Tortillas Restaurant Review

26 04 2008

Tuesday night is party night at Tortillas restaurant in Willow Grove, PA. I recently went with a few of my friends and we swore to make it a regular event.

The restaurant is close to almost nothing, except the Willow Grove Mall, and you could zip right by it in your car and realize that you passed it a couple of miles down York Road, but it’s worth the trip to find it.

But on a Tuesday night–$1 Taco Night to be exact–reservations are necessary in this bustling, noisy BYO decorated with so much color and chachky it doesn’t seem to be contained within the tiny space.

Someone brought tequila and another one of us brought beer and right away pitchers of margaritas appeared at either end of our table. Baskets of chips were served next and we hit the all-you-can-eat salsa bar to load up.

The menu is huge, but we focused on the tacos. Included in the $1 deal are:

Made with homemade soft tortillas (flour or corn).Shredded Beef or Chicken $2.45
Crispy or soft tortillas filled with meat, cheese, lettuce, and salsa.
Carne Asada, Grilled Chicken or Carnitas

Soft tortilla (flour or corn) filled with meat and Pico de Gallo
Guacamolé or Bean $2.45
Soft tortilla (flour or corn) with cheese, lettuce, and salsa.
Ensenada Fish $2.95
Soft tortilla filled with crispy fried fish with cabbage, sour cream, and tomatillo sauce.

I chose the shredded beef, shredded chicken, and fish, and they were all mouthwatering. Granted, they may have skimped on the quantity of ingredients due to the special, but I could only eat half of each one and I was full. No one at the table could eat more than three tacos.

The service was slightly off, but who could blame a waitress knowing that her tip waiting on a table of 9 would probably not be worth it. But the atmosphere was so alive and exciting, it didn’t matter that it took us a little bit longer than normal to get our food.

The best part of the evening is when the bill came. After everything was added up, we each only had to pay $8. This is a restaurant that I will return to frequently, especially on Tuesday nights.
