It was our first visit to a California Tortilla. Big menu, service is quick, the food was fresh and tasty. Nice location of the restaurant - corner of Norfolk and Cordell Ave in Berthesta. There are lots of seats outside.

I work down the road and they've always (save one time, not of their fault) gotten my delivery on-time. The employees in the store and the delivery drivers have always been pleasant. The food is always really good, no different from any other California Tortilla,...More
