Valerie’s has been here for two years and I found it by accident today. Best accident ever! 192 is always on the go and it’s always a traffic nightmare. While looking for a new place with @xobejm we found this beautiful gem of a restaurant.
Now I have always said, being Guatemalan and living in Kissimmee has made me a Mexican restaurant pro. While living in Chicago my parents always took me to Mexican restaurants. So, I have become the Mexican dining connoisseur. Kissimmee has now had more Mexican restaurants come into town.
Valerie’s is a restaurant and bakery. As you can tell by the picture they have a bit of everything. Some groceries can be picked up while getting your baked needs on this side and getting an authentic home cooked meal on the other side.
Don’t be fooled by her size. Valerie’s packs a punch when it comes to their menu selection. Carmen the woman behind all the magic makes her meals truly authentic, Guanajato Style (Insert Gangnam Style dance). While Ramon the new owner greets the customers who come in with a smile. Now, lets get to the FOOD stuff!!!
Steak taco to start with. My “Go To” dish at any Mexican restaurant. Nice bite six steak taco with cilantro and onions. Also, a side of grilled onions and lime. Perfect combination.
Steak Torta. With the works, tomato, lettuce, mayo, beans, etc. @xobejm and I like the bread extra toasty. It gives the sandwich more crunch. I chose all my dishes with steak today. I was feeling carnivorous. Great flavor in this sandwich. Carmen was happy to hear that we liked her sandwich. She emphasized that the secret ingredient is that she cooks with love.
Chilaquiles Rojos with rice, beans, and salad with avocado. The Guanajato style comes with steak, cilantro, onions, and a spicy kick that made my nose run for about thirty minutes. AMAZING!! So much kick I should have bought shin guards.
Carne Asada with rice, beans, side salad, and avocado. The meals also come with corn tortillas that are nice and hot when served to the table. Once again, great flavor! The meat was nice and tender.
Steak Gordita. I would say the picture says it all. The presentation alone is amazing. I couldn’t stop looking at it. Carmen went above and beyond on this one. She truly is an artist. Filled it to the gills with complete yumminess. This is not your regular gordita. Valerie’s has taken this gordita to a whole new level. DELICIOUS!
Baby Girl and I were too full to even see the dessert menu. We will be going again soon. Guaranteed! If the secret ingredient is love than I will be back several more times for it. Fantastic place. I highly recommend it. Great prices, great people, and amazing food. You can’t go wrong at Valerie’s!
Ramon y Carmen. Muchísimas Gracias for ser tan amables conmigo y mi nena. Nos encanta comer, pero más que todo nos encanta las personas que son cariñosas. Se nota que tienen mucho orgullo en lo que hacen. Los felicito por tener un negocio realmente Mejicano en Kissimmee. Ya saben que nos veremos muy pronto.
Baby Girl APROBADO!!!
