Absolute to make reservation in advance. Try Margarita and nacho's for appetizer. Philly Steak, burrito's are fine. Best choice are the Fajita's with steak. Quality value ratio is great. Attracts many visitors including locals so please book table in advance. Outside is perfect (in event not no rain), inside more like a bar.

If looking for a quaint, charming family Mexican restaurant, don't fool yourself, this is a local bar that happens to serve good Mexican grub. Food = 8.5. Ambience = 2. Music volume = 10. Very friendly staff = 10. Courteous and responsive service = 9. Overall enjoyed the food and experience.

My husband and I are locals and immediately knew VIP would be one of our favorite regular spots on the beach after our first time. We eat here at least monthly and absolutely love the "no frills" atmosphere - whether you want to have a fun date night or just got off the beach you're in for a good time.... More

I have tried VIP's several times. I want to like it. It is just not possible. The service is awful. Snarky and slow is the kindest thing I can say. So chaotic it is not a place to sit and relax. Since it is the only "Mexican" in the area it is very busy. Food lacks not only authenticity but... More

We were told it would be 45min to an hour for a table- ended up being closer to an hour an a half. Though we had prompt and friendly service, we waited another hour for our food to arrive. During the long wait, I had too much time to observe the surroundings. We sat outside on the patio behind the... More

did some research on local Mexican food. This little gem is hidden in a small strip mall. Its a local "dive" with AMAZING FOOD AND DRINKS!!! If your in a hurry or don't like cramped spaces....find another place. If your willing to put your name on a list and be patient like the other 50 people...its amazing. Wish the rating... More

Met a dear friend here to catch up and we had a great time. I always forget how crowded it is for dinner, but they were able to seat is in 15 minutes. Long enough to find out that a raspberry margarita was really good, though really sweet. The bartender came out to get our drink orders within a moment... More
