Mexican
Tortaria, in the Union Square neighborhood of New York City, crafts specialty Mexican sandwiches and celebrates tequila cocktails in its bright and modern eatery outfitted with retro knickknacks. Tortaria’s main bill of fare is tortas, traditional Mexican sandwiches on fresh baked, ciabatta-like bread. Some of the most popular varieties include the slow-roasted pulled pork with Chihuahua cheese, avocado, roasted chipotle peppers and pickled onion, the panko-crusted chicken Milanesa with spicy black beans, Oaxaca cheese, chipotle mayo and cilantro and the torta beef burger, piled high with mozzarella, piloncillo tomatoes, jalapenos and chipotle mayo. Rolled and deep fried taquitos are the other staple at Tortaria, with flavors such as carne asada with tomatillo salsa and mahi lime tacos with citrus jalapeno remoulade being crisp and fresh choices.

For a unique house cocktail, enjoy the house margarita with Conquistador tequila, triple sec, agave, and lime.

Brunch deal is unbeatable!! Don’t go if you are looking for a “party brunch” because it is pretty quiet and calm.

Awesome casual Mexican restaurant. The chips and guacamole, shrimp enchiladas and fried ice cream were all delicious. My server Lina was awesome - so sweet and very efficient. I will definitely go back.

I made a reservation for Monday-Rita for a table of 4 and we had a fabulous time with outside seating. The setup is nice and social distancing measures with dividers were in place to make us feel safe. The service was great and the ambiance was nice. The food was good, especially the guacamole and crispy chicken tacos. Overall, great location for dinner and happy hour.

I’ve been wanting to try this place but I must say I was a bit disappointed by the food and the service. While I understand it’s covid time I have gotten better in other places. Super sad I won’t be going back.

Got the brunch special! Great value and cocktails didn’t taste watered down, the way they do when they’re included in a deal. Food was really good, but wish we’d been served plates instead of those disposable paper boat things. They were really flimsy and it was difficult to eat out of without dropping food all over the table.

I would recommend this place for a cheap, no frills brunch. Definitely harder to find in NYC, so over all 5 stars for the value, but nothing amazing.

I come here all the time with my best friend and wanted to take my boyfriend here for valentines weekend. The service was the worst I have ever seen :( It took us like 5 minutes to flag down our waitress to order. We didn’t receive all of our food and I didn’t receive my drink. The waitress didn’t come to check on us so I had to flag down a random waiter. Then the drink came and the food still didn’t come that was missing so I had to flag down another person. Once we finished, it was another mission to ask for the bill. I was very disappointed because I love the food so much and wanted to show my boyfriend one of my favorite restaurants but it was not impressive that night. It was also ice cold as if we were outside because the doors were wide open. However, food was delicious as usual.

Waited 10 min to be seated for a reservation we had, then after being seated we waited 25 min before leaving as the waitress never came back for our drink or food order. Very odd considering it was only 5pm with a handful of tables seated on a slow night. Extremely disappointed and will not be back.

Great food and margs, sat 30 minutes after reservation and poor service. But in time of Covid, I understand it’s hard to keep staff on so I wouldn’t let this deter me from going back.
