And what better way to celebrate than to come to Cal Tort for lunch, or dinner, and we will give you a coupon for a FREE fabulously delicious taco. The coupon can be used from May 6th- May 13th. The tacos are fabulously delicious year round.

(Bonus Holiday Joke: What do you call 4 people standing in quicksand? Quatro Cinco. Get it? It’s the best I could come up with on short notice.)

See you on the 5th!

My absolute favorite special of all time, Street Tacos, is back! (You English majors are trying to figure out if I said that correctly, aren’t you?)
Street Tacos are 3 mini white corn tortillas filled with the most incredible meats and sauces. The three tacos are: Korean Steak BBQ, Carnitas Verde and Havana Chicken. You can get 3 of the same kind or mix and match – we have the technology.

Street Tacos start May 4th, so come on by and try them. They’re the best special ever.

Mother’s Day is almost here and a very funny conversation that I had with some of my friends (are you surprised I have friends?) got me to thinking about how different it is being a mother now than it was when I was a kid. With that said, I’d like to share just a few of my childhood mother memories.



  • My mother didn’t make us wear those new fangled things called seatbelts–she let us bounce around the car unfettered. (My husband said that sometimes his mother let him lie on the dashboard while she drove. I think that might have been a little excessive, even for those days.)
  • In elementary school, my mother let me make Jiffy Pop by myself. If you’re not familiar with Jiffy Pop, you cooked it over an open flame and shook it with a metal, heat-conducting handle.
  • When I got home from school, my mother made me go directly outdoors with the warning, “Don’t come home until supper!” (I once sold all the vegetables from our neighbor’s garden. She paid closer attention after that.)
  • When it rained out, my mother made me wear plastic bread bags on my feet. (How much were boots?)
  • My mother used to bake all of my birthday cakes with pennies (taken directly out of her pocket) hidden in them. Yum.

Looking back, my mom was nothing if not fun. And now that I’m a mother I appreciate her more than ever. So do me a favor and give your mom an extra big hug (or better yet, a Street Taco Trio) for me on Mother’s Day—she deserves it. And if you have any childhood memories of your mother (or father!) that you’d like to share, please email me at I’d love to hear them.

Don’t forget, from now until the end of the month, if you make a catering order and say “Fiesta!,” you’ll get a free Quart of Queso or Guacamole for every 20 people in your party. Just call our catering specialist Melissa at 1-855-225-8678 and tell her the secret password – and do a little swivel hip dance when you say it. C’mon!

On that note, I hope you have a wonderful and California Tortilla Catering-worthy Cinco de Mayo, Mother’s Day and Graduation!
