Description:

Siblings Brooke Jankow and Steve Zoerner just teamed up to open a Cal-Mex place called Swell Taco, in Babylon. The casual counter service eatery is situated in the back-alley-parking-lot-facing space that last hosted Lucy's.

Jankow, in fact, worked at Lucy's for several years. Zoerner, who cooked at several Southern California restaurants, trained at Ricardo's in San Juan Capistrano, a place he and Jankow frequented while growing up. Many of the recipes served in Babylon come from there.

Both soft and hard corn tortillas, along with soft flour tortillas, are offered. On the menu: a fish taco ($3.50), a "crunch and munch" ground beef taco featuring a hard corn tortilla wrapped in a soft flour one ($2.50), a "San Clemente" burrito ($6.25) with grilled chicken and, also, a steak quesadilla ($4.95).
