Venue Info

Adjacent to TJ’s first carwash, Tortas Wash Mobile derived its name from its location. The stand opened in 1964 and has maintained a loyal following ever since, churning out one item, and one item only: a carne asada torta. Tortas Wash Mobile has used its multiple decades of experience to perfect its recipe and grilling technique, settling on butterflied strips of brisket that have been marinated for 12 hours over a mix of charcoal and mesquite chips, chopped into small pieces, and grilled in a metal tub of beef juice before joining guacamole, tomatoes, pickled red onions, hot sauce, and mayo on a Mexico City-style pambaso roll.
