Deep-fried Quesadillas?

Looking at the menu of a local restaurant I saw this item ...

Quesadilla Turnover
a big flour tortilla, deep fried and stuffed with cheese, ranchera sauce & refried beans

Anyone had a quesdilla that was deep-fried rather than grilled?

Would these be called by another name? No mention of the deep-fried version in this wiki article.

The foodtime does mention deep-frying ...
"A quesadilla is a 'turnover' made by folding a fresh tortilla in half around a simple filling such as cheese, epazote (a pungent herb), and pepper, or potatoes and chorizo, and deep frying it..."

Here's an old thread about quesadillas that has a few brief mentions.

I have to think the restaurant is pretty authentic as they have things like goat birria and eggs with nopales on the menu. They make their own corn and flour tortillas. I'm guessing the streap chili on the menu is some sort of spelling error. They have regular grilled quesdillas on the menu as well.
