California Tortilla

Food that's built to impress. For a restaurant that's built to perform. For a franchise that's built to grow. The California Tortilla concept is Mexican re-imagined.

Invest in a Fresh, Healthy Lifestyle
At California Tortilla, we looked at the standards of common dining options and ‘re-imagined’ them from the inside out. So what does all of this "Re-Imagining" mean?

Food should be inspired. We offer 25 unique house-made recipes. Our food is innovative, our signature items offer a twist on traditional Mexican flavors and include sauces like Honey Lime, Crunchy BBQ Ranch, Korean BBQ.
Fresh just tastes better fresh; we prepare fresh food throughout the day. We don't even have freezers in our restaurants!
