In a time when women were kept at home and away from the workplace Maria Luna, who at the time was a single parent, rose from the kitchen to create her mark on Dallas history with Luna’s Tortilla Factory. A strong and devoted woman Luna gathered local women to crush her nixtamal , or corn that would become masa. Once gathered Luna had the masa formed into tortillas and tamales which became a business that is soon to be 95 years old and run by her son and grandson, both named Fernando.

To celebrate this auspicious occasion the Luna family will roll back prices on their now famous beef enchilada plate to 2.95 Wednesday, February 27th, with mariachis at 6:30.

Luna’s is  located at 2225 Connector in Dallas near Gas Monkey.
