The Taco Villa in Lubbocks, Texas, is a tourist attraction.
It is a Mexican restaurant and a taco stand, complete with a full bar.
There are also a few Mexican restaurants on the property, and one of them is called “The Taco Villa.”
We met this tourist on Saturday, and she told us all about it.
She was visiting her mother in the nearby town of Lubbocking, Texas.
When we met her, she was dressed in a red shirt, red shorts and red socks.
We asked her if she had heard of the Taco Villas.
She had not.
She said she’d been in Mexico and Mexico was very different.
“We can’t eat Mexican food,” she said.
She and her mother decided to stay home.
She got an Uber to get to the hotel and booked a room with the owner of the taco stand.
“It was so cheap I just wanted to eat something,” she recalled.
The owner told us she knew she’d need to make some changes.
“He said, ‘It’s too big for my family.
We can’t stay.’
That’s when I decided I’d better go and do something,” the woman said.
“I started driving.
I drove straight through town, all the Mexican restaurants, I’m driving past, the Taco Villas, and I’m like, ‘What are these?
What is this?’
It was just crazy.”
We asked the woman if she thought her mother had gone there on a mission to kill herself.
“No, she didn’t,” she replied.
“She didn’t mean to do it.
But she didn, so I decided to go, because I knew she didn and I knew how she felt about it.”
She added, “I know she was there for a reason.”
The owner of The Taco Villa told us he was in the process of cleaning the restaurant.
He had the manager and two employees put on gloves.
They were wearing gloves to protect themselves from the taco’s flames.
“My hands were burning,” he said.
It was a very hot day, so the owner said they started taking out the windows and putting the windows up.
They told the workers to put on protective gear, and they were wearing masks.
He said he had people in the restaurant with them to help the workers put the windows on.
It’s unclear if the employee was wearing a mask at the time, or if he was wearing gloves.
The workers were able to open the door, and he said the restaurant was completely destroyed.
They called 911.
The restaurant owner told police they were not at fault.
The owners’ attorney said the owner and employees were at fault for the blaze.
They are being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
A Taco Villa spokesperson said, “The owner of Taco Villa is a family man who is devastated at the loss of his family member and for the way he was treated during this horrific event.
We are grateful to law enforcement for their assistance in the investigation and are confident that our staff and employees will be held accountable.”
She said the incident was investigated by the Texas Rangers, and the owner is cooperating with the investigation.
We reached out to the owners attorney for comment and will update this post when we hear back.
