At California Tortilla, we took a look at the standards of common dining options and re-imagined them from the inside out. So what does all of this “Re-Imagining” mean?

California Tortilla is a unique fast casual restaurant that serves “California style” Mexican food. We focus on one aspect that many other Fast Casuals continue to ignore; quality. So we have to use the best ingredients. We use only premium proteins. Our salsa, guacamole, queso and sauces are made on site, fresh daily from the best ingredients we can get our hands on. In fact, there’s no freezer on site at all. Our menu is recipe based, and while we will make the customer whatever they want, we offer bold and exciting flavor profiles in our signature products.

California TortillaOur Chef-Inspired Creations blend flavors from around the world with the best of Mexican. At Cal Tort you’ll find addictive combinations like Honey Lime, Korean BBQ and our signature California Screamin’. And just in case you are looking to turn up the heat on your favorite dish, Cal Tort is home to the Wall of Flame with 75 hot sauces.

Our business model continues to prove to the world that if you are hyper focused about providing a high quality product, then you will be successful. The proof for this premise is in our surging profitability. We invite you to research the economics of our business model in comparison to other Fast Casuals out there, and come to that determination yourself.
