There’s a new party adventure on the Strip, something big and loud and full of fun. It’s hard to miss Señor Frog’s, awash in red, green and yellow overlooking the iconic Sirens Cove at Treasure Island. Whether it’s on the lively-yet-relaxing patio overlooking TI’s pirate ships and the traffic along Las Vegas Boulevard, or at the rowdy bar and dining room just off the main casino floor, there’s always something exciting (and probably a little bit silly) going on here.
Señor Frog’s is known as the place to party in the many vacation destinations it calls home, from the Bahamas and Puerto Rico to Cancún and Hawaii. It only makes sense that Las Vegas has a Frog to call its own. The familiar beach bum vibe is consistent across the experience, from the menu and the service to the funny decorative elements. Where else can you sit at an outdoor bar and look up to see the faux undersides of vacationers tube-floating in a make-believe pool?
The fun begins at the bar, and Señor Frog’s has plenty of said bar and plenty of cocktails to whet your appetite. A wide selection of tequila provides the foundation for the popular margaritas, and there are Caribbean-inspired drinks, too, like the Bahama Mama and mojito. The fruity, potent Frog’s Punch is the house specialty, and if you spend enough time at the bar, a Royal Flush or Cucaracha shot will be mandatory.
The bright colors, delicious drinks and charming antics of the staff may overshadow a big, tasty menu of favorites from all over. Appetizers are bar food staples: spicy chicken wings, mountainous nachos or crispy, fried mozzarella sticks. It’s easy to assume Mexican cuisine to be the specialty at Señor Frog’s, and a platter of still-sizzling chicken, beef, shrimp or vegetable fajitas is always a safe bet. But there’s much more on the menu beyond hearty enchiladas, carne asada tacos or the deep-fried burrito known as the chimichanga.
There are garden-fresh salads, including a huge Cobb salad stacked with mounds of grilled chicken, crispy bacon and chunky blue cheese. There are silky soups, pasta dishes, barbecued ribs, shrimp or chicken, and a variety of steaks, wraps, burgers and sandwiches. (The blackened chicken burger is a particular spicy treat.) And then there are signature seafood items that are tailored to fit the casual atmosphere while elevating the meal. Baja tacos, with lightly battered-and-fried fish or shrimp and crunchy cabbage coleslaw, are perfect for sharing. You can opt for traditional fish and chips or coconut-crusted shrimp, or choose a lighter path with grilled mahi mahi or a lobster tail. Something for everyone? Señor Frog’s aims to please.
Your dessert options are plentiful as well, but you must make a decision. On one hand, you can cap off your experience with a delight such as the molten brownie, rich and chocolaty with ice cream and whipped cream, or the sweet-and-tart, tequila-infused key lime pie. On the other hand, you can keep the party rolling with a spiked ice cream concoction like a mudslide, Nutty Colada or Banana Frog. At Señor Frog’s, the fun only ends when you’ve had enough.
