Brunch at Downtown Disney’s Tortilla Jo’s!

While nothing compares to the magic of going inside the theme parks of The Disneyland Resort, did you know you can have fun, shop and dine outside of the parks? When Disney’s California Adventure opened in 2001, they also unveiled The Downtown Disney District which boasts an array of incredible shops like World of Disney (Imagine The Disney Store on major steroids), The Disney Vault (Loaded with couture boutique specialties) and Build-A-Bear Workshop, Casual dining like Jamba Juice and Wetzel’s Pretzels  then, for a fabulous experience at the Anaheim resort, there are several sit down, fine dining options.

Thanks to Gigasavvy, I got to experience Downtown Disney’s Tortilla Jo’s weekend brunch this past Saturday and let me tell you, brunch is good enough, but, add in bottomless mimosas and their famous margaritas? Heck yes!

Upon entering Tortilla Jo’s, you definitely take note of the bright, hacienda like decor to the restaurant and cannot help but feel HAPPY with the red and yellow colors to their walls and the gorgeous tiles below you. I was directed upstairs to my bloggers soiree, which is where they hold their private events (perfect for a reception, birthday, meeting…) and you’re even treated to a separate bar. It was also fun to be able to peek downstairs  from up top and watch the venue prepare for the day.

While Tortilla Jo’s is known for their authentic Mexican cuisine everyday, weekends find them offering their fabulous brunch that has all your faves like huevos rancheros, pancakes and chilaqules ….as well as cinnamon french toast, cobb salad and a dish I cannot wait to try next time: tequila cured salmon. All entrees are just $14 and include fresh fruit and desserts featuring mini apple chimichangas and churros.

Then, for just $10 more, you get the reason why most of us love brunch: The bottomless mimosas. You get them coming to your table for an hour. If a mimosa isn’t your thing, they have their famous margaritas, beers, coffee and tea to have, as well, including a cinnamon coffee. I got to try out their peach and mango margaritas and I can assure you I am already thinking about which to try next time 😉

Whether you’re an Orange County local, visiting Disneyland, just in need of a weekend brunch to catch up with friends at or perhaps somewhere to grab a bite before a movie at Downtown Disney’s AMC Theatre, Tortilla Jo’s is THE place to head to, and, you’re just steps from Disneyland. What could be better?! Check them out HERE and learn more.

    Hi Mary,
    Ive been to Tortilla Jo’s many times. It’s a great place to take a break from a Disney visit and rest your feet and renergize for round two or as a pit stop between parks. Definitely Americanized Mexican food, but still super yummy all the same. And endless margaritas? Cool.
