Inside College Hill's Tortilleria Garcia, a Mexican Restaurant That Values Tradition

Popular Springdale Mexican eatery Tortilleria Garcia has opened a second location at 5917 Hamilton Ave. in College Hill. Omar Garcia, the restaurant's’ owner, grew up on a family farm in Michoacan, Mexico and learned how to make corn tortillas the old fashioned way from his mother and grandmother. Garcia has committed to honoring his family’s culinary history and his restaurants uncompromisingly follow the family recipe for fresh tortillas — never using flour or preservatives. Garcia’s menu consists of straightforward Mexican classics like tamales, burritos, housemade salsas and rotisserie chicken, in addition to tacos, plus his classic tortilla shells are available in two-pound packs so you can make your own inspired creations at home.
