Mexican: Tortilleria Perches

Tortilleria Perches was thriving long before the taco craze hit Springfield. The taqueria is known for its tortillas, which are made from scratch by Maria Perches, who owns and operates the restaurant alongside her son, Jesus. The fresh corn tortillas are truly something special, especially enjoyed with a heaping platter of the restaurant’s signature carnitas. (Photo by Brad Zweerink)
