The Tortillas Moment


As co-owner Charlie Kerns explains: "The burrito war has been fought and won. We didn't win it."

Kerns says that while Tortillas still does enough business to remain open indefinitely, he wanted to retire his labor of love before it slips too far into decline.

"Sometimes things look better in the rear-view mirror," he says.

Yep, mediocre burritos, a restaurant that smelled like warm piss, and a snotty, rude, drug addled staff that managed to get the order right half the time if you were lucky. Miss them...not! They had a great idea and pissed it away.

OMG. This establishment is so very missed and talked about still. Us 30-somethings would do anything to get Tortillas back. Presently, we're left with chain restaurants that deliver unsatisfactory burritos!
