Viva Villa offers unique barbecue tacos during rodeo run

Elder Eats  checks out revolutionary taco joint at Market Square 

David Elder paid a visit to Viva Villa Taqueria to check out their limited-time menu during the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo.

SAN ANTONIO – It’s all about barbecue on the menu at Viva Villa during the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo.

But it’s not your typical Texas barbecue that’s being served at the Market Square eatery, it’s Tex-Mex barbecue.

For example, a smoked brisket taco stuffed on a flour tortilla with guacamole and tomatillo habanero sauce will make your mouth water.

And if you like carnitas, entertain your taste buds to a smoked carnitas taco with guacamole, tomatillo habanero sauce, pickled onions and a chile torreado on the side.

If you can’t make it to Viva Villa during the rodeo, no problem. The tasty tacos will be offered during the entire month of February.
