My husband, son and I finally went to the Tortilla Press to find out what all the 5 star fuss was about. We love Mexican food and always try and support local businesses, so we thought this would be a win win situation. The restaurant itself is nice, with local artists work adorning the walls, but it is a little worn looking, with walls in bad need of paint. The waitress came to take our order and though she was nice enough, seemed extremely disinterested in her job. She brought out a basket of breakfast nachos(slightly sweet with a hint of cinnamon) even though it was 3 in the afternoon. Half the basket tasted like it had been out since breakfast, which it probably had. My husband and I ordered the chicken burritos and when they came they were the most flavorless burritos I had ever eaten! There was absolutely NO seasoning, no spices and zero taste. Im not usually one to complain, but this food tasted like boiled water with substance. I called the waitress over and told her I could not finish the meal, it was that bad. She looked at me and said "Yeah, this is one of the worst items on the menu." Picked up my plate and walked off. The manager came over to see if she could bring me something different, but I wasn't about to wait around for more awful food, The manager explained that there were plenty of people who came to the restaurant that didn't like Mexican food and therefore they made certain items "plain" to satisfy those guests. WHAT?! Why would you go to a Mexican restaurant IF YOU DONT LIKE MEXICAN FOOD?! Unfortunately, she had no intelligent response. They did take the item off the bill without me having to ask them to do so. That was the highlight of the meal. If you love flavorless ,stale food and disinterested service, then by all means, this is the restaurant for you! Enjoy!
