Food lacked flavor. Salsa was runny tomato sauce. Guac needed salt. The chips were just ok. The 2 soft tacos were tasteless with the least amt chicken i've ever had in a taco. Think " My little sister made this". I don't taste any old family recipes here. The staff are nice. I guess it's cheap, but you get what... More

I'm the Mexican food freak in my family and this is where I choose to go every year on my birthday. It's small and simple but the customer service is excellent and the food delicious! I've never been disappointed.

Victoria's has become our family's favorite "go to" Mexican restaurant. Donald, Carmen and the entire staff make you feel at home--like family. Portions are large (not excessively so), food is delicious, service is the best. Margaritas are tasty and inexpensive. Highly recommended!

I tried it because it got good reviews on trip advisor. My meal started with a good bowl of meatball soup but the carne asada was below average

The chips and salsa are a must! The enchiladas are my favorite! Definitely worth the drive if you ask me.

Read the reviews and chose this restaurant over the others in Gilroy. Feels like a family run place which is probably good if you are a local. Tables too close together which made it feel crowded and the owners were out of the floor chatting and laughing with the regulars and so it was too loud. The chips and salsa... More

Family owned for 30 years and still great food. It was reasonably priced. We ordered meat ball soup with vegetables and if they have it the day you stop it is a must. Also ordered chicken and beef enchiladas with rice and beans. All excellent.
