We were not hopful at first when we first saw the small, storefront of this restaurant in a strip mall. But, once inside, our opinion changed quickly. Nice decor, courteous staff, and delicious food. We already have it marked on our calendar for next year.

First the menu has a LOT to chose from. A good laugh at the creative names used in their dishes! Lets talk food. Portions are huge. Priced right. We have recently become part time residents and the hunt for good food was on. Food is...delicious! Appetizers are really good. Queso delic! Quesadillas are REALLY good-my sons go to. Fajitas and burritos all very good. We’ve ordered from here a lot. Highly recommend! For COVID- we found theyve taken great care and thought in creating space indoor by adding outdoor seating. Weve only done take out but we would consider use of outdoor seating here. Also drinks ate great. They have a crazy amount of tequila varieties.More

This used to be my goto place from when it opened until 2 years ago. This is first time I’ve been back in 2 years and food quality has deteriorated. Salsa week now and boring. Fajitas also just average and signature margaritas seemed a little...watered down. I may just go to papa grandes or grab and go tacosMore

Love this place. Excellent food and service. The restaurant is set up to help keep with the social distancing rules which is important these days. Try the salsa sampler if you like hot salsa. Very hot and spicy. We all got different soft tacos. The...chicken, tuna and rockfish tacos where delicious. The red sangria was also refreshing..More

We grabbed take out from here. Service was quick, the woman that helped us friendly, but the food was just ok. I feel like it was very expensive for what we received (I know that tourist spots tend to be higher priced), but it didn't...even come with free chips and salsa. I didn't get drinks, but their drink menu looked extensive and good. I would come here for the bar, not necessarily the food.More

Our waitress was very good. Wait time from entering the order was too much. Salsa was excellent. I had the spicj beef tacos....just passable. The portion of refried beans (which I love) was meager. It looked like dog food and wasn't too tasty. I would...not go again. Rice was weird. I would have preferred yellow rice.More

Not enough help in this restaurant and our food was so dry the chicken rubbery. Wait staff very slow.

Went on a busy Thursday night. Seated in the bar area, very loud but typical. Service was reasonable for a busy night. Got the triple sampler for an appetizer, el diablo was very hot, lived up to it's name. Ordered "The Big Juan", was very...large and filling. No complaints, would go again if back in Ocean City.More

We have gone to this place several times in the Summer (but, be aware, it can be crowded and there can be long lines) and it was always worth it. We decided to try it in the Winter. The food was just as tasty, the...service just as quick and friendly, the margaritas just as good. And I love the menu titles: Smokey & the Burrito, Raiders of the Lost Salad, Fajitas in the Mist, etc. You won't be disappointed. GO! GO!More
