First visit to this location and was not impressed. The Classic Bowl was half full and had no visible cheese. When I asked for cheese, the server rolled her eyes and grudgingly put the tiniest amount on top. Definitely not worth almost $8.00 and won't be back.

Really great service, because we had an issue with our loyalty card. They were very nice and patient while we worked it out. They have a somewhat small menu, but they have tons of options for sauces. The place was nice and clean. We really enjoyed our visit, but the prices are a bit higher than fast food

Pretty good mexican style food. The chips and salsa were fantastic. Some of the chips seemed a bit more greasy than others. Maybe that batch sat in the fryer too long? I took them up and they made a new batch with no complaints at all. The staff is generally really friendly and they have a large selection of hot... More

Fresh food made right in front of you ... what more can you ask for? I've eaten here for years but have just recently taken my husband here for their burrito bowl. It was love at first bite. Delicious, healthy and quick. What more can you ask for? Plus, every time we eat there, their staff are cleaning tables, the... More

My wife and I went here with friends. Staff was great and the food was even better. Everything had a distinct flavor and quality. The burritos are massive and enough to last you all day. The wall -o - heat was fun and defiantly added to the experience. This is a must stop when in Maryland. We need one in... More

The menu looks good, the place is clean enough and prices are okay. What fell flat for me is the Southwest Salad. Ordering for the first time in the place was a little confusing since it was hard to tell what came on some things...all you see is a somewhat small picture and the staff had a hard time explaining...

I really used to like this place. Their food was pretty good and fast. They had a bunch of different hot sauces to try. But then Chipolte came to town. There's no comparison. The last time I was here the place was a little run down and not as clean as it once was. The hot sauce that they have... More

I wanted to let those, who are considering a Mexican meal quickie, of a fabulous salad one can get at Frederick's California Tortilla. The Southwestern Salad with the grilled chicken is excellent and EXTREMELY filling. Make certain that you ask for the honey-lime dressing on the side. I was a little concerned in getting this salad, since well California Tortilla... More

Food wise if you go here, you know what your getting. It's a gourmet taco place. Given that, they are some good tacos and burritos! The beef is excellent and the chicken is always moist. Service was accurate and quick and the restaurant was clean. Parking is limited though.

This is for BWI location between terminals A and B, since it seems to be the closest listed location. I was pretty surprised at how good it was. I'll give it 4 stars on the airport food scale, but it would pretty much hold its own against similar choices like Chipotle. What I liked about it was the variety of... More
