Chancho Tortilleria

Chancho Tortilleria Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Casual walk-in to Chancho Tortilleria tonight to catch up with a friend. If it looks like it's got a line-up, don't be daunted -- go in and see if there's actually a wait for seating or if it's just the lineup to place your order at the counter.

This is diner-style: Place your order, find a table. There are napkins at the table but if you're sharing with friends you probably want to look for a plate and fork as well.

Guacamole ($9)
  • Appys are always more expensive than mains, so you can't expect that much for price for portion.
  • This was okay-tasting. At $9 I'd pass if I went again.
Vegetarian Tortillas ($18 for half pound) - Mixed Potatoes and Vegetables. All orders include condiments: Pickled red cabbage, whole pinto beans, salsas, freshly made Chancho tortillas, and limes.
  • The best part here is price for portion, especially if you are in a group of 3-4 people and order one pound. 1/4 pound is recommended as being enough for one person.
  • We got a 1/2 pound of the mixed, and the potatoes really help to make it a filling meal. So for a casual yet filling meal downtown Chancho is a pretty good option weighing in at around $9-$10 for the veggie option (around +$1 for the meat option).
  • You get enough tortillas that you don't have to ask for more. This is really convenient.
  • DISCLAIMER: I'm not vegetarian. But I was with a friend who in a pescatarian phase so I went with the veggie option. Taste-wise, it was just okay and the condiments didn't elevate it at all.
