Good but pricey

Went out for drinks n dinner n not worth it. Good apps but shots where expensive. Who in their right mind would buy a $24 shot of tequila. Stay with what ya know n give it a whirl.

LOCATION 500 Boardwalk in Seaside Heights, NJ. AMBIANCE Nice, casual Mexican restaurant right on the boardwalk with friendly staff. We left our stuff on the beach and walked here... More

Food was decent and the drinks were good. I think the prices were a little high but you are at the beach that is expected.... Try the nachos! You won't finish them!

Spicey's is one flight up and they have a veranda with a great ocean and boardwalk views. Wait staff was efficient with no language issues. The drink selection is nicely varied and the margaritas are top notch. The food is 5 star quality. Salsa and nacho chips are complementary The seafood dishes were delicious. On occasion, they will make guacamole... More

First time here and a nice surprise. While there was a 45 minute wait during peak summer season to sit outside in the upstairs 'prime seating spots' that overlook the Boardwalk, it was worth it. The upstairs bar is great, and the margaritas that are freshly made were a very nice surprise. Great bartending staff, friendly, and offer great cocktail... More

We ate down stairs near the bar not upstairs in the restaurant, downstairs had great food! LOVED the wings so tasty and not over fried, fried to order as well so they are not sitting around. Also great margaritas. Will return for more.

Spicy's is the pace to go for the best Mexican food in Seaside Park and Seaside Heights. With colorful charters all around the place and good Mexican food Spicy's is the best Mexican food at the shore.

Spicy's food is big enough to share. Yes, it's a little pricey but the portions are huge. This is a restaurant, not a cart or a boardwalk stand. Wait service varies from stellar to lackadaisical, but the huge margarita($9) takes me a bit to drink so I'm not that miffed about it.I'm allergic to many common ingredients, and care is... More
