While visiting friends in Torrance, they suggested lunch at the Burnt Tortilla, which was just a few blocks from their house. So off we went. We got there about 11:30, which was a smart move in that the place filled up quickly by noon. My friends ordered the "wet" beef burrito with rice and beans. I wasn't very hungry, so... More

The sports bar area is fun and energetic, and the restaurant only area is large enough to host a party. Of course, the drinks and food are great! The waiters are friendly and very efficient.

We brought a group of 10 after attending college graduation of my SO's daughter. I was surprised at how easily the staff handled a group that size with little to no issues on a crowded evening. Our servers were on the ball and took good care of us. My Chili Verde was excellent. Pork was succulent and the Verde Sauce... More

If you're in the mood for something good. And don't have a lot of time then this is the spot. It's local and they have a cool bar. I always get the wet burrito, taquitos, or nachos. Haven't been disappointed yet

Actually, nothing is burned but the name is funny and the food is great. A favorite with locals, the food is really tasty and very well prepared. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant is festive. Sometimes so many come to eat that it can be noisy inside but certainly a great place for families.

Joined some family members for dinner here and was pleased with the quantity and flavor of the food. Saw what other dishes the family ordered and will definitely have to return to try them out.

Burnt tortilla had a couple other locations as I recall both gone now and this new one feels fancier and perhaps is slightly more costly. The food and service is good, but I also felt the cost was high and the portions too big. Mexican is a cuisine that can be a little more affordable elsewhere, so while I was... More

I'm tempted to say that the Burnt Tortilla is head and shoulders above any other Mexican restaurant I've ever been to, but the truth is that they're head, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, and toes above any other Mexican restaurant I've ever been to. Their salsa is on the hot side but is very flavorful. All of their deluxe burritos are... More
