Look for the yellow banner.
  • Look for the yellow banner.

The yellow overhead light in the dining area at Molcas Mexican Grill makes everything look like an eerie, colorized version of itself. The same butterscotch light gives the place a supernatural glow at night, illuminating the numerous diners who go there for tortas and fine plates of carne asada.

Standing there on the corner of Seventh Avenue and Grant Road, with the hotdog grill warming up and mariachi music honking in the air, all is right in the world. A breakfast burrito comes filled with properly scrambled eggs and a dollop of refried beans. The salsa bar is well-stocked, and the ice-cold bottle of Coca Cola makes the morning chill insignificant. One wants for nothing.

Molcas opens at 6 a.m. and closes at 11 p.m. almost every day. The menu board is full of burritos, tortas, fritangas and all the other items you expect from a food truck. Prices range from $2.25 to about $6.

If you can’t find it, look for the yellow “Tortas” banner flapping in the breeze, or just turn your nose to the wind and let the smell of the grill be your guide.
