The food was great , get the lobster shrimp quesadilla you won't be disappointed. Plus I asked for Layla as your waitress. She's got a beautiful smile and a beautiful personality and is a wonderful waitress. Layla made the experience that much more special. Thanks Layla

Stopped in here while on the boardwalk to get drinks and some dinner. Service was excellent. They were very busy and we were not ignored! Food was good, and prices are average. Will most likely visit again!

Spicy's Bar, Lounge, and Cantania has always been top of the line in doing food and liquor. This place is always crowed up stairs and down stairs during the summer. The summer time entertainment is excellent at Spicy's. When sitting outside up stairs on a summer day the view of the ocean is breath taking.The Mexican Cantania is up stair... More

We had the classic boardwalk fare, not Mexican. Pizza, fries, cheese steak. The cheese balls are the best, but everything else was okay. Everything on the boardwalk is kinda overpriced so don't be surprised by that. Service was okay as well.

Was there Saturday night decent service and ok prices. Tuna was good. They had a better then average margarita, which is a good thing. Friends with me didn't care for it much but he's from Texas so very critical about Mexican good.

We visited this location on a referral and it happened to be my first visit to the Shore. All eight of us were very unhappy with the drinks (sangria, warm/sour beer and poorly mixed drinks) and the appetizers (spring rolls & mozzarella cheese) were just as horrible. The apps were served on paper plates with plastic forks and the drinks... More

Typical Mexican fare. Only overpriced. Nothing really stood out. Food was ok. The free chips were great but the salsa was awful. Tasteless and watery. Service was really slow and barly saw our server.

Friday night we stopped in for drinks & appetizers. Knowing how huge the platter of nachos are, we decided to make a dinner out of appetizers. Our nachos with ground beef were excellent. We also had southwest egg rolls which were good. Everyone who passed by our table commented on how good they looked & that they were also going... More
