We always come here for the taco special when we stay in Ocean City. The chips and salsa are always good and their taco shells are some of the best, crisp but thin, Taco special night is a cheap dinner for us and everyone is full.

We've been visiting this place for a few years now. Timing is key do you don't have to wait for a table (even though it's well worth the wait!). Their Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos are absolutely the best I've ever had, and if someone near you orders the fajitas, you'll be sure to want those too, as anything that smells... More

We enjoyed our 1st visit on a Sunday night. Still very busy and we opted for the back bar instead of waiting 20 minutes for a table. Our bartender was very friendly and attentive. I really enjoyed my Short Rib Hard Tacos (3) and my wife enjoyed her Soft Shell Chicken Tacos (2, larger than the hard tacos). Complimentary chips... More

Whenever we make a trip to Ocean City Maryland we make it a point to visit Tequila Mockingbird. The food is great, Margaritas are very good and the prices are very good. We usually walk from our condo and walk back. Nice safe area.

Ate here twice because it was the closest Mexican restaurant near Montego Bay. The cheese dip was pretty good, we made it better by mixing in the pico de gallo (salsa). The ground beef tacos didn't taste as if the meat was seasoned but there was plenty of cheese, lettuce & tomatoes. I did not eat the beans. The spicy... More

We were looking for a restaurant and challenged find in one that met our standards. We looked in tequila mockingbird and it was busy at 5:00 so we stopped in. The food and service was excellent. I would recommend it!

Really great little place for drinks. We just got back from the beach and on one of our last nights there we took our best friends out for drinks. Unlike most bars that stay open till 2 am Tequila Mockingbird tends to play it by ear, depending on how busy it is they close anywhere from 11 pm - 12:30... More

I have eaten here a couple times. It's your traditional Mexican joint. Tacos are good, service is quick, prices are reasonable for beach town.

We like to go out for Mexican food because we love it, and it is super cheap at the restaurants near our home. We loved the name of this restaurant, too, so it seemed like the perfect place to go. The food was very good. My daughter and her friend each had flank steak fajitas, I had the portobello fajitas,... More

Went here for dinner with the family. I had the frozen strawberry margarita which was awesome! The guacamole is also legit, the food portions are big, and the service was attentive. None of us could finish our meals.
