California Tortilla

At California Tortilla, we took a look at the standards of common dining options and re-imagined them from the inside out. So what does all of this "re-imagining" mean? It begins with the idea that food should be inspired and that fresh just tastes better. At California Tortilla we have 25 unique homemade recipes that use only the freshest ingredients. Our signature items offer a twist on traditional Mexican flavors and include sauces like Honey Lime, Crunchy BBQ Ranch, Korean BBQ, and California Screamin’. We make our own salsa, guacamole, queso and only use premium proteins. Our food is so fresh you won’t find a freezer in any of our restaurants! We didn’t stop with our food, we also re-imagined the entire guest experience. We talk to our guests, ask them what they are in the mood for, and make sure they LOVE their food. And if they don’t, we do whatever it takes to make it right. We spend our days finding new ways to improve the California Tortilla experience to make sure that it is beyond every customer's expectations. What truly makes us unique is the simple premise that we are serious about food, but not too serious about ourselves.
