I'm fairly new to Orange County.....I used to buy my flour tortillas fresh until I moved here, and I haven't found a bakery/tortillaria/whatever that sells them fresh. Anyone have any locations where I can find some? I'll even take someone selling them out of their home at this point!
Supermarkets such as Stater Brothers at Adams and Brookhurst have large flour tortillas ready to cook at home on your griddle. They are in plastic bag near the Italian cheese and butter section--saw it yesterday. The other thing are Trader Joe's handmade flour tortillas that are pretty good.
For corn chips made on the premises from their own corn tortillas I also go to El Toro Bravo on 19th Street in Costa Mesa. The best.

The Gonzalez-Northgate market near me has a really nice tortillaria in it. There are a number of OC locations, but I know the different locations vary quite a bit in how nice they are, whether or not they have a bakery, etc. But you can see their locations here:
and call to see if they make fresh flour ones.
If the Vallarta Supermarket in Anaheim isn't too terribly far from you that would be a likely source.

ADD: With the caveat that I haven't been here there is:
Tortilleria Flor DE Mexicali

I've been to Tortilleria Flor, though I don't recall them selling flour tortillas. They may... I just don't remember seeing them.
Fresh flour tortillas are really hard to find here, I think. But if you want corn... my favorites are from El Toro Bravo in Costa Mesa. Slightly thicker than the average, with a slightly coarser ground. Really, really great. Amazing flavor. You can see the nixtamal process in full form there.

I see a Robert Thorton referenced Northgate, highly recommended. I live close to LAX & the one near me, no matter what time I shop there, is putting out fresh & hot homemade tortillas. I love the King Size corn, they are fantastic. I can't remember the exact price, but you get a bundle of 'em for @ $3.00. Fantastic...
