“A fun place”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

We enjoyed the vibe here, it's a fun spot to have a cold one with friends with all its eclectic decor of hats, etc and funny signs. A warning don't have too many margarita's, they'll put you to bed! Also if your hungry don't plan on eating here. We were there on cheeseburger in paradise day and waited 2 hours, which ruined my experience and I walked out leaving the food sitting there. A word of advice, no food is worth a 2 hour wait. Also that day our waiter was a inatentive and somewhat rude, unlike our previous experience where all was great.

“Great Little Spot”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

We had drinks at the Soggy Peso and found it to be a very friendly place. The owner stopped by our table and chatted with us for quite a while. The drinks were the strongest we had on Isla but the menu wasn't gluten free friendly so we couldn't stay for dinner.

“Not a restaurant, only bar food”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

Soggy Peso is a bar. Lots of Americans drinking beer, talking roundly, listening to country music and having wings or cheeseburger or whatever the dish of the day is. Nothing great, nice if this is what you want. They have a nice water view, all out of the way.

we always make it a point to go to the soggy peso when on the island, have had the ribs a couple times,and, not super impressed, I remember they were good last time, not this time, and quite expensive compared to what we get in the states actually, and bbq sauce could have been home made, not bottled, easy to do. BUT.... margaritas are great, stong , so don't over do it, beer is super cold, bar tenders are a blast!

“Bar where everybody knows your name”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We love this bar and visited it several times while we were in Isla. The cheeseburger was the best we both have ever eaten. The lobster taco's were 2nd best and the ribs were last. The drinks were very good the first couple of visits then tasted funny the last couple of visits so I switched my drink. All was good after that. Freddie, Daniel, Goosie, are so much fun. It is so welcoming when you walk in and they remember your name. I love this place!!
