“WOW... Oklahoma impressed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

I'm an Okie and even I was impressed with how good this food was!! Our waiter was singing and checked on us in timely manner! I didn't try guacamole, which i love, because its always been nasty in restaurants, bit now I wish I would have... But I will get to AND SOON! Thanks for making my meal enjoyable!

“The Best Mexican in Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Try the Tres Banderas. Plenty of tasty food with all the satisfying flavors. I would go more often if it would open a restaurant in downtown St. Pete. Hint hint.

“Great salsa and chips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

hahaha, The food is great here. But seriously good salsa and chips, too. Bartenders are awesome, and the selection of Mexican food is perfect.
