“Can't wait to go again!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

Thank Diners, Drive-ins and Dives for this gem. Doesn't look like much from the outside, would probably drive right past without a second glance if you were uninformed. Not much seating, so plan ahead with reservations, or enjoy a beverage or two while you wait. Our server was excellent, willing to make a couple recommendations for food choices that were outstanding. We will be back.

“Wow, wow, wow!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

Guy Fierra got this one right, Victor's is AWESOME. Service was outstanding, food was wonderful, atmosphere was great!!! Yuca Fritas appetizer was one of, if not the best, preparations of Yuca I have had. Our party tried everything that DDD tried and we loved it all (each item is singled out on the menu). It's a small busy restaurant, so make a reservation. They will honor it. This place will be a go to from now on. Nicely done staff!!!

“Amazing Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We tried out Victor's 1959 Cafe for the first time and absolutely loved it. Waiting in line for brunch was worth it, as the food and service was great. Fun atmosphere, quality food, and friendly service. We can't wait to bring friends and family another time.

“Good comfort food”

Overall, a good home style Cuban restaurant. The grafiti on the walls was cute for awhile, now it is getting tired.

“Funky!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Great breakfast--Ranchero Cubano--corn tortillas topped with cheddar, over-easy eggs, black beans, and spicy Creole sauce. Filling and delicious! An easy, relaxed, fun and funky setting.
