Small place - Excellent Mexican Food

Small bar / restaurant in the heart of Treasure Island. They do have a waiting area in the back that has a bar and seating. We ordered the grilled burrito -nice twist on a favorite ... the guacamole was the best all of us had ever had --- you must try it as a starter. Food was hot & delicious... read more

The food and wait staff are outstanding. If you love Mexican food you won't be disappointed! Their shredded beef is delicious. I had the tostadas and hubby had enchiladas. The guacamole was amazing. Friendly and fun atmosphere.

This place was recommended by a friend months ago. We had tried to go there once before to have dinner, but there was over an hour wait. Last night they said 30-40 minutes so we waited, and I am so glad we did. This place is in a strip center on Gulf Blvd in Treasure Island, right next to Ricky... More

Mouthwatering, amazingly delicious food. If you can find parking, (don't get discouraged if you have to drive in a circle 10 times, I swear it's worth it), come before 5 if possible, you won't regret it!!! Daily drink specials. I had the Mexican steak with corn tortillas instead of flour and it was succulent!! Also tried a tamale, best damn... More

As a small business owner in the hotel/B&B industry, we are always looking for places that are authentic, local and give visitors a good feel of the area. VIP does the trick! Wet burritos and Mexican pizzas to die for!

Everything we had was especially well make especially the burritos. The taco salad was great , too. The golden margaritas were excellent. Be warned that this is a noisy, crowded beach bar, but that adds to the atmosphere!

The locals recommended this place, and my sister and I went here before reading any reviews. Let me tell you.,,AWESOME! Everything about our experience was top notch, from the service to the presentation to the delightful food and beverage. Try the seared tuna taco and Cajun fish taco. Don't skip the margarita! Thank you VIP Lounge. We will be back!

Ate here only once while on vacation, had decent Mexican menu of food, nothing outstanding but might have been what we ordered, although my husband ate the fish tacos and said they were outstanding. Great drinks

From the outside you can't tell how incredible this place is! They have an awesome patio out back with a single bar where the bartender made us DELICIOUS and STRONG Margaritas! We waited by the fire. When we were seated inside we had a delicious meal!! The guacamole was great and so were both of the dishes we ordered. I... More

We are never disappointed when we go to the VIP. Our dinner last night was superb!! Chips are served with homemade salsa, hot sauce and mole. The refried beans and rice are excellent and just thinking about the fish tacos and chilie rellenos makes us want to hop in the car to go back for more. The Wed. Special margaritas... More
