Las Tortas in Denver

This is a Torta Ahogada. A Torta is like a Mexican Sandwich with a lot of the same meats and fillings you would find in a taco or burrito. I can't even begin to tell you how insanely good this thing was. It was voted one of Westwards Top 100 dishes in Denver. They take this awesome bread, fill it with all kinds of fillings of your choice. Then it's smothered with a sauce that is delicious. Las Tortas is a small little hole in the wall of a place but it's worth the trip no matter where you are in the state. Try one of the Las Torta Specials like the La Macha, It has Chorizo, Steak Milanesa a hot dog and a frickin' FRIED EGG!!!!! all on one sandwich. The people are nice as can be and very helpful to us Gringos who don't know a whole lot about Tortas. Take my word for it, this will be your new favorite thing to eat and you will crave it at some point shortly after your first visit. Thanks - Shannon - True Grub Lub

  1. omg, gotta get to Las Torta. Thanks for the heads up.

  2. Went there two weeks ago. Had the traditional Torta Ahogada. You are right, I have been craving it ever since. Had one tonight from a place in west Denver called Mama Tere. It was okay but not as good as Las Tortas. I'm wondering what other places around town have good ones.
