Good Morning friends! In spirit of Margarita Monday….
VIP Mexican Lounge and Restaurant
10625 Gulf Blvd, Treasure Island, Florida
After running a half marathon in the Florida heat, I treated myself to some yummy and savory Mexican eats (and tequila). VIP Mexican Lounge and Restaurant is a local favorite in the St Pete Beach/Treasure Island area. Considering my affinity for strong margaritas and guacamole, I needed to check this establishment out! Nestled in a beach strip mall–VIP is a small and cozy restaurant with a fun atmosphere. I needed a little rest and hydration after my race, so we arrived around 3PM on a Sunday afternoon. It was a “slower” time of day so we easily found a high top table and enjoyed great and fast service! The word on the street is that during the dinner rush, it can take up to 2 hours to get a table–very popular and worth the wait.
This margarita is breathtaking– very strong and not sweet–just the way I like my men, I mean adult bevs. I do not prefer sour mix so the bartender created a “skinny” version of my favorite tequila adult beverage. Katie Lu approved.
As for the food, I really enjoyed the fish tacos and guacamole. Fresh ingredients and perfectly portioned for a hungry girl.
Mexican Pizza is the go-to dish and it was obviously too good–lots of cheesy deliciousness. The Mexican Pizza was a little heavy for my liking, but I’m glad I tried it!
