The Barrios family is planning a new restaurant, Viola’s Ventanas, which they hope to open in October. It will be located on Westover Hills Boulevard near SeaWorld and State Highway 151.
The family also has Los Barrios, 4223 Blanco Road, and La Hacienda de los Barrios, 18747 Redland Road.
The new restaurant’s name refers to Viola Barrios, the family matriarch who started the first restaurant.
Her daughter, Diana Barrios-Treviño, said the menu at Viola’s Ventanas (Spanish for windows) will be similar to the other two restaurants, which means plenty of Mexican comfort food favorites.
The site is currently being cleared, with a groundbreaking sometime in the near future, she said.
