we had lunch at VIP, the food and service was good, the facility itself not very impressive- very tight inside, dark, outdoor patio next to a parking lot and garbage bins

Have eaten here a few times. Appears to be a local favorite Seared tuna roll ($10) is sort of sushi in a flour tortilla. Mexican pizza ($9) was highly predictable glob of cheese and flavorless pork. Beer was reasonably cold and at least served in glassware - had a few decent craft beers, but my guess is they sell Bud... More

Not a kid friendly place but a great adult place . Food was great only downside is chips and salsa are not free being a Mexican restaurant I believe they should be complimentary other than that awesome.

I think this was my fourth visit to the VIP, and it was awesome just like the other times I've been here. The VIP is a small place with a full bar and its a bit crowded. Every time I've been here its been quite packed and yet I've never waited for a seat or waited very long for my... More

Our Shore Life's crew found ourselves out on a date night craving some good Mexican food..and we found it! The VIP Mexican Restaurant and Lounge is a small, easy to miss joint tucked in a small strip of shops on Gulf Boulevard...you have to look close to find it. We were seated rather quickly and proceeded to try the $3... More

Was a short walk from our hotel so we thought we would check it out. We ate outside. Very laid back feeling to it. Food was phenomenal along with great, friendly service. Lots of food for the money too. We would highly recommend it!

We are locals and go to VIP whenever we need great & inexpensive well prepared Mexican food. It's definitely American style...heavy on the portions, cheese and sour cream but mannnn, sometimes that hits the spot! The downfall is it's always busy, especially dinner time and service leaves a lot to be desired! But for cheap eats on the beach it's... More

I'm a New Mexican native and when we spoke with a local concerning Mexican fare I was skeptical because in the process she mentioned 'Tex-Mex' which is NOT Mexican nor authentic, in my opinion. She said this was the best spot for Mexican in St. Pete Beach, and I would have to say, probably some of the best I have... More
