hole in the wall Mexican joint

I have fond memories of a very cheap and cheerful taco place, actually just a "to go" window basically at the bus station, anyone know if it's still there?

Really don't want to post this, but I'll help you out JesPortland. Tortilla Flats is my favorite Mexican in the SC area. Mole is exceptional and their specials are always unique. Good ingredients = good food. Their margaritas are the best and no scrimping on the alcohol....one is good, two you'd be under the table.

I've never been to Tortilla Flats either - at least that I can remember. I looked at the Yelp reviews and they are very mixed. Some people love it, others are completely not impressed. This mirrors what I have heard from others as well.

I think tortilla flats is worth checking out. I have heard they have really good mole and there is some Friday night burrito special that I had many years ago that was super good. Not sure if they still have it.

I have never tried the place down at the bus station. I really would not have thought to go there for lunch but might have to check it out now!

Well, just be aware that it is a walk-up place. I don't think they even have one table outside. You are on your own.

Nice thread... We will be in Santa Cruz later today and will be looking for somewhere good to eat before heading to Carmel for the night. We love Mexican food! :)
