Tortilla Flats is back in business

Posted by Staff / February 20, 2013

Tortilla FlatsTortilla Flats on Queen West is deadpool no more. Two weeks ago we reported the restaurant was shut down by its landlord for unpaid rent in excess of $40,000. There was an instant outcry from our readers ranging from "that's a shame" to "good riddance". Now, detractors and fans alike might like to know that Tortilla Flats is back - re-opened under the same ownership with no major plans in the works for any changes.

According to an email we received from the current owner, the Flats ran into problems when the building's landlord let it be known they were selling the property. Because their lease was expiring, the owners decided to withhold January's rent until they got word whether they'd be able to renew their lease. The landlord got upset and locked them out.

After we reported the closure, the landlord reached out to the owners of the Flats and informed them the new owner wanted them to stay as a tenant. They then signed a new long-term lease and as of late last week they're back in business.

I had a chimichanga from here and it looked and tasted like hospital food.

do they call it Tortilla flats because the beer is flat?

Surely the T FLat guys read all the comments about how bad the food is.

Question is will they do anything about it?

I've walked past this place countless times and never bothered to set foot in it. People have been complaining about it since I was in high school in the 90s.
