Mexican food is an absolute favorite with nearly everyone at the Minnesota State Fair®, and Manny’s Tortas doesn’t disappoint. Not just good Mexican food, but authentic AND delicious Mexican food? You don’t find that on every street corner in Minnesota. When authentic, incredible Mexican food shows up at the Great Minnesota Get-Together®, you know you’ve got your hands on something special.
When it comes to the Minnesota State Fair, if there is one thing we can count on, it is most definitely the food. We love our fair-food-on-a-stick, don’t we? But when the flavors pop in this delicious Mexican sandwich known as a torta, like they do from Manny’s Tortas, who cares about a stick? This is worth sitting down for.
Who Is Behind Manny’s Tortas?
Manuel Gonzalez and his sister, Victoria, own Manny’s Tortas in the Twin Cities as well as their stint at the fair. Together, this brother-sister team have created a perfect combination of American and Mexican culture with a mixture of incredible seasonings and spices in these authentic Mexican sandwiches. (No worries, you can also find appetizers and desserts galore!)
Manny’s Tortas first opened in 1999, as part of the Latino Business Development Project in Minneapolis. Being a part of this initiative was important to Manuel and Victoria, as they combined his years of chef-magic with her 15 years’ experience in hospitality management. Now this dynamic team has made a name for themselves and they are the coveted sweet spot in the Twin Cities for delicious food.
Just Because the Fair is Gone, Doesn’t Mean the Fun Is
Just because State Fair season has passed doesn’t mean this team is done providing great food at award-winning entertainment functions in the Cities. Join in the festivities on September 22, as they are part of the Taco Throwdown 2019. This bash takes place at the Eastlake Craft Brewery, and you can purchase tickets for this event that either include alcohol or do not include alcohol. You really don’t want to miss out on one last bash before the cold weather heads on in, do you? Never heard of the Taco Throwdown? You get to try tacos side by side from three incredible vendors and add a favorite craft beer as well, if you like. How does it even get better than this? Come join us! We welcome you to enjoy a good time with Manny’s Tortas either at the Taco Throwdown 2019 or at our restaurant in Midtown Global Market!
