Lara’s Tortilla Flats welcomes you to Oshkosh’s first and favorite Mexican Restaurant. Ada Lara Thimke and staff are proud to serve the finest in Mexican cuisine to our customers for the past 40 years.  From our humble beginnings when Tortilla Flats started as a small “hole in the wall” restaurant seating 35-40 people to our current location which seats 125 people, Lara’s has always used the freshest and highest quality ingredients to make your favorite foods.


Whether you are looking for a simple taco or a more complex dish such as Mole Poblano, Lara’s is sure to please and satisfy your appetite. The cuisine of Mexico is as complex and varied as dishes from other ethnic cuisines. Every region in Mexico has its own style in the preparation and serving of all dishes:  from the simple taco to roasted meats. Lara’s brings you the great tastes of Northern Mexico using the culinary traditions of the Lara and Moran family recipes. Our family food is a blend of the various simmering spices and sauces that have made the foods of Northern Mexico so enticing and enjoyable.


We offer all occasion catering options and custom designed menus for parties and events of all types. Our regular menu offers vegan and vegetarian dishes as well as gluten intolerant options. We would love for
you to join us and enjoy the century old traditions of recipes passed down from our great grandmother’s first family restaurant in Salinas, Mexico.
