Newburgh’s revitalization period has arrived—and it comes bearing tacos. Located on Warburton Avenue, Hudson Taco is one of many new businesses springing up in Newburgh as creative sand investors have begun taking note of the waterfront city’s tide of revitalization. Nick Citera and Nicolas DiBrizzi (of Cosimo’s Restaurant Group) repaired and remodeled the crumbling West Shore Railroad Station, an architectural gem in Newburgh created by the designers of the railroad’s more popular sibling, the Grand Central Station. The newly restored train station now houses the Pizza Shop and Hudson Taco, a well-appointed Mexican-fusion restaurant and bar serving up delicious plates.

From the outside, Hudson Taco is impressive, with a 60-foot enclosed patio and panoramic views of the Hudson River and highlands. Nano doors keep customers warm without sacrificing the beautiful view. The interior houses a modern, industrial ambience with exposed brick walls, hanging lamps that cast a warm glow, and metal-framed prismic chandeliers. Customers can choose to sit by the intimate bar or snag a seat by the windows in a booth or table. The intimate-yet-chic design makes Hudson Taco a perfect place for family taco night or a romantic date for two. Manager Dwayne Brant describes the restaurant as a “social gathering dining experience.” When the customer wants to order, they wave a card in the air, which signals the waiter. The food comes out as soon as it’s fresh and ready, tapas-style.

When it comes to menu options, the Hudson Taco does not cut corners. The Hudson Taco, aims to put a spin on a longstanding favorite, “We wanted to come up with new concepts on Mexican street food, and keep everything locally sourced from all the farms in the area,” says Bryant. With more than a dozen taco options, there is something for everyone, including pork carnitas, mushroom and shishito pepper, baja fish, and Korean BBQ short rib. If you want to make it a meal, add some steak and shishito nachos, some of abuela’s chicken soup, or a charred corn salad.


Hudson Taco offers an array of appetizers, bowls, and sides if you’re looking to explore more than just their taco territory. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a churro and some chocolate dip or fried Hudson Valley apple pie. If you’re looking for a more adventurous flavor profile, opt for the Mexican spiced brownie or the lemon jalapeno jar.

And of course, tacos taste better with a few drinks! Hudson Taco spices things up with cocktails like Kiss and Fire (white rum, lime, jalapeno, and watermelon) and a wide selection of blanco and resposado tequilas. From the menu to the atmosphere, Hudson Taco is quickly becoming a community favorite. “We’ve been exceeding expectations,” Bryant says. “We are trying to bring this to the next level and create a high-end taqueria.”

  • Kingston Standard Sets The Bar for Community Breweries

    The Kingston Standard Brewing Co. aims to bring local folks together in a community-oriented space to drink and enjoy each others' company. The company strays from the popular IPA driven mission of most breweries, and instead provides light, drinkable beer and fresh, succulent oysters to foster a satisfying night out. While they primarily produce traditional Ales and Lagers, they also craft mixed fermentation style beers, including lambics and Flemish reds. However, this recently opened brewery is ever-expanding its drink list, so repeat customers will see more options arise in the future and can enjoy local wine and cider options available in the meantime.
