Best Tortillas

St. Mary's Mexican Food

1030 W. St. Mary's Road

READERS' PICK: St. Mary's has the secret to the best tortillas ever. We're not sure how they do it, but these heavenly wonders are stretched incredibly thin, leaving an extraordinary flavor without the chewy feeling of store-bought tortillas. These torts are muy grande, too, so you can make your giant-sized burro filled with whatever delicious fillings worthy of this wrap. They're made fresh daily, and sold by the dozen. Take home a pint of refried beans or tasty birria, and you'll have all the ingredients for a home-cooked Mexican meal -- without the trouble of doing the actual cooking.

READERS' POLL RUNNER-UP -- TIE: Tania's, 614 N. Grande Ave.; and Anita Street Market, 849 N. Anita Ave. Of course these two would tie. Tania's has been a Tucson institution since 1975, producing hundreds of exquisite, translucent Sonoran flour tortillas a day. Tania's tortillas are authentic Sonoran soul food, made with lard like God intended them to be so they stretch thin and taste perfect.

The Anita Street Market makes both flour and corn tortillas. Their succulent flour tortillas are heavenly, made with an offbeat recipe that includes milk and cottage cheese. Buy one more bag than you think you'll need; they're so rich and delicious, it's dangerously easy to eat a whole bag of them in the car on the way home.
