"I discovered...all varieties of tortillas (corn and flour), freshly made of high quality ingredients. They have an impressive line of offerings, including tostada shells of various colors. I left with tasty blue corn tortillas, healthy but very tasty whole wheat tortillas, and a batch of awesome tasting red child whole wheat flour tortillas. Given that their products are affordable, made without preservatives, and high quality ingredients, I can't see buying my tortillas anywhere else."

- Tony H.

"Great staff, very nice and helpful. Gluten free and organic masa available."

"I've been searching since 2001 for a good tortilla in AZ. I'm born and raised in the SF Bay area with lots of tortilla factories around. Mama Lolas is the first yellow corn tortilla that is just tortilla no MSG or other things I can't pronounce. They are thick and wonderful. They do not fall apart great for making enchiladas and tacos. We also made corn chips. This is the only tortilla I will buy from now on and I have to drive almost 15 miles from my home in far east Gilbert to superstition market to buy them!"
