About this business

Authenticity is the secret ingredient in Tortilleria La Mexicana #5's mouthwatering Mexican fare. The family-owned restaurant takes pride in crafting many of its items entirely from scratch, starting with the house-made tortillas, all the way down to the homemade ice creams, available in a dozen flavors including coconut, pistachio, and cheesecake. The menu covers all the favorites from cheese-covered enchiladas suizas, to sizzling platters of steak and seafood fajitas, but also includes unique items not typically seen on more Americanized menus, such as burritos stuffed with fried pork skin or cactus. The outdoor enclosure invites visitors to sample the cuisine and sip margaritas amid picturesque gardens, while a jukebox in the main dining area tempts patrons to serenade the restaurant with their favorite pop songs or tuba solos.
