“Nice little spot”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

We stumbled on this place during one of many golf cart trips around the island. We liked the way it's hidden from the road, has a cozy outdoor tiki hut bar kind of feel, with it's own little beach where I'm sure many a drunken near-drowning or sleep off a hangover moment has occurred. I can see this place rocking after dark. We were there during the afternoon and it was pretty low-key, but pleasant.

“We can never leave on a Saturday...because of Sunday Ribs!!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We always head to the Soggy Peso on Sundays so we can enjoy some of the best ribs you will ever have!! Be sure to arrive early or you could miss out. We have been there around 6:30 and had the last of the ribs. The bar area can get a bit crowded, but there is plenty of seating around the pool area. One of the best margaritas I've had on the island was at Soggy Peso. Be sure you take Pesos, because they exchange USD at 1 USD to 10 Pesos. So grab some Pesos and head to the Soggy Peso!

“You are a stranger here only once!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

Stopped on a Monday for the lobster tacos. The bar was full so we had to take a table nearby. We were welcomed warmly by all staff members (Freddy and Jo Jo). Started with the guacamole, the best I ever tasted. We followed that up with the tacos, served with two sauces a garlic oil and a spicy mayo number. Tacos were great, could not finish all four.

This is how every business should be run. We were comfortable from start to finish. Thank you soggy peso for a memorable night on this beautiful island. We will be back later in the week to try for a bar stool!
