Mexican Restaurants We Miss in Victoria
Today we just found out Ventura's is expanding and opening up a second location. It's great to see this local family-owned business continue to expand from humble beginnings on Water St. While Ventura's continues to expand, other fantastic Mexican restaurants have come and gone from Victoria. I thought it would be fun to remember some great Mexican food restaurants that I enjoyed while growing up. What Mexican restaurant brings back memories for you? Please add your response on the Facebook comments of this status.
I NEED HELP REMEMBERING THIS ONE:
I was a young child and remember going to eat at a little restaurant near Our Lady of Sorrows church. My mom says it was called Aleman's back in the day. However, I feel like it was called something else in the late '80s. Can anyone help on this one?
DEL LAGO MEXICAN RESTAURANT:
This was some fantastic Mexican food and the perfect place to eat after a fun night of dancing. Originally located at the corner of Navarro and Ash St. I remember getting that Del Lago Special.
SIESTA AND EL TORO MEXICAN RESTAURANTS:
Proudly owned by the Trevino family, these two restaurants became icons in Victoria. I personally rated El Toro just a little better than Siesta. However, they were both amazing. Just to have the McAll's enchiladas just one more time.
Located between Navarro and Laurent on Red River. So many memories of having dinner with my mom and grandma here.
PICO DE GALLO:
You would wait in the line that snaked on to Rio Grande. The PICO special was on another level. This location is now Mi Casita.
Another taco hotspot from back in the day. If you went to Stroman this was a very convenient option for breakfast tacos.
