Not much seating at this restaurant, but the food is quite good. Everything tastes fresh and homemade here. I had the Super Burrito with pulled pork that was delicious, with a mild flavor. My favorite is the "Jersey Mex" fusion BBQ Pork Burrito with pulled pork, barbeque sauce and cheese. The salsa is also delicious and fairly low on the... More

We've been coming to Red's for years (dining in and take-out) and like the super burrito platters. Burritos are tasty and fresh. The young lady at the counter has a great smile, and is very friendly. We need to make sure one of our meals is non-dairy and they always get it right unlike most other places. This is the... More

If you are looking for Mexican fare with a laid back attitude where all the locals go...this is the place. Red, the owner, is just that. Cool and really pleasant to deal with. If you have any special requests he will try to please. This place won't win any decorating awards but its surfer vibe, pleasant staff and fantastic food... More

We had fish tacos and they were good. Nachos were just ok. "Restaurant" had 5 tables, no a/c and no credit cards so be prepared. They do have an atm.

We eat here often for lunch. They have about six tables inside were they have waitress service or you can get take out or they deliver to the beach. The food is always good. The servers are always pleasant. There is no a/c but always a nice breeze. It is cash only. There is an ATM inside. They offer a... More

I visited this place with some friends,one of whom is mexican. It might be telling you something that he was the only Mexican person eating there. I had a fish taco which was decent but not very flavorful. My friends had burritos which they really did not like. One toddler had a quesadilla which was hard and dry. The salsa... More

My family had dinner here - we found the food to be surprisingly good, given the unassuming exterior. They actually have 5 or 6 tables inside, so you can sit and eat (although I think takeout is a much bigger business for them). My beef enchiladas were very good, and my wife's fish tacos fresh. Service was fine, although the... More

Rojo's (Now Red's Jersey Mex) in Ocean City is one of the best spots along the South Jersey Shore!. Our fav for takeouts. The chorizo breakfast burrito may be the best breakfast meal ever. Ever! Outstanding. "Reds" is a great guy, friendly and runs a nice, small neighborhood joint. The kind of place you see all the time & hope... More

It doesn't look like much from outside but who cares what it looks like if the food is good. We went there for the large gluten free menu and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. I had the mahi mahi tacos as recommended by our server and they were great. large pieces of fish. The rest of... More

The chicken tacos were pretty good and so was the cheese quesadilla. The salsa that comes with the food tasted really strange. My husband had the nachos and said it was mostly refried beans from a can.
