More like a bar than a restaurant, but the tacos were all great and the beer list is OUTSTANDING!

Mahi fish tacos so good. Chips and salsa tasty and very fresh.

We have been here a few times and each time was great... Worth a stop and I will be back again.

It is a typical cantina. They have a salsa bar, but you wait for chips. Food is slow. It is beer and wine only. The wine is really bitter leaving a bite to the back of your throat. Needed the margarita mix to soften it up.

If you haven't been to Old Torrance area of the South Bay, Tortilla Cantina is a really nice find. Good food and drinks. Awesome Happy Hour specials. Tons of monitors showing sports. Lots of windows to look out at the people walking downtown. Very cool place.

I wanted to really enjoy this place & while the food was great the service seemed as if the servers weren't really attentive or cared whether or not it was your first time dining there (even after they were told it had been our first time there). The restaurant wasn't too busy either. Overall not sure if I would return or not. If I did I definitely wouldn't expect top notch service but just enjoy my time there while I eat.

Loved that I was able to make a reservation on-line for 15 people. The restaurant called to confirm the reservation and asked if I had any special requests! Our server was sweet and very patient, crowd in the restaurant was lively and the prices were reasonable. Pretty big menu selection and to die for happy hour items! Hint: Bacon & Date Chimichangas.. woooooowww They could do better with a full bar, but if you love beer, they have an amazing selection. Also saw that they show the UFC Fights, that's a big plus in my book!

Great service from the bartender. Food was fantastic. Their taco selection is really interesting and doesn't disappoint. The salsas at the salsa bar were great. We went on a Monday so it was quiet but I can imagine this place gets pretty busy and loud at times.
