I Wanna-Wanna again!
Celebrated the end of a great day with my son on his 21st birthday at the Wanna-Wanna. This is a fine little beach bar with everything you need... cold drinks, plenty of chairs, friendly bar-tenders, and a lively volleyball game going on right out back.
The bar is one of the few on the island where you can walk directly off the sand and right inside without touching a sidewalk.
Friday night they had a band playing a good mix of cover tunes, not too loud but still rocking!
If you go, be sure to have one (or two) of their signature drinks, The Wanna-Wanna! It's a fruit drink with lots of rum. Ask for a STRONG one... you won't need the second!
Food is standard bar fare, nothing bad.

So glad to have found this little place on the beach in SPI for lunch...had a great drink and delicious dish of Ceviche with crunchy good tortilla chips, all while sitting back looking at the waves!! It made for a very relaxing day in South Padre Island, TX!!

Small bar with a relaxed casual friendly feel. Great location right on the beach. We enjoyed a drink here and talking to some weekend residents.

Whatever you can say about Wanna Wanna, its location on the beach is super. On Friday nights they have Pelican West Band and its hard to beat this one. Not too friendly staff and you have to go get your own drinks at the bar but, other than that it is a great place to hang out.

not the friendliest staff. Burgers were just ok--nothing special. But mostly, it was the cats roaming all around the dining area that just was unappetizing. Several children were bothered (and I know most kids like cats) as the cats tried to get up around tables and all. Nice view here, but just didn't appeal to us.
