Very good Mexican restaurant, and has lots to choose from. Very good burritos and salads. Only complaint is, for Uber Eats there could be an option to add hot sauce.

My niece used to work there and knows the owners very well. She loves it there. Very good food. Nice to eat outside if the weather is good. I would recommend for a fast food option.

Fresher ingredients than some burrito places with additional options-quesadillas, nachos, salads. More than enough food for a $10 lunch.

If you're unfortunate enough to need to visit the County Courthouse around the corner, you might find yourself wanting to duck inside California Tortilla for a quick lunch or snack. If so, I wouldn't hesitate: it's convenient, the food is reasonably good and low-priced, and...More

Nice place to stop for a quick bite or carryout. Food is good but not spectacular. Easy to get in and out.

Had the steak burrito bowl with sour cream and was good. Steak was tasty but I should have gotten a different sauce for extra flavor.

I've been to a few places in this chain. I'd say this location is no better or worse than the others. I'd choose a Chipolte if there was one around, but not here. Not a bad option for before or after a movie.

We love this place for a quick bite. I love the fish tacos and the salad with the honey lime dressing. It is consistently good.
