Burritos were initially encased in bubble wrap, which made them difficult to digest but easy to transport and fun to step on. Since 1995, California Tortilla has been at the forefront of edible-wrap technology, serving up fresh and tasty Mexican grub to guacamole addicts and tacocionados. California Tortilla’s menu features several south-of-the-border options, salads, and sides. Grab a mitt-fitting burrito ($5.49/$6.29) outfitted with tasty fillings such as mesquite chicken, blackened chicken (+ $0.20), taco beef, grilled steak (+ $0.60), or pork carnitas (+ $0.40). Or opt for a steak fajita platter ($7.99) with tortillas, rice, black beans, peppers, onions, sour cream, guacamole, and salsa. Plus, California Tortilla's Wall of Flame features more than 70 hot sauces, such as Dave’s Insanity and Megasoreass, to spice up tasty bites and melt icy demeanors.
Avoid gimmicky eateries offering bland, football-sized burritos and burritos filled with bland-tasting footballs. Let California Tortilla's spunky staff of tortilla tossers welcome you into its vibrant burrito abode. The fresh ingredients and tantalizing smells in California Tortilla's authentic Mexican eats draw happy crowds, unlike Uncle Jeb’s door-to-door snake-oil massage service.
- The...Pratt Street location of this Washington-based mini-chain looks primed to take advantage of Baltimore's lack of quickie takeout Mexican joints, at least for the downtown day-jobbers. In addition to salads and tacos and whatnot, the burritos come in a more-than-manageable "small" and a Nerf football-sized "regular." – Jess Harvell, Baltimore City Paper
- As I entered the air-conditioned bliss of California Tortilla (Cal Tort as some call it), I was greeted by a wave of tantalizing smells. Situated across from Oriole Park, California Tortilla is clean and colorful and has plenty of seating. The walls of the well-lit interior are scattered with juvenile humor, generally involving hot sauce of some kind...The fajitas were quick, spicy and tasty; the hot sauce was killer. – Dan Eberle, Baltimore Sun
- ...what California Tortilla has done to their Americanized version of Mexican food is fantastic! There are many burritos to choose from, and the best is by far the Screamin Burrito; you have to try it before you die! – Juan A., Yelp
