. The extensive wine list was created with purpose to ensure all choices pair well with the features on the menu. Their “off peak” happy hour is very popular with locals and visitors alike. Monday to Friday from 4:30-6:30 you can grab $5 margaritas, mojitos, Newburgh Brewing’s corn lager, tacos and more!
