“The ribs are everything you heard about and more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

We stopped at the Soggy Peso just before leaving the island so we were a little sad to say the least. This quirky spot is a lot of fun, the food is truly fabulous and you won't be "upsold" on quantities you can't possibly eat -- the waiter looked at me and reduced my order. MUCH appreciated, I was stuffed and didn't finish the ribs I did order, such a shame...the beer was MEGA cold and the view is great! The Soggy Peso is a Steve Broin recommendation too -- he knows!

“Fun bar and amazing margaritas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

We never ate at the Soggy Peso but it's a fun tiki style bar. It's mainly ex-pats and visitors. Freddy the bartender is a riot and all the bartenders make the experience a ton of fun and they pour a mean margarita. I understand they have a great Sunday BBQ though we never made it for that.
