Always fun – We like to meet for Monday Bingo. Really fun bartender (Fabrizio). Long time between games, though.
MARGS! – Very cute place in the village. Popular without the pretentious feel many other bars in this area give off. I loved playing bingo at the tables, and the staff is wildly entertaining! Great time.
Tortilla Flats is the staple cheap eats spot in the meatpacking. Its got the feel of a college bar in the too cool for school hood. Went here on a random week night and sat outside in this dive resto and had a blast. Any place that sells pitchers of margaritas is ok in my book. Noshed on chips, guac and salsa. Then we split a Mexican short stack (I remember tortillas and cheese) and an enchilada verde which was also drowned in cheese. Its gluttony at its best. I hear they play bingo inside but it was too nice of a night to be indoors no matter how kitschy it is. Solid, cheap Mexican makes for a fun night.
What a blast! – Came here last night with a group of friends. First time and I had a lot of fun! We didn't eat here just had pitchers of Margarita's, which were delicious, and played bingo. My whole table won free shots of tequila. Lot of fun and great crowd of people!
Fun place to come with a group of fun and just get tipsy!
Simple but exciting – Just another typical mexican joint in the city. I wasn't impressed with the food but really enjoyed the bingo and hula hooping! My table won bingo about 3 times so we were happy with the shots we received.
Fun for a group or date but don't expect anything tasty to eat!
Another average mexican joint in NY, but with entertainment – Manhattan has everything in terms of cuisine EXCEPT quality mexican and my mission has been to seek out the best of what we've got. Tortilla Flats is unfortunately another average example to add into the mix. The one exception to the above rule is my trusty staple on 18th street - Los Dos Molinos - tasty food (as long as you like it spicy) and fishbowl-sized margaritas. I kept hearing of more and more people heading to Tortilla Flats so I checked it out last night to see if it was just hype. I ordered the shortstack and my friends got the tacos al pastor and the fajita salad. Nothing to write home about. The food was eh, salsa was pretty good and the margaritas were average to good but on the sweet side. The attraction here is really ambience - Mon and Tues bingo, Wed Hula Hooping. Go for the entertainment and the happy hour margarita pitchers but you might keep it at that.
Tortillatastic! – Went here on cinco de mayo and actually was able to score a table. Around 7 the wait was hours, but the host was super funny and making announcements and seating anyone in a complete party. They have outdoor seating, yummy margaritas and sangria by the pitcher. They brought out water, chips and salsa as soon as we sat down. They have a specials menu that had a hilar take on the american girl place stories while describing a dish! They let us sit, eat and drink in peace without trying to aggressively turn a table on such a crazy day. The best part about this place is the scene- skinny, bored looking wait staff and patrons. And they play killer 80's music. Loved!
You can get better food for a lot less – The food is okay, but I have gotten bigger and better burritos for quite a bit cheaper. I didn't have any alcohol while I was there, but drink prices seemed awfully high for the type of place it was. The decor and party atmosphere were a lot of fun, but it was so loud that it got really difficult to hear other people in my party. I hate not being able to hear people when they talk to me. And like I said, I've definitely had much better burritos for a lot less money, like at Paquitos in the East Village. Won't be going back anytime soon.
We went on a Friday night, the place was packed but we were seated fairly promptly. Free chips and salsa started us off but things went downhill from there. Food was mediocre (though thankfully not too expensive), service was unreliable and our waitress was just very, very confused. Not worth it in my book.
WORST customer service ever – Do NOT go to Tortilla Flats, quite possibly the rudest establishment in NYC. In fact, avoid it like the plague. My coworkers and I made a reservation to celebrate the termination of a successful project at this restaurant, but before we showed up that evening, we called to make sure that it would be all right if one of our team members came in costume. (Due to the nature of his job, he would not have had time to change before dining with us). The extremely rude manager told us that, "he didn't like the sound of that" several times (seriously, he sounded like a broken record), even though we tried to explain that our group would not be bothering any other patrons - just dining with someone in an unusual outfit. He then went OFF on us, actually making one of my colleagues cry, saying that we were not welcome in his restaurant, and in his ten years of working there, he couldn't believe that there were still people out there trying to "pull fast ones" on him. WHAT was he talking about? We just wanted to celebrate a job well done, and instead he ruined our evening. If this type of prejudice toward potential patrons is the norm at Tortilla Flats, what's next? Racism, sexism, etc? I wouldn't trust this place - the people who work there seem to be loose canons with no sense of human decency. Plus, their food is awful and I've heard they have a rodent problem. Go to Rosa Mexicano's instead.
