From Humble Beginnings on Water Street
VENTURAS BREAKS GROUND ON THEIR SECOND LOCATION
Yesterday was a big day for Venturas as they broke ground on their second location in Victoria. The new location will be next to Springwood Medical Plaza at 6602 Nursery Drive. This will be a welcome addition to the Main Street Corridor. Will this be the start of more development in this area? Let's hope so! Construction will begin this month with a projected completion date in the spring of 2022. The new location will have a full-service bar, drive-thru, and a covered patio area for diners. The Navarro location will remain open. There are also many other restaurants coming to Victoria in the near future including Burger King, McAlister's Deli, Dunkin' Donuts, Arby's, and Taco Bueno. La Terraza Mexican grill is also opening soon at Victoria Mall.
BEFORE WATER STREET
THE WATER STREET LOCATION:
Ventura's Tamales was born in 1985! For those of you that remember, the first Ventura location was on Water St, which just happened to be four blocks down from my childhood home. I spent many lunches with my grandma eating at the little seating area that was added around 1990. That was their first move into expanding their menu.
RIO GRANDE LOCATION:
This is the location that has really elevated Ventura's status and made it a staple of Victoria, Texas! All thanks in part to their Taco Tuesdays and Wednesdays! What started as a line snaking on to Navarro on Tuesdays and Wednesdays has turned into a daily occurrence. With their catering services, they have also created many special relationships with numerous families and been a part of so multiple special family events. It is awesome to see a hard-working family business continue to succeed and thrive. Don't forget to support your local businesses and SHOP LOCAL!
