Nasty, nasty, nasty. Let me repeat - nasty, nasty, nasty. The food was not authentic. Be aware that this is a take out place and not a sit down restaurant. I was ok with that but the food was so awful. We got the nachos which were edible but not good food. We also got the taquito platter and the... More

We are Tequila Mockingbird regulars, but just could not get it together to go out last night. So, we ordered carry out from here. The food was great. I had the flautas, which were amazingly light for mexican food. Crispy, flavorful chicken, perfectly ripe avocado. My husband had a burrito, which he enjoyed as much as I did my food.... More

Great traditional dishes made to order. Yes, that takes time, so if you want Taco Bell, don't come here. We try to stop by here each visit to OC.

One of the only few places open for lunch. The food was good, serving portions very generous, and amazing service. We order Carne Asada and shrimp platter. We love the food it taste like homemade. Clean place, good service, very busy place, and affordable prices.

This is one of the best food places of any kind in Ocean City, or on the Eastern Shore for that matter. Try it and see for yourself. We live in Salisbury and drive here just for a burrito. Say hello to Abuelita for us while you're there.

Unless you're willing to wait 40 minutes for a botched order, this place isn't for you. Two hard working, but past middle age prepare your food. Mind you, the food isn't bad. Tasty and flavorful. But wait for a reasonably simple order of tacos, shrimp and soup. After the 40 minute wait, I wish them luck since it would be... More

I Had to make an emergency stop at the AT&T store which was next door and was in the mood for Mexican food. I was not familiar with this restaurant and I my first impression of the place was poor. I should have listened to my first impression. I ordered a burrito and since it is a carryout restaurant I... More

We stopped here on our way home and picked up two pork burritos to go and ate them at a nearby park. Big, but delicious burritos. Cheap and friendly service.
