I love the food at this place. I am a little scared to make a review as then the word may get out - even more - how amazing this place truly is. The ambience is fun and the food is super great "eats" without breaking the wallet. The street tacos (potato especially) are fabulous. I also find the fajitas... More

Beer was beer ... could have been colder ...this seemed like a "regulars" corner bar which was nice ...we had the tequitos appetizer and it was good enough...we would probably stop again for a drink

This was my second trip the the Tortilla Cantina, the first time I stopped here with a friend, because the Red Car Brewery around the corner was not open. Liked it both times, the food is good the beer selection is vast. Nice servers, seemed to be a lot of locals in for lunch.

This spot in Old Town Torrance is surprisingly good. I recommend the Cantina burrito. Free chips and salsa are available and their beer selection is really good. Great place to watch your favorite game on one of their many flat screens.

What I liked: Good beer selection & served cold. The service was also both friendly and professional. Also tried the Guacamole Appetizer, which was very good. The portions were also big. What I didn't particularly like: I had the Fajitas... There must have been a special on onions and peppers with their supplier because there were plenty of both. However,... More

Not a bad place. Our server gave me a sample of a beer she thought I wouldn't like and BOOM she was right. After that she was a little moody but I'm easy. I would go again for sure. Food was very good.

Have been by this place many times, and they seem to always have a good crowd we thought let's try it, but I guess it is for the drinks. I don't take much stock in reviews where the only complaint is the service , because that can happen to anyone, and sometimes you feel the service was bad even when... More

Came here for lunch with some co-workers. They had a few tables outside which was nice because we got to enjoy the nice sunny day. Our server was nice and didn't forget about us even though we were the only people outside. Service was prompt. The food was good. I had a shrimp quesadilla which was almost like a pizza.... More
