Mexican restaurants with fresh tortillas

I miss LA and San Diego for their Mexican restaurants that serve fresh, hand-made tortillas with their meals. Are there any in SF or the Peninsula?

      Seems like most of these offer fresh corn any of them also do fresh flour ones? It's sad when I have to go to Chevy's to try and get tasty tortillas....

      I did try the ones at El Molino in Concord and were disappointed. Perhaps I got a bad batch because everyone else seems to like them?

        El Toreador in West Portal has fresh flour tortillas on their menu.

      1. Poc Chuc is mentioned in the thread that wolfe links, and it would be my choice. Just had a great lunch there Saturday, with the tortillas and habanero salsa being a highlight, as always. I got excited because they had albondigas on the specials list, but none were available. This turned out to not be as sad as I initially thought, as I tried the salpicon de res, also on the specials list, and it was great. Tangy, flavorful, and perfect with those tortillas. Served warm. Recommended, and a great lunch as well as a great change of pace (you won't find salpicon on many menus in SF, and certainly not in my new home town of Merced, that I know of...).

        Heads up: Poc Chuc is now closed on Sundays as well as on Wednesdays.

        1. La Perla, 224 Lux in South San Francisco has fresh flour tortillas.

          1. Los Jarritos had fresh flour tortillas the last time I was there (about two years ago so maybe someone has a more recent update) but they were delicious
