Great food and service

We enjoyed the food and drinks and the service was great. However, this is primarily a bar with lots of smokers and some colorful language. I would not recommend for young families.

My family and I eat here almost weekly now that we live close. However prior to moving to Florida we were more than happy to fly 1000 miles for vacation just to eat dinner here every night! :) VIP is an absolutely amazing restaurant / bar with wonderful people, it has the perfect beach atmosphere and phenomenal food!!!!

This is usually our first stop on vacation. There is almost always a wait. But they have a nice bar outside and big fans blowing. Huge burritos. The food is always great.

I go here every time I am in St. Pete. Some of the best Mexican around. The Mexican pizza is awesome. Also love the burritos. It's bit tiny inside, so you may have to wait for a table, but it's well worth it. Great location right on the beach.

By far the best Mexican on the beaches! Tiny, hole-in-the-wall place with wonderful food and drinks. The golden margs, chips and salsa are fabulous! No bad food on the menu- even the burger is amazing. We have lived in the area for 25 years and probably visit this gem once a week.

This rather small restaurant (Tight quarters inside more room outside) is a must for our family whenever we are in Treasure Island (once a year for the past 35 years). Very happy atmosphere and we find the food excellent especially the Wet Burritos. The Margaritas are the best in the area! Would highly recommend this experience.

First time dining with friend. Parking was very limited. I read an online review that said to park in the rear and enter through the back entrance. Past the outdoor seating there is a door that leads right to the kitchen area. The hostess greeted me and escorted me through kitchen to my table (that was a little weird). The... More

Loved drink and food prices. Great atmosphere as well. We were walking the beach and headed up for drinks and this was our second stop. Should have made it our first!

I had heard about this place for years, we finally stopped in to try it out and we were blown away. I highly suggest the pork enchiladas and the fish tacos. The pork is so tasty and full of flavor. The margaritas are great as well. Service could be better but its probably because its packed all the time. For... More

We were told this was the best mexican food in St. Pete area. Well, if that's true, St. Pete needs better Mexican food restaurants. Our food wasn't bad. It was just ok. The Steak for my tacobwas a little chewy and the spices used tasted a little odd to me. The salsa and chips were good and fresh. The aeevice... More
