Readers of the Victoria Advocate are making the vote count. The PumpHouse Riverside Restaurant and Bar was voted best place for a business lunch in the 2013 Best of the Best competition.

"We recognize that time is everything for the lunch crowd, so we hired an amazing daytime chef, and she, everyday, comes up with two lunches that are home cooked meals," said owner Dennis Patillo.

Patillo said you can get a good lunch at The PumpHouse for about $10, almost the same amount for fast food, he said.

"We also have a really imaginative lunch," Patillo said.

He said the servers work together to make sure the lunch crowd can get in and get back to work.
