Where the Men Are Guapo 4/29/2006

"Eey, Guapo... you wan' that for here or to go?" Yes, here, I'm guapo. At Victor's, every guy is guapo, and every girl guapa - and why not? In here, life is beautiful! The girls are beautiful! Even the orchestra is beautiful! Practically a South Beach institution, Victor's serves up better-than-average tacos, burritos and quesadillas. The flavor of the pork is possibly the best in the neighborhood: the carnitas, al pastor and chile verde are all top notch and distinctly flavored. Considering that they have Mexico au Parc, Los Socios/3rd Street Grill, Tres Agaves and an on-again/off-again taco truck parked in the Limn parking lot to compete with, the fact that Victor's is always packed while Los Socios/3rd Street Grill has had to cancel their dinner service is a testament to them delivering what the neighborhood wants. Plus, they're open on Saturdays, something our neighborhood desperately needs. A super burrito or quesadilla runs between $5 and $5.50 - and with a Jarritos fruit or a mexican Coke or Squirt (grapefruit) soda thrown in, we're still well shy of $8. If I could do half stars, Victor's would get 3.5 stars. Compared to other taquerias, the food is 4.5 stars. I would knock a half point off for not being open for dinner, and another half point for their tortillas, which are prone to tearing when stuffed full with burrito goodness. However, since I can't do half stars, the staff's warm personality and fast service are enough to have me round them up to a full four stars. Ok, Guapo? more
