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.

    really bad service, got ignored for about 20 minutes waiting for our server to come but we ended up having to flag someone down. they never looked our way, so even getting their attention took a while. order was wrong and insanely overpriced compared to the last time we were there. just really disappointed.

    We went for Cinco de Mayo and good thing we made a reservation. When we arrived, the wait for a table was over an hour. The restaurant was packed and very energetic. Not sure if they added tables specifically for that day, but we were packed in, but not right on top of each other. We ordered and our food was to us very quickly. My friend's beer was not cold and a bit flat and they quickly changed it out for her. Our waiter was very good and the entire staff was very attentive. Because they were so busy, our waiter was slammed, but other servers stepped in to help us when needed. The chicken flautas were great! Definitely add the smoky chipotle sauce to it. We also got the platanos and they were perfectly cooked. So many things on the menu I want to try, so we will definitely be going back!

    The food was not good at all. I had a breakfast platter and it was cold and unseasoned not to mention the service was bad as well. The worst part was that it was freezing in there, like the heater wasn’t on at all.

    The food is great and reasonably prized. The tequila and mezcal cocktail lists are extensive with great options and all delicious. The service is slow, bordering on inattentive, but if you're looking for a leisurely evening out (as I was), it's not a problem. Just know what you're getting into!

    I’ve been here a few times and I always enjoy it. The food is good, well priced, and the staff is friendly and helpful. It was a Friday night and we were in one of the outside tables so of course it’s going to be loud between other diners and then the cars. Regardless, i definitely recommend.

    This restaurant is great for the food and drink, but the service leaves some to be desired. It took 30 minutes for us to be seated after our reservation time and then another 20 for the waiter to come and ask if we wanted anything to eat or drinks. So, I'd go for the fantastic tortas and margaritas, but don't expect your food right away

    We were seated quickly for our reservation. Food came out fast once ordered but ordering and getting service was extremely slow and lacking. Other than that, it's a great restaurant and the food and drinks are yummy. We come here all the time! The taquitos, guac and drinks are my favorite here.

    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.
