Adding more Mexican flavor to the Jewish suburbs of NYC, “BurritO’lam” will be opening soon in Teaneck, NJ, replacing the now closed Appetizer Factory.

Just came from Burrito’lam. I had a beef quesadilla and it was delicious. The portion was ample, the beef seasoned well and the vegetables and parve cheese were very tasty. Soda refills were allowed.
