Our humble beginning took place in Elvira Leal's kitchen.
To make ends meet while her husband Ruben was away fighting in War World II, Elvira, a seasonal crop picker, began making handmade tortillas and tamales for her neighbors and friends.
Elvira soon realized that the tortilla industry was very prosperous. Upon the return of her husband, Ruben and Elvira opened a small tortilla factory in what was then Dallas's Little Mexico District.
Their factory soon blossomed into what is today Dallas Tortillas & Tamale Factory, with several locations in the Dallas area and still growing.
