This place serves mainly Mexican. It is a fast food restaurant, but the quality is decent. I had a chicken burrito which was big and filling. My daughter had nachos which would have fed both of us. It’s reasonably priced, free wifi as well.

Was walking from from Portrait Museum to my hotel and ran across this joint on Taco Tuesday. Ordered the tacos and salsa. One taco was steak and one was seasoned hamburger. I would skip the hamburger next time and get to steak.

I was staying at the POD hotel in the Chinatown area and I frequented California Tortilla often. Mexican food is usually my top choice and this restaurant provided what I was looking for!
