Spectacular Southwestern - Old Town Tortilla Factory
By David P. DiFilippo
As a world renowned golf destination, Greater Phoenix is celebrated for having a roster of incredible courses. The destination is also known for wonderful weather and at present, is rapidly earning a reputation as a culinary hotspot.
For an authentic taste of the region, Scottsdale’s Old Town Tortilla Factory is simply the ultimate Southwestern dining experience.
Family owned and operated since 2001, this hidden gem is situated in the middle of the chic, Old Town district in a historic 1935 Adobe home.
After entering through an impressive archway, you’ll encounter a 1,400 square foot flagstone patio that is enclosed by green vegetation and shaded by mature pecan trees. The centerpiece is beautiful Firewater fountain. This incredible space also has a premium cooling system for the hotter months and ample heaters to warm you when it gets “cool”.
Margarita’s Tequilarilla, a separate, freestanding gazebo bar featuring over one hundred premium tequilas and a complete assortment of beer, wine and liquor is also located on the patio.
The Factory’s savory cuisine is Southwestern in principle but with a Mexican twist. The portion sizes are surprisingly generous while the menu prices are surprisingly reasonable; especially when you consider the authentic, quality ingredients within the recipes and Old Town tourist-zone location.
My personal favorite menu items include the Tortilla Soup, Green Enchiladas, Grilled Salmon and Carne y Camarones (Filet Mignon & Giant Prawns) but trust me, you will be satisfied, literally and figuratively, with whichever dish that you select.
Be sure to consult the staff for recommendations because the Tortilla Factory’s knowledgeable and professional service team is truly there to please and make your dining experience memorable.
The Old Town Tortilla Factory is open for dinner, seven nights a week. To make a reservation call 480.945.4567. Buon Appetito!
