While shopping downtown we stopped in hear just to see what this place was. ! they have an outside walkup bar window which was great if you just wanted a drink. We went inside where the shade and fans blowing were great to get out of the sun. Sat at the bar, and the bartender was friendly and was actually... More

Place is relax. Their Coronarita or Caribarita is great. Big drink, low cost, decent flavor. What really does it for them though, is the sauce they use for their food. We ordered tacos and the pork and the meat were both flavorful and tender, but once you taste the sauce and add it, youll be in taco nirvana. They make... More

Dropped in here for lunch on a whim. What a great decision! This spot was a pleasant surprise. Who would've thought you could get very tasty Southwestern/Mexican food in the Virgin Islands?!? Very friendly staff; very good food (try the pork)! It was a hot day. Although there were seats inside we were advised by the waitress to sit outside... More

Great place! Not the cheapest- but well worth the price, fish tacos and you can't go wrong! Try the shark bite sauce if you're into spicy, it's great. The bandito margarita will bring sweat to your forehead as well, spicy stuff! Will absolutely come back on our next trip to St. Thomas!

Found this on trip advisor while traveling. It's in a great location and food was pretty good, but I wouldn't say excellent. Wait staff was very nice and chef came out to check on food. Nice touch!

This was probably one of the best Mexican places I've eaten at. The food was fresh and delicious and the prices were a nice relief from the steep prices at the hotels. Very reasonable!

We had 2 bowls (beef and pork) and 2 tacos platters (pork and fish) as well as a margarita and nachos. While the service is a little slow ("island paced"), the food is outstanding. While everything was great, the pulled pork really stood out as probably the best of the items we tried. Excellent texture and flavor in very lean... More

This place is like a piece of Mexico in the Caribbean. Only downside is they didn't have jarritos. But for the rest, it was excellent. The taquitos are the best and the quesadillas aren't far behind. The location is good and the athmosphere is excellent.
