Hey everyone! I just moved to Las Vegas and was hoping to find a market that sells fresh flour tortillas. Anyone know of a good spot?

Thanks!

    Have you tried Mariana's Supermarket? There's one at Sahara and Valley View and a few others around town.

      I don't think Mariana's makes fresh tortillas, but I might be wrong. But the OP could do worse than explore the restaurant and eat at the restaurant there - much good food to be had at a bargain price, at least at the Sahara location.

        Just to clarify, I don't know if Mariana's makes fresh tortillas... but that would be the first place I'd know to check. Hopefully the OP or somebody can report back.

          I've only been in Mariana's (the one on Sahara) a few times but seem to recall seeing them make fresh tortillas in that little glassed-in room in the right rear part of the store.

            They definitely make fresh tortilla chips in that area. They then bag them and sell them in the market -- and they used to serve these marvelous chips with several salsas for free in the snack bar area.

              According to their website, Mariana's makes fresh corn tortilla's daily.

                Marianna's make both corn and flour tortillas and they really are very, very good. The flour tortillas are nothing like the mass-produced cardboard discs available in supermarkets. They have a couple of locations around the valley and it's worth the trip just for the tortillas but you'll want to check out the butcher case, too.

      One of my favorite Mexican restaurants is in Vegas: Lindo Michoacan on Desert Inn. They used to make their tortillas fresh right there and sure that they would sell them to go. I recommend eating here as well. The claim to use authentic recipes from deep down in Mexico and get away from the taco/burrito fare that most Americans call Mexican food. They had a sister restaurant in town too but I didn't find it quite as good.
