The Feast - Luna's debuts first sit-down eatery


After 87 Years of Supplying Other Restaurants, Luna's Tortilla Factory Opens Its Own Place


If you've dined at Snuffer's, Blue Goose, Gloria's or Humperdink's, chances are you've eaten a Luna brand tortilla. The venerable factory—founded by San Luis Potosí transplant Maria Luna in 1924—churns out thousands of tortillas and tamales daily, then distributes them to over 200 local restaurants. After 87 years in business, current owner Fernando Luna (Maria's grandson), decided it was time to open the factory's first sit-down eatery simply dubbed Restaurante Luna's.

"We always wanted to open our own place," Luna says. "The space came available next door, so the time was just right." Don't come here expecting Tex-Mex—the menu is comprised of simple, authentic Mexican dishes. "Everything comes from old family recipes," Luna says. "It's the stuff we grew up eating at home." Think pollo en mole, tablitas, chile rellenos and picadillo all made with top-notch ingredients. The only thing missing is liquor. Luna says he's applying for a license today and should have it within two or three months. Until then, you'll have toBYOB. Take a tour of the place via our slideshow above. [The Feast]
