I'm not usually a fan of Mexican restaurants because of the typical quality, but I do love Mexican food. So I was a little leery when family said they wanted to go to Tequila Mockingbird, but I figured I'd try it with an open mind. I started with the short rib quesadilla, and it was amazing! The meat was cooked... More

This place was recommended and did not disappoint. We were here on a Sunday and sat in the bar area where several football specials were being offered. I would highly recommend the margaritas and the mahi or rockfish tacos. Seafood enchiladas were also delicious. This place seems like a favorite local hangout.

We have been to Tequila Mockingbird many times and it never disappoints us! We love their salsa and always order their queso! Today my husband ordered steak tacos and I had the la casa salad with chicken. Both were great! I love their chipotle ranch dressing! Since we went for a late lunch - we didn't have to wait! But...

My wife and I met some friends at Tequila Mockingbird. I found the food to be very delicious and the service was great. After one visit, I see this becoming a favorite.

First time patrons. House Marguerita was giant and delicious only $5 at happy hour. Rock fish tacos were great with sides of rice and re-fried beans. Steak and chicken fajitas were sizzling and served with fresh lettuce, tomato, cheese, tortillas. Well spiced and flavorful. Complimentary corn chips and fresh salsa were exceptional. Fresh made guacamole was delicious. Our server was... More

If you're up for American Mexican food at the beach in a comfy setting Tequila Mockingbird is a great place to try. Our dishes ranged from rockfish, fried fish, and grilled shrimp tacos to enchiladas and chimichangas. The portions were hearty and the drink list was fun. You get a basket of chips and fresh salsa while you wait for... More

This is my wife's personal favorite restaurant of anywhere and I see her point. The first round of chips are on the house with chunky salsa generously consisting of onion and jalapeno in addition to the fresh tomato. We ordered guacamole which was delicious if a bit mild for my tastes. Very creamy avocado however which was nice. My wife... More

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
