Generous portions of pretty good Mexican food

Very friendly service and large portions of good Mexican food. Large, varied menu. Very good value. A negative: very noisy, many large groups celebrating. Lighting is harsh and overly bright, an annoyance for me.

Was introduced to this establishment by a friend and since then, I've brought others and been back several times and never disappointed. Servings are generous but most important, it's clean and frequented both by Latinos, which is a good indicator, and Non-Latinos and always a crowd during Meal Times. Parking is good as its located in a Strip Shopping Center... More

Have lived in the area for year and had never tried eating at the Burnt Tortilla until a good friend had her briadal shower there I was quit surprised with how good and affordable the food was. Since that time I've been back twice within a month. This is now one of my favorite mexican food resturants.

We've been going to Burnt Tortilla for years. The food is definitely comfort food. The portions are generous and satisfying.

The BT has made another attempt to go upscale (remember the place on Artesia?). It's great that wanted to move into a nicer location but I don't feel the increase in prices is justified. The bar prices on their drinks aren't exactly a deal either. The food is still good but at the prices they are asking, there are a... More

Just a note: The kitchen burnt down. Ironic right considering it's named Burnt Tortilla. The TO GO restaurant is open but the main restaurant will have to be fixed before it opens up again. Came here with some co-workers for lunch and after much bragging that this place is better than El Pescador. It's actually pretty good. They have great... More

A a third generation native Californian, I've had over fifty years of eating Mexican food around L.A. and So Cal. Everything from Senior Alberto's in Oceanside (try the Cali burrito with roast beef and french fries - killer!) to the Border Grill in Santa Monica (overpriced El Torito like) to the Garden's of Taxco on Santa Monica Boulevard (real Mole,...
