    Delicious fish tacos and decent margaritas.  My kids loved the quesadillas and guacamole.  Good service.

    Not the best meal or experience I've had in the DMV. The dining area was practically empty on a Saturday night on Labor Day weekend. The bartender was generous to extend HH pricing to us in the dining area.

    Chips and salsa came out late, as all of our appetizers and entrees were piece meal delivered. Salsa tasted a day old, not fresh. The rockfish tacos were not cooked correctly and tasted very fishy. All puns intended. My chicken quesadilla ($13) tasted more BBQ flavored than anything. It was accompanied by a spoonful of rice and beans, literally.

    No one was impressed and agreed it would be our first and last time. Their sign boats best margarita in the states and ironically I could not of disagreed more.

    My family of six and I decided to stop here after arguing about what we wanted for dinner for the past half hour. We could not have been more satisfied. The wait staff was kind and patient, as well as accommodating. My sister mistakenly ordered a dish that had flour tortillas, but she thought it was corn tortillas (she's gluten free). The waiter promptly brought out corn tortillas so she could eat her meal. We received our food within 15 minutes of ordering. Everyone loved their food (seafood and chicken enchiladas, hard beef tacos and soft chicken tacos, fish tacos, and a taco salad). It was absolutely delicious, and we ended up stuffed. The place is pretty lively for a Wednesday evening. Highly recommended!

    Did a door dash delivery last night. The delivery service and driver were great! Food was mediocre at best. I've had worse Mexican but I've definitely had better.

    Ehhh...this place was ok. We're staying in Ocean City for a few days and we were craving Tex-Mex so we decided to try this place out. I guess Matteo's is technically in Fenwick Island but it's literally like 10 minutes from where we're staying at in OC. Now I want to say that I don't really expect much from restaurants in a beach town because 90% of the time the food is average and that's exactly what we got here.

    As soon as we walked in the first thing we noticed was how dark it was inside. I'm all for dim lighting but it was a little too dark. The hostess was very nice and she let us pick where we wanted to sit. It wasn't really busy when we got there so maybe that's why. Our waiter was nice but just not really attentive. The chips they give you tasted old and the salsa tasted like the canned ones that you get from the store. We ordered the steak fajitas and that came with rice, beans, sour cream, and tortillas. You have to ask for guac just fyi. The fajitas were lacking flavor but I've had worse so no biggie (just add some salt and you'll be fine). The guac and rice were also lacking in the flavor department. The only foods that were nicely seasoned were the beans and rice. The tortillas tasted like those that come from a taco box kit, definitely not restaurant quality.

    Overall, this place was average. I would check around and read other reviews of other Tex-Mex places before heading here.
