Tampa >Centro Cantina
Don't bother eating there. I love Mexican food, so when my husband and I went to Ybor, we thought we'd try it. nice open air bar with a good location. The service was ok, but the food was so terrible. I should have known when I was given plastic silverware. The margaritas tasted like sweet and sour mix and tons of ice. I ordered chicken nachos and they actually make the nachos right there at the bar, near the margarita mixers! They tasted just like 7-Eleven nachos. They have the warming pots, the chip holder. I got chips with the runny yellow "cheese", Hormel chili and pre-grilled chicken strips. The "cook" was eating while he was making my nachos. I suppose if you are at the bar there at 2am, this food might taste ok. But, i would say...do NOT go here to eat, unless you want to be grossed right out.
Dirty, plastic cups, disgusting area. Go here if you're 18, blind drunk & starving. Otherwise avoid. Dirty area, plastic cups, chips are out of a bag. Shots even come in mini plastic sample cups. AVOID!!!
Stick to beer and pre-made drinks..
The service was a little slow but otherwise very decent. I don't know who was bartending but the margaritas he made were HORRIBLE! It was like sipping sweet-and-sour. The atmosphere was not bad, but I wouldn't call it a spring break crowd.
Sadly, while the tequila is cheap, you get what you pay for.
A raucous spring-break-all-year crowd flocks to this lively tequila-centric watering hole in Cental Ybor for giant margaritas..
Named for a cantankerous (and poisonous) gila monster, this fun place is right at the pulsing heart of Ybor City. Pick your poison and let it rip. Think you can handle a 64-ounce margarita? Try your luck among these consummate 'rita professionals. Food runs toward snacks like dips and chips; the main draw is the rustic indoor-outdoor space and abounding good cheer.
