Boy is this place fun, once you get a table. This little Mexican restaurant is jammed packed with people waiting for tables. The margaritas are strong strong strong. It was 8 of us and I think we had 4 or 5 pitchers of deliciousness.
The atmosphere is that of a buzzing, authentic Mexican restaurant with cool artifacts and pictures and trinkets all over the place. The music is loud, I think there was even a dj or mc. At this place, it’s about more than the food; it’s about the fun. It was Ian’s girlfriend Ally’s birthday, as well as a few others in the restaurant, so they had a chugging contest, and then rounds of shots afterwords. Like I said, this place is fun.
The tacos, chips, and enchiladas were all good, and we were stuffed. Needless to say, we did not make it out after our dinner/binge drinking. Cant wait to go back.
Ian Says…”Tortilla Flats is one of the most “talked about” mexican spots in the city. I’ve heard people mention it a million times but never could get a reservation and didn’t want to deal with the put your name down and wait an hour type deal. Now that I’ve bit the bullet and got in, i can say its 100% worth it. It’s just fun from the second you grab a drink at the bar waiting for your table.
It’s rare that a cool spot in the West Village makes you feel like you’re in college again (in a good way). The place is known for the party vibe so everyone there is in big groups and often celebrating something so there’s just a happy feeling all around. And the manager/MC of the evening gets everyone involved in the fun so beware you shy folks.
Have fun everyone and make sure you mention you heard about them from WestVillageFood.com for a free shot (talk to Wade for that pictured here below with us 😉
