THROWBACK THURSDAY: Two of the Best Mexican Restaurant’s Victoria Has Seen
As I was driving down Port Lavaca Highway last week, I had a flashback of turning into the El Toro parking lot. Talk about some awesome memories and awesome Mexican Food. If you visited El Toro chances are you also ate at their sister restaurant of Siesta. Both restaurants were run by the Trevino family. Before we get to these two restaurants we also remember Casa Ramicos, Spanish Village, and DeLago. I know there were many more. Please add a Mexican Restaurant that you miss to our list on Facebook.
While Siesta was absolutely bomb, I always considered their sister restaurant El Toro just a little bit better when it came to food quality. The food was always hot and the portion size was very generous and the building itself had just a little more personality. From using the tiny bathrooms in the corner to using the parking lot that you entered in on Callis St. El Toro was definitely one of a kind.
This week we remember two of the best Mexican restaurants that Victoria has ever seen. Siesta Restaurant on Houston Highway and El Toro on Port Lavaca Highway. I mean, I still remember walking through the front door of Siesta and being greeted by Josie before ordering the McCall's Enchiladas I still consider the refried beans at Siesta to be the best ever to be served at a Mexican Restaurant. Do you remember Josie? What was your favorite menu item at Siesta? Let us know in the Facebook comments of this status.
