Gorgeous, Southwestern-themed hacienda-like restaurant featuring a tequileria with more than 100 types of distilled agave juice, and a vast, elegant patio with a captivating, flame-spitting waterfall. The food ain't too shabby, either. The gourmet, house-made tortillas are some of the best in the Valley, and there are various, mouth-watering items on the bill of fare, such as the red chile pork chop, the pollo margarita, and the Shawnee sea bass. The kind of place you take someone you want to impress with the holy trifecta of great ambiance, fantastic food and superior service.
I used to visit the Scottsdale area on golf trips. I liked it so much I moved here! One place that we always went for dinner when I was in town was the Tortilla Factory. From the award winning tortillas to the homemade margaritas, the Tortilla Factory was always a great place for dinner.
I will admit, that since moving here, the food doesn't seem as impressive as it once did. The atmosphere is great. If you go, sit outside. I don't care how hot it is, sit outside. There is a fountain, and the environment is worth dining there at least once to experience that. Order a margarita, enjoy whatever tortillas they are making that day, and get something you enjoy for dinner. The pork chops are a favorite of mine.
My parents recently came to visit, and my dad wanted to try the Tortilla Factory. I have to say, the patio is worth coming here alone. I'm a sucker for a good patio, especially one that combines palm trees and twinkle lights. I had the green enchilada - it was tasty, but nothing outstanding.
A word of warning - if you order a margarita, they serve it to you in the glass plus a little shaker with the rest on the side, and I watched two tables try and pour it in their pretty little cactus cup only to have it spill all over. Also, I do think charging $5 for chips and salsa and an additional $4 for guacamole is ridiculous - sorry, I just won't do it. Plus, you don't need to do it, because they'll bring you complimentary tortillas (made in house, of course) with some type of magical yummy butter. That was my favorite part.
Sitting in the patio of this gorgeous old hacienda, surrounded by twinkling lights and leafy trees, feels something like visiting the home of an old friend with excellent taste -- and a huge collection of premium tequilas. The restaurant's bar, or "margaritas tequileria," features 100 agave distillations, and trust us: We have yet to try one that doesn't go down with a blissful shudder. Not into shots? Try the margarita with herradura blanco. Now that's a kick. More »
What better way to enjoy a margarita (or several), a basket of chips and salsa (or several) and maybe even more, than on the twinkly patio at the Old Town Tortilla Factory? This longtime favorite is a little ritzier than your average Mexican dive, but a little less plastic than some of the neighboring Scottsdale joints. We love to kick back on the patio -- weather permitting -- and sample the bar's extensive tequila menu. More »
We can thank those wacky conquistadors for inventing this first distilled liquor of the New World. True, the Aztecs had already thought up pulque, a form of the fermented drink from the agave plant, but it was the Spaniards who first distilled this into tequila, probably because they ran low on their own firewater. Nowadays, fine tequila is as highly regarded by snooty connoisseurs as excellent scotch or whiskey, and it boasts nearly as many varieties. The Old Town Tortilla Factory offers... More »
Old Town Tortilla Factory has a "connoisseurs guide" to its more than 100 premium tequilas. That's nifty. But even better is that we can upgrade our margaritas with any of their fancy tequilas for just an additional dollar.The custom option is just one of the things that makes Old Town's margaritas so good. Fresh-squeezed lime juice and the house standard tequila are others. Even the most basic margarita here is spiked with Sauza silver, a bold and assertive favorite of tequila... More »
