A little bit about the VIP.....
It's hard to perfectly describe the VIP in just a sentence or two, so here we go!
Although the VIP has been here since the 1970s, (not exactly sure how long), the current owners have owned and operated it since 1993. Christine and her son Nick (me) are the lifeblood of this wonderful phenomenon we know as, THE VIP. Transformation to first person! BOOM!
I've been slinging tacos since high school, and even through college. My father Jerome Rapisardi saw a diamond in the rough when searching for restaurants in this area during the early 1990's. He was right. Unfortunately, he passed away in 1996 and my mother took the wheel to steer the ship. After graduating college in 2002 I returned home to devote all of my time and energy to the VIP. Now, my brother Johnny Rap has joined the team in the kitchen after working over ten years at the Don Cesar Beach Resort. It's a full-on family affair!
Many changes have been made.
We constantly evolve in order to make sure we are bringing you the best product possible on all levels.
Whenever we are capable of putting money back into the business to upgrade, we do.
Over the past 10 years we have swapped out old TV's for flat screens, tore out our entire bar countertop and replaced it, and completely renovated our back patio. And, we plan to do more and more.
Originally we offered only 3 meats: ground beef, shredded beef, and chicken. We have since added Carnitas Pork, Shrimp, Steak, and Mahi Mahi. We offer daily food specials, and if one gathers high popularity, we add it to the menu. If there is a particular beer or liquor that you enjoy, we will order it! We always try our best to cater to the tastes of our customers and their preferences.
