Sunday Lunch
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.

Such great food, light dishes, great drinks (we had top-shelf Tequila when we ordered shots) for really affordable prices. Great for groups.

Average service - tables were a bit too close together for our comfort level

During this pandemic, Tortaria has become our go-to place for outdoor brunch. Prices are good - esp. their specials - and they take reservations. A bright spot to visit.

Food is a little pricey as portions are little; not the best option in mexican.

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.

We were a group of 4 out celebrating a birthday. We were seated properly at our reserved time at a nice table outdoors.
The drinks were good. The guacamole was excellent and the chicken enchiladas were good.
I was not crazy about my vegetable bowl; it was just OK.
The service was very good and the ambience was good.
We had a very nice birthday celebration and appreciated the scoop of ice cream and candle at the end!

Waitress was rude and inattentive but the busers were good and picked up her slack.

My teenage daughter and I love Tortaria—I always get the cauliflower tacos and she loves a chicken quesadilla. This spot always has a fun vibe; we always take friends and family here. Can’t wait to sit back inside the restaurant in the air conditioning and enjoy a paloma (tequila and grapefruit soda-so zesty!!)

Great food, Great service- even with outdoor dining. It was not a busy street so, there was little to no noise. Umbrellas were placed above each table so you’re not sitting in the hot sun. Definitely will recommend & revisit!
