You know what doesn’t get enough love around town? Gorditas, the word that means “chubby” in Spanish. Well, it’s time to get chubby and revisit a food truck that specializes in the dish. Gorditas Y Tortas opened a coupled of years ago and is one of the secret gems in town. They can be found at 2437 N. Broadway and is a go-to spot for me when it comes to gorditas.

The gorditas were $1.75 and typically three is good for a manageable lunch to get me through the day. I had three gorditas with chicharron cuerito, chicharron prensado and guisado verde.
They were wonderful. I couldn’t choose a favorite as they were all excellent. I loved their chicharron prensado which was basically a pork skin with a generous layer of fat still attached. If you can get over the texture, it’s a tasty delight with a bit of a kick. Their guisado verde would probably be a safer option for those venturing into the gordita world; who doesn’t love all things verde? If you love all foods, you can’t go wrong with any of their gorditas.
And in the rare case gorditas aren’t your thing, they also have tortas, burritos, hot dogs, menudo and more.
Here’s the menu:
