La Mesa Tortillas

3923 E. Pima St. • 3684 W. Orange Grove • 7823 E. Broadway Blvd.

From the outside and the name, one might assume that La Mesa Tortillas is just another tortilleria (tortilla factory), but it’s also a restaurant where you can get full plates and bulk food to go.

Their tortillas are special because they use no preservatives or additives, and they ship. They also make memorable tamales that people are said to crave upon moving away from the Old Pueblo.

La Mesa has a location on the east side and a central site as well.
