First time, Great time

We are snowbirds down here for our 11th season and always love to discover new places to eat. Got invited to VIP by a local and we were impressed. I have to say I'm a bit discouraged by reading some of the other reviews. The local girl we were with always goes to VIP and we're glad she took... read more

VIP is a small, energetic bar/restaurant with BIG tastes! The menu items are all freshly prepared, starting with their homemade salsa, and pop with flavor and flair. The Wet Burrito is my favorite, in close contention with the Steak Fajitas. The half order of Nachos is more than enough for two people to share, and well layered throughout - a... More

I'm a local and have been to VIP several times. Two nights ago it was raining. I finished my drink while waiting near the front door for family to arrive. So I requested another drink from the hairy gentleman working the bar. He refused and told me to go out back outside in the rain for my drink. There were... More

This Mexican resteraunt was right across from the hotel. Food was expensive and didn't taste authentic. The servers walked around in booty shorts and showed a lot of cleavage, you could tell they were begging for tips at the bar. Wouldn't go back.

I stop by the VIP whenever I'm in town. Last night I wasn't in the mood for Mexican food, so I ordered a bacon cheeseburger from there 'gringo' part of the menu. Wow! A whopping 14oz. burger arrived, cooked to perfection. It's a GIANT burger! Great job VIP!

Had the chicken burrito and it was outstanding, full of chicken with great flavor. Their salsa is also excellent with chips, a great choice.

I've been visiting T.I for over 20 years now and didn't know this place existed till I found a review on trip advisor. From the front you wouldn't know it was open but open the door, walk in, then through the kitchen and take a pew outside for a cold one! Or two! You may have to wait. but boy... More

Went to VIP based upon a recommendation from another restaurant...if you can believe it! The food was very tasty without being overly spicy! The beer is cold...the inside bar area is very loud but the outside seating area in back is quite nice! The staff is polite and friendly and the food arrives quickly and well prepared.
