Monday supper. Lobster tacos today's special. Had to wait an hour for food, which was very 'picante' - in fact I couldn't eat it at all. Staff were very friendly and gave us a free beer for having to wait. Dark and claustrophobic, apparently a local North American hang-out with a very clique-y feel. I wouldn't go again.

Great barbecue on Sundays. Cold drinks, good food, A little closed in. Friendly staff. Only go for the barbecue if you are very hungry or plan to take some home, portions are large. Ribs fall off of the bone they are so tender.

without a doubt, this little hidden gem is the best neighborhood bar around. The margaritas are the best on the island and the service is just as good. Can't wait to return here.

This is a fun restaurant. The ribs on Sunday are excellent, as was the rather unusual Thanksgiving dinner.

Stopped by the Soggy Peso twice on a recent trip to Isla. The first time we went for a quick lunch and drink. They only offer one meal choice per day - that day it was fajitas. We ordered the combo chicken and steak. Comes with guac, pretty standard fajitas but they were tasty and there was plenty to share for two adults.
The next trip in we had "cheeseburgers in paradise". Not the best burger I've ever had, but again, perfect meal to share with another person and was cheap. Drinks were good, bartenders were fun and entertaining to the American crowd - it was nice to speak English with other patrons. Seems to be kind of a regular joint to US visitors.'
Enjoyed the outside feel to the bar, the beach area down the steps and beach dogs that came up for leftovers.
