Galdino "Tortas" Molinero
Heart, soul, and soccer associate of the Tortas Neza truck in Corona.
Tortas on the Griddle
Every one of Neza's tortas is thrown on the griddle after assembly. The results are a deep golden brown and a hefty crunch.
Neza's signature sandwich is named after the owner's favorite Mexican soccer club. Try it with a gallon of your finest Jarritos.

The Monarcas is a showcase for Neza's outstanding carnitas, which are slow-roasted, then browned on the grill. Making full use of muscle, fat and cartilage, they're not for the faint of heart.
The Chivas layers a heap of fresh quesillo atop a freshly made chorizo omelette. This one is especially nice with pickled jalapeno and Neza's "hormigas" chili sauce.
Torta Potros Atlantes
The Potros Atlantes and the Puebla feature milanesa (fried breaded cutlets); the former is beef and the latter is chicken. These are two of the sparsest Tortas sandwiches on the menu, which is saying a lot.
Tortas' roasted chili sauce, which translates to "ants," has a bright flavor and a slow burn. No ants are harmed in the making of this condiment.
Too good to avoid a second helping. Fortunately, that's what the taco menu is for.
Neza's tinga (stewed chicken) is juicier and more flavorful than most, with a deep red color and the taste of spiced, stewed tomatoes. The tortillas for Neza's quesadillas are pressed to order from a bowl of Maseca-based masa.
Tortas Neza is on wheels, but it's not exactly on the go. You can find the truck in Corona, on Roosevelt Avenue at 111th St., seven days a week.
