Great Food, Great Fun

I have to say, the first time I tried to eat at this place with friends, we walked out after waiting for the hostess for a good few minutes and not being acknowledged at all. The second time, the same thing happened. This time, because the reviews of this place were so good and I was so hungry, I... read more

4 people husband myself daughter and grandson all had different entrees. Everyone was so good and plentiful, most people took home a doggie bag as generous portions. $5.00 Margarita's excellent .

The food at the VIP was outstanding! Big portions! Very small place, so you need to go early! We got there for dinner around 5:00, and that was a good time. We've been before at a later time, and the place was packed! The drinks are good there too! You will not leave hungry!

This is a lounge/bar with good Mexicana food. I would not eat here with children, as it feels like a bar and is very crowded. We had a bunch of stuff: scrum quesadillas, Mexican pizza, chips and queso, fish tacos, grilled Chicago steak burrito , and the ahi tuna roll. I was a little bit hesitant to eat the Ahi... More

Honestly, we went to VIP because of all the great reviews on their margaritas. We were not disappointed. The bartender put 3 ounces of Tequila and Triple Sec in each and, woe!!! All I remember was ordering a Wet Burrito with pork (excellent) and not finishing... The salsa was fresh pico de gallo and lots of it! It's a little... More

I apologize for your bad experience. I would like to be able to pinpoint when you came in so I can find the staff members responsible for neglecting you. We definitely have an unorthodox layout and seating that many are unaccustomed to and it's our job to try and help customers feel welcome and assist them with our system. We... More

We walked in the front door only to be hustled like applicants through the kitchen and out the back door. Not a single employee said a thing for any type of direction. Clean you act up people.

I'm originally from the southwest and it's hard to get decent Mexican food in other parts of the county. I visit Tampa/St. Pete once or twice a year and try to eat here every time I visit. I normally order the cheese enchilada and shredded beef tacos. My friends love the wet burritos.

Great authentic Mexican food and even better margarita's. Try the Millionaire Margarita. It's made with George Clooney's tequilla.
