After scientists revealed UFOs were actually full-grown tortillas, people everywhere filled swimming pools with guac and beans to catch and dissect the floury creatures. Nab a tender, baby disc with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of eclectic Mexican and American fare at Tortilla Flats.
Tortilla Flats tempts tasters with an alluring melting pot of classic Mexican eats, peppered with hints of Cajun and southwestern cuisine. Lunch and dinner patrons can sup on an eclectic array of quesadillas, sandwiches, salads, classic Mexican combination plates, and entrees. Debate the anatomical impossibilities of an order of wild boar wings (plain, buffalo, or barbecue style, $8.99) before moving on to heartier fare such as the cowboy steak tips ($14.99) or the habanero mac 'n' cheese ($13.99). Combinations of tacos, burritos, tamales, and enchiladas tantalize statisticians with a bevy of possibilities ($7.95–$9.95), and blackened catfish Naw Leens ($13.95) and Bayou Crawdad cakes ($9.50) transport taste buds to the murky environs of Cajun country, replete with Zydeco-blasting tooth accordions.
Tortilla Flats' ample drink list provides lubrication for any plate. There are more than 35 tequilas, a plethora of imported Mexican cervezas, 60 oz. pitchers of refreshing margaritas, and house sangria. After knocking back a few, lit-lovers can discuss their ideas for the next great American novel about fly fishing while gazing upon the upper room's Steinbeck portrait, a reproduction of an original featured in the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery.
- On a recent Friday night, it was living up to its reputation as a feel-good neighborhood hang-out, with a mixed-age East Side crowd who were eating, drinking, and catching up. – Johnette Rodriguez, Providence Phoenix
- Painted Desert quesadillas or Barbeque chicken nachos are great, filling and cheap items for those who like BBQ flavor. The fajitas are filling and very tasty, and you can satisfy extreme hunger, the Incredible Burrito is great. – lilym26, TripAdvisor
- This is Margarita Ville - the best by far! – A TripAdvisor reviewer on Facebook
