Mexican food on the Seaside Heights Boardwalk

Friendly service, accommodating staff. Food average, but not bad. Great bar on the 1st level, and fabulous views of the ocean from the 2nd floor. We were there during a driving rain storm and still enjoyed everything.

I love this place. The food is aways amazing and I love that you can sit upstairs and have a beautiful view of the beach. It's always busy to expect to wait. It's by far the best food on the boardwalk. I go here during the summer and in the off season.

Love Spicy! Great food we eat there almost every weekend! Our favorites are chicken burrito and fajitas! And they have Long Board beer on tap, from Hawaii!

We love to eat at Spicy's, we love the food, the upstairs, open air ocean view & the friendly staff. Upstairs we like the authentic Mexican food offered. The portions are quite large & the best part is the food tastes amazing. Our favorite server who has been there a few years is Layla. We find her to be a... More

Went with the family to Spicy's and enjoyed a nice ocean view with a gentle breeze. Food was pretty good too! They have a nice selection of Margaritas to boot! We shall return......

We sat on the beach front upstairs and had a great view but the breeze was a bit of a pest. Only yards from our condo and afterwards we walked on the boardwalk and by accident... More
