We were looking for a quick lunch and found it here. Fresh, priced well and big servings. Clean tables and glass. Recommended

We visited on Friday, September 16, 2016 at about 12:55p.m. near L'Enfant Plaza station in the District 🤗👍🏾 service during this high time was quick and easy. There was hardly a line and the wait was between 3-4 minutes for the food. I ordered the "Honey Lime Chicken Bowl" (can only find it as a burrito on their on-line menu)... More

Fresh ingredients and not too expensive. Large portions and helpful service. Nothing bad to say about it!

While I went to the restroom, my mother checked the menu out. When I came out, she didn't like it (it was very limiting) and wanted to leave. On the way out, the worker called out, "Thanks!" in a very rude tone.

I had the fish tacos and good and guac. Both were fresh and delicious. The price wasn't bad either. Great place for a quick lunch.

First time at a California Tortilla - good food, seemed fresh, and pretty inexpensive. The burrito was huge, and the queso and guacamole were surprisingly fresh and delicious.

If you like burritos, tacos, etc, give this place a try. It's a bit different than some of the more well know chains - their recipes are quite tasty (carnitas!), the food is fresh and they have more types of hot sauce than a grocery store! Service is quick and they keep the place clean and neat. Located near the... More

...but not great. It's pretty much exactly what you'd think and nothing more. It was fine and was more than enough food, but I would be just fine never eating here again. I got the steak quesadillas. My wife had fajitas.
