I went on the recommendation of the Surf and Turf Fajitas! They were terrible. At 30 bucks per person, times 3. Plus a 3 Beers. Terrible food and bad recommendations.. Pass.

We chose to sit in the cantina side (not the main restaurant) so we could get seated faster. Not as loud as the main restaurant, and ONLY beer/wine available on this side—no hard alcohol. Family was happy with food and seating arrangements. While we waited...More

The happy hour tacos were great. We entered the main restaurant, but it was booked so we went next door to the little bar and to-go area which was way quieter. The sauteed tacos were delicious and we will definitely return!

In a strip shopping center. I would say the decor is nothing to rave about. But who cares? The food is delicious. Enchiladas are great and so is the burrito. Chips and salsa seem authentic. Not an expert on authentic Mexican food but this is...More

Very nice and quiet away from the bar area. Nice service. The meal was really good. MY wife was not happy with her. It was too spicy for her.

Thank you for the great review! Yes, we are definitely on the spicy side, but your wife can let us know her preferences next time and we can go easy on the jalapenos :)

Thank you for trusting the good reviews and checking out Mother's! We appreciate your comments about the balance of cheese...we work hard on that (cause of course we love cheese too!). Thanks for the great review!

Not everything in Ocean City is seafood, burgers, other fast foods, etc. If you visit Mother's you will not only find great drinks, but some of the better Tex-Mex foods you will find anywhere. If you like Tacos and Portebello Mushroom Mex Salads, this is...More
