Lambert: Kevin Martin and Stephanie Baker show off some of the new menu items at Taco Taco.They’re doing it quick. They’re doing it simple. They’re doing it the customer’s way.

And now, they’re doing it for breakfast, too.

Kevin Martin and Stephanie Baker first introduced their “good food fast” philosophy to Millville with Taco Taco in the winter of 2016, enjoying a successful first summer season while offering up “fresh Mex” fare for both lunch and dinner, whether dining in or ordering out.

That’s the same concept that Taco Taco will stay true to this summer, with the addition of the all-new a.m. menu-options making their burrito-board debut by popular demand.

“Just about anything that you could want for breakfast, we’ve got it here,” said Kevin Martin. “Everyone who’s tried it has had nothing but good things to say. People are coming back. We’ve even had people come in from California and the Southwest and tell us that it was the best breakfast burrito they’ve ever had.”

“We come in for breakfast all the time,” added Rebecca Chandler, part of the team at All About U Salon & Spa next door, who have been Taco Taco regulars since the beginning. “My go-to omelet is the veggie. The breakfast burritos are on point, too. And Kevin and Steph are great — very friendly, very fun, always a good laugh.”

Starting at 6:30 a.m., beachgoers and Taco Taco regulars alike can head in for a cup of fresh brewed coffee and chose from an array of early-morning options, such as breakfast burritos served with crispy homefries, three-egg omelets or just a good old American breakfast sandwich served on a bagel, toast or English muffin.

Meat options include chorizo, bacon and sausage, but South of the Border meets Sussex County with Rappa scrapple and Taylor’s pork roll added to the lineup.

Ordering is made to be simple, with burritos and omelets typically wrapped up with peppers, onion, pico de gallo and either American, cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese; but adding on sides — including the house-made guacamole or melted queso dip — is more than cool with the Taco Taco crew, too.

“We’re easy. You can mix it up if you want,” said Martin. “The eggs are cracked right in front of you. The scrapple and chorizo and the sausage are all cooked right on the grill. Fresh brewed coffee. It’s just worth it to be able to offer good, fresh products.”

Breakfast is available all day, but there are also some new happenings when it comes to the lunch menu this summer, too.

Ordering been further streamlined for tacos, burritos, salad bowls and quesadillas, with either “Baha style” or “traditional” options, and Taco Taco’s new “Big Kids” menu features cheeseburgers, hot dogs and grilled cheese, all served with a side of french fries.

Sides of house-made salsa, guac, chile con queso, tortilla chips, Spanish rice and beans, and black bean soup are all still available, and cooler drinks, including Jaritos sodas, Mexican Coca-Cola, Gatorade and juices, have been added for on-the-go ordering as well.

As for new dessert options, Martin said that it was the house-made tres leches that takes the cake.

Right now, Taco Taco is open Monday through Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., but they will stay open until 7 p.m. starting Tuesday, June 13. The restaurant will stay open through the winter for breakfast and lunch, and offers both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as call-ahead ordering.
