“Mexican Food”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

We ate here last night. The food was good. Their salsa was as advertised chunky and excellent. The wet burrito is very good. The place is small there a few seats out back, but most are inside near or at the bar. You will have to wait even to stayed at the bar. The gold margaritas were good and strong! Overall it was a good experience. Parking is a bit of an issue, but there is additional parking outback which is not advertised. As Mexican cuisine goes threes was a little better than average, although I am partial to Emiliano's in Pittsburgh!

“A Bit to Loud”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

One of my Favorite Places to get a Burrito but the Music is WAY to Loud! We ate there this oats weekend and it was so loud we couldn't even have a conversation because we couldn't hear each other. Also, the seating arrangements are AWEFUL. A table for 2 up against the wall with barely room to move especially if there are people sitting at the Bar which us always! I just say though, the employees are Incredibly Nice and the Service is Great!!!

“Such good food, but bad seating...”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Another one of my favorite places...been going for years and years. Best mexican hang out around. The only issue is getting a place to eat. Unless you go around lunchtime, consider yourself squished! Tiny tables for two against the wall with barely enough room to walk by if people are at the bar...and trust me...people are ALWAYS at the bar. This is such a great place...just wish they had more tables than the few in the back. If you can...GO!

“Best of the Beach”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

I have been going to VIP for years with my family and friends and it never gets old. Best (huge) burger on the beach, great tacos, burritos etc. Love the house margaritas and the beers are always cold. You can't go wrong at the VIP trust me!
