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

We usually try Mexican food as a family tradition so we tried this place. Sorry we even considered it :( the food was so bad we could barely bring ourselves to eat it, in fact we threw most of it away. There was no spice or flavor to any of the food. We were shocked that the other reviews were... More

Our kids enjoy mexican food so we always seem to wind up here during everyy visit to Ocean City for a casual dinner. It was a quiet night so service was lightning fast. Excellent salsa. Not acidic like most places. The guac is prepackaged even though they claim it is fresh made. (I think they mix in some salsa). If... More

Small place in a strip mall 3 blocks from the boardwalk. Outstanding fresh food. (tacos burritos nachos etc). small restaurant. Sometimes a long wait for a table. The 2 people in the kitchen are always hustling to get orders out while running for the phone for take out orders. This sometimes leads to a long wait to be served. Terrific... More

The fresh made tortilla chips made all the difference. Crisp and non-greasy, these made the nachos amazing. The food is all freshly made, good serving sizes. Even the fried ice cream was great. This being said, the place is small, only 6 or so tables and BUSY. Between deliveries, take out and table orders the food took a little while.... More
