Didn't bother to... 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

A trip to Seaside always includes a night (or 2 or 3) at the Spicy Cantina. Food is great, plentiful and reasonably priced. The tour de force for us are the buckets of rum and/or the Coronaritas. It does get busy and that's to be expected. A lot of people want to sit outside on the second floor, if you... More

On a 45 minute wait with 10 open tables, and a testy hostess. Wait an hour for food after 2 terrible margaritas, the food comes out with soupy Non-flavorful refried beans, and chicken chimichanga that tastes like chicken from a can with a disgusting taste. The only thing good was the server and the bartender who's name was Kristin who... More

Amazing how people can screw up something as simple as fries- not this place, though! Awesome service and a lively atmosphere. Definitely a recommended!
