August at the Jersey Shore definitely consists of a night out at the Seaside Heights Boardwalk!!! Last night my husband and I went to the Spicy Cantina which was on the boardwalk, upper floor.

We always come here to eat when we go down the shore. The food and drinks are great!! We love there margaritas there delish. Sitting on the balcony side has a great view. The people who work there are so nice. This is my favorite spot to hang out and eat at. Definitely always an amazing time!!

LOVED it here! We had lunch here our first day and dinner on our last night. Really good food and drinks. It also has a great night life, turns into a club scene at night.

A trip to Seaside isn't complete without a trip to Spicy's Cantina! Love the atmosphere and LOVE that year after year we are able to get our favorite waitress, Layla! Food is great, drinks are great, people are great!

My wife and I love this place. Plenty of food options and plenty of drink options. Our favorites are the Coronarita and the Bucket of Rum. The bartenders are super nice and the live entertainment was fun to watch and listen to. A fun atmosphere. Can't wait to go back.
