We ate here for a late lunch. It was so good!! I'm not a huge bread person, but their homemade bread was really good. I was told they make their own bread to hold on the food that makes the sandwich. They have a huge selection of tortas to choose from. It would be hard for a person not to... More

Came here for lunch. This places sells mainly tortas but with a large selection of them. At 11am, this place was already busy. By the time I left 30 minutes later the line was 10 deep. Lunch time seems to be fairly busy. I tried both the carne asada and the chef daily special (chicken). Both sandwiches were light with... More

There is a huge selection of sandwiches to choose from, whatever your fancy. Their menu is customized daily so there's always new creations to try. Their sweet potato fries is highly recommended too. Best to share with a friend as it can get pretty filling.

One the outside, you might think that this is your typical burrito stand restaurant, but looking a little closer, you will see some nice outdoor patio furniture. Upon entering, it looks even nicer, with a little touch of class in their ambiance. Cook's Tortas has a large selection of sandwiches, it's hard to choose what to get. We got three... More

I don't go for lunch because of the tremendously long lines. For the students and people who work nearby, they think 15min-30min wait in line is worth it. Personally, I prefer to eat there when it is not lunch time. Before 11:00am and after 1:30pm there is always seating even though seating is limited. They have a great variety of... More

I heard about this place and finally drove 30 minutes to try the tortas. La Diabla torta with grilled chicken, jalapenos, chile de arbol, habanero guacamole, grilled cheese, black beans was sooo spicy you cannot taste anything. BBQ pulled pork torta was good, but had too much bbq sauce. The potato salad had too much mustard, but the macaroni salad... More
