Looking 4 West Valley Mex Restaurant w/handmade tortillas

I used to go to Pacos in Culver City and La Cabaña in Venice when living on the westside, but I am still seeking a Mexican restaurant in the west-Valley where they serve thick handmade tortillas de maiz after 9 years of valley life. Any suggestions for the nearby environs of Woodland Hills, or even Northridge? Theres Mexican grocery with a small kitchen on Sherman Way in a strip mall, near DeSoto that makes handmade tortillas, tamales and assorted standards. This is okay for take outs, if you can get there before their early closing. Chowhounds' recommendations would be valued.
Carrillo's Mexican deli at 19744 Sherman Way is the one I assume you were referring to. It is very good but I do agree the ambiance could be better. They also have them in Simi Valley and San Fernando. The Luna family runs all three. You must want to eat fairly late?
If it is still in business, try Lencheta's on Vanowen just east of Winnetka across the street from Cupids.
