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

Good local place for margaritas and decent Mexican food. We have been going to this restaurant at their various locations for over 20 years.

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,...

I am here in LA for business. A colleague and I went for lunch. He had the Menudo and I had a pork dish. I asked specifically for corn tortillas, no problem. It is so nice to have really good corn tortillas for a change! The refried beans are extremely tasty. I'll be back! Great prices.
