Tortilla Flats

The highbrow references end with the restaurant’s name, which Tortilla Flats shares with a John Steinbeck novel. After 25 years, this Tex-Mex dive is still good for salsa and kitsch—the border-town decor and Elvis ephemera satisfy our baser instincts. Ditto the food: Moist ground-beef tamales, gloriously greasy quesadillas and bulging bean-stuffed burritos go down easy with fruity frozen margs. On weekends, it’s mobbed with young yahoos; come on quieter weeknights, when you can chow down during bingo and trivia challenges.

A fun, rowdy place for people who love Mexican food and margaritas! I once came here at noon during the week and the waiter offered us tequila shots with our coronas. If that's what they're doing on a weekday during lunch, you can imagine what nights (especially weekends) are like. The restaurant is weirdly decorated but it adds to the uniqueness and dive-y restaurant that is nestled into the expensive Meatpacking District. This place offers special nights like trivia night, bingo night and hula hoop night. I went for a bingo night which was really fun - winners got free drinks and apparel. They also have a party package for large groups where you can pay $60/person for an entree, all you can drink anything (pitchers, margaritas, beer, sangria, etc. anything except for shots), tax and tip at 20%! Looking forward to coming back!
