Freshest corn tortillas in KC?

I'm looking for a place to get a heaping stack of fresh, home-style corn tortillas in Kansas City. A good tortilleria would be ideal. Anybody got a place they like?

    Since this is a search that is neverending for me...I thought I'd report on my new favorite spot for tortillas. This weekend I got a lovely hot stack of tortillas at Tortilleria San Antonio in KCK. They had a very strong toasted-corn smell. It looks like they have tortillas going all day - when I was there, they were pretty much selling them as fast as they could make them. My bag was so hot it steamed.

        Reyna's on Kansas Ave, west of Seventh Street Trafficway is good. I have to second Laura's. Very good!
        I,too, would love to know where Tortilleria San Antonio is.

        I was there on Friday afternoon. I had already checked Laura's because of chileheadmike's recommendation, but they were out of corn tortillas. I was leaving Reyna's empty handed (tortillas available but not fresh), and a helpful gentleman pointed me to Tortilleria San Antonio. It's on Kansas Ave at Mill St.

        I bought some from Laura's bakery. Right off of their press. Too hot to hold. Can't get any fresher anywhere. Very good tasting too.

        Central Ave, KCK

          I usually buy mine at the Price Chopper in Roeland Park (47th and Roe in JoCo). They are making them fresh all day -- corn and flour.

            I bought a package today and they were PERFECT - exactly what I was looking for. They were still warm when I got them, and I ate a truly obscene amount straight out of the package on the way home. Thanks!

              You know, I was going to recommend those, as that's the best option I've found, but still overall disappointing to me. A little stiff and not corn-y enough. Fresh, though. I'd be very happy if other recs came to light.

                Wow - Price Chopper, who would have thought. I wonder if they have them fresh at the PC's up in the Northland.

                  Doubt it -- it's not really your standard PC

                Agreed! The PC on Roe has great fresh tortillas and lots of other great mexican food finds. Love it!
