“Pretty good fast food Tex Mex”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Our food was healthy and tasty, but I missed the salsa and hot peppers bar that their closest competitor, Baja Fresh, offers. Staff was efficient.

“Best burritos and fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

Unlike other restaurants with similar fare, CalTort offers a great variety of different Burrito flavors. So, each time you go, you can get something different. Everything is tasty and fresh, and the portions are generous. The southwest chicken salad with honey-lime dressing is fabulous as is there salsa and guacamole. They also have a Coke Freestyle machine, so the beverage options are unlimited.
Sign up for their emails for news and special events of "like" them on facebook to find out about promotions. There's always something fun and quirky happening, like Poptart Day.

“Go for the NACHOS!!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

I love Mexican & Spanish Food. Their Tacos are not Top of the Line....I've had better from a Truck on the side of the Bazzar in Wheaton....Go there for Tacos!
BUT................
They have the Best Presented Nachos I've seen around!!! (The Best Nachos Award going to the Nachos you prepare yourself at the Shell Gas Station of Montgomery Mall @ Democracy & Westlake!)
Their better than Taco Bell because their Nachos stay crispy & don't get soggy real fast.
They also have to my amazement a Drink Machine that has over 100 flavors!!!! HONESTLY!!!! They pull this off by mixing sodas & other juicesor syrups. Try it out....it's even Digital! Go for the Nachos!!!!
