Lex Mex has the best Mexican we’ve found on LBI. The pulled pork tacos and seafood burrito are favorites. We also like the fajitas and that they aren’t brought out while still sizzling but are handleable. You’ll be charged for each soda or seltzer so...More

A small BYOB restaurant conveniently near Rt 72 with great choice of Mexican specialties- fish tacos among the best. Lines in summer a bit long as normal for LBI but staff could help more by nudging diners who have finished but are just rudely sitting,...More

We were vacationing in a condo just down from Lex Mex and just had to go in. Nice place for lunch. Food was good and portions were large. Glad we stopped in.

My boys went here for dinner and raved about it. The nachos are fantastic and the pork burritos are superb. They are looking to going back again this year!

Probably the worst eating experience i have had in a long time. They don't have soft tacos. Hard tacos crumbled into pieces upon first bite. Food was cold. Meat was absent all flavor. Will never return.

The food is really below average. I get the feeling it is probably frozen entrees they simply heat up. The seafood burrito was not even real seafood. It was that fake stuff you get in the grocery store. The sauces poured over everything were greasy...More
