It All Started in 1978 for Venturas – Before Water St.
I saw this scrolling through Facebook last week and I thought it would be a great time to revisit a writeup I did about Ventruas last year! A historical look at Ventura's from someone who grew up in Victoria. In case you missed it, check it out below.
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!
THE NEW LOCATION:
The new location is slowly inching to towards opening its doors, It will have a full-service bar, drive-thru, and a covered patio area for diners. Opening information is coming soon!
