(EMAILWIRE.COM, January 05, 2016) Houston, TX — The iconic Villa Arcos is not relocating and will remain nestled in its long-time home in Houstonâ€™s 2nd Ward. Owned by the late Yolanda Black Navarro and son Christian Navarro, Villa Arcos will continue to delight Houstonians with its award-winning breakfast tacos and other beloved recipes. For 38 years their restaurant has been a staple of the community, and they look forward to serving their loyal customers and friends for many years to come.
Villa Arcos – Late Owner, Yolanda Black Navarro
A recent post on social media by Villa Arcos current operator would lead some to believe that the famed restaurant is relocating, changing names, and even adding BBQ to its longstanding menu. None of these claims are true. In fact, they are completely false. Effective February 2, 2016, Yolanda Black Navarroâ€™s son, Christian Navarro, will retain control of Villa Arcos. This means the same delicious breakfast tacos, cooked by some of the original chefs, in the same building, will continue!
â€œI first entered Villa Arcos with my mother and grandmother in 1977. I served many Villa Arcos patrons personally for over 10 years. I managed Villa Arcos on behalf of my mother from 1999 to 2009. I look forward to greeting my Villa Arcos friends and family at 3009 Navigation Blvd with my aunt Gina Duran on February 2, 2016. Villa Arcosâ€™ tradition of a family-run restaurant in the heart of 2nd Ward shall continue.â€ – Christian Navarro
Christian looks forward to keeping Houston East Endâ€™s treasure alive and thriving for many years to come!
