I visited California Tortilla for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. The menu offers a nice variety of food - burritos, bowls, salads, etc. The children's menu was also good for most kids. We ordered a child's burrito and two bowls. I really...More

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.

Another chain tortilla place, hard to keep track of them all in Bethesda these days. They all try to seperate themselves from the others with little success, a tortillla is a tortilla afterall and most do them reasonably well including this establishment. You really can't...More

Ok, if you're looking for fancy food, go elsewhere. If you are looking for fresh, tasty and well priced tex-mex, this is a great place in a good location.
