The chicken tacos were pretty good and so was the cheese quesadilla. The salsa that comes with the food tasted really strange. My husband had the nachos and said it was mostly refried beans from a can.

The food here is hardly authentic, but it doesn't claim to be. It's Jersey-Mex: think Mexican staples with a comfort food twist. The restaurant itself reflects this; tiny, unpretentious with beach house flair. And for what they do, they do it well. Food is consistently tasty, fresh and fast. The Fish Burrito is my go-to choice. Though I find that... More

Much lighter fare than my hubby and I's numero uno choice Cinco De Mayo on West Ave. A single burrito from Red's cannot be shared and will not fill up a hungry couple, for example, which is what we like to do since we're on a budget. This is our second go at Red's and we both ordered the fish... More

This is by far one of the best Mexican places around and THE BEST in OCNJ. We go here every Summer when we are there. I think I just read that they are actually open all year round so I will keep that in mind. Great tacos, rice and really amazing fish tacos. They also have some burgers and wraps... More

Visited with family during a recent trip. Interior was deceiving and on the small side. Decided on takeout. Food was excellent, ingredients seemed fresh and meals were tasty. My fire roasted Chicken Enchiladas had just the right amount of spice. Family was equally appreciative of food quality. Little skimpy on the tortilla chips and salsa. Give it a go.

When I read some of the recent reviews of Red's I almost skipped it this vacation. I had eaten there over the years and always found the food to be consistently very good. I visited on July 2nd and was not disappointed. There were six in our party; three adults and three children ranging in age from 8 - 14.... More

The food was terrible. The pork tasted like it was stale. There was no juice at all, dried out nachos. Yuk!

Dry like everywhere in Ocean City, but simple uncomplicated TexMex food, lovely service from the two friendly teenage girls running the place; all within cycling distance of me auntie's condo

My family tried Red's take out last night for the first time. The place is a couple of blocks away so we figured it be quick dinner. I drove there and the meals were ready for pickup when I arrived. There were no real complaints with anything with the exception of the hard shelled beef tacos. The cook put the... More

Why does great, five star, Mexican food only get three stars? The dining experience is little better than a one star. This place is a very busy take-out/delivery Mexican restaurant with seating for 16 people. The kitchen is preparing 10 take-out orders for every 1 dine in order. Consequently, the kitchen and staff are very busy but you are waiting... More
