Tortilla chips fried in lard

While eating at Los Guanacos, a Salvadoran place in Mission Terrace (SF), I noticed that the tortilla chips were cooked in lard. Delicious and fried there daily. I'm not sure I've had, or at least noticed, tortilla chips fried in lard before.

Do other places (still) fry their tortilla chips in lard and do any fry in in-house rendered pig fat rather than those blocks and tubs of hydrogenated stuff?
