History

Despite its name, California Tortilla got its start in Bethesda Maryland. Pam Felix and Alan Cohen set up the first location there in August 1995.

In 2014 and 2015, Washingtonian Magazine readers declared that California Tortilla’s 51 locations served the best Mexican food in the Washington D.C. area.

Review

California Tortilla initially seems like a typical fast-casual Mexican joint. But the little things, from the wall of hot sauce to the quarterly newsletter, add a local touch.

In addition to the ambiance, the food doesn’t disappoint. The ingredients are fresh, and the wide variety of menu options will keep you coming back until you try them all.

In addition to the classic burritos, you won’t want to miss the salads and quesadillas.  The nachos are also perfect to share with your table.

The friendly (and often quite funny) staff will make your food quickly and with a smile. No need to worry about reservations here.
