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!

Ambiance: Victoria's has a very straightforward, basic dining room, clean and simple. Somewhat tight spring between tables, but not a real issue. A good place to eat, not intended for an intimate evening. Staff: It's all family here. And that really works, it feels like the entire family likes working there, they all help out every table, and you can... More

Love the owners and wait staff. I like simple Mexican food. I always get enchiladas with extra onions...never disappointed. Ample menu with lots of combinations.

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.

Hope to be back soon. I had a Taco salad with chicken and my friend had a shrimp fajita she said was the best she's... More

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.

I have eaten here since I was a little girl. That is many, many years. They are consistently good. Great salsa. Elvis is even in the building. Ha-ha ( owner is a Elvis impersonator) When I am not feeling good, I have to have their chicken soup. So yummy! Michaels enchiladas are yummy with green sauce and chicken. My dad... More
