“WOW... Oklahoma impressed”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

I'm an Okie and even I was impressed with how good this food was!! Our waiter was singing and checked on us in timely manner! I didn't try guacamole, which i love, because its always been nasty in restaurants, bit now I wish I would have... But I will get to AND SOON! Thanks for making my meal enjoyable!

“The Best Mexican in Town”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Try the Tres Banderas. Plenty of tasty food with all the satisfying flavors. I would go more often if it would open a restaurant in downtown St. Pete. Hint hint.

“Great salsa and chips”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

hahaha, The food is great here. But seriously good salsa and chips, too. Bartenders are awesome, and the selection of Mexican food is perfect.
