Thrillist features the best and brightest Mexican-style chains in the US, any of which could someday become the heirs to the Chipotle throne. Rightfully so, California Tortilla made it on the list!


Despite the name, California Tortilla is an East Coast chain that started in Bethesda, MD. But you won’t care where the hell it started, because no one beats this place in the hot sauce game, with¬†75+ options¬†(including searing-hot bottles like Dave’s Gourmet Insanity and Endorphin Rush Beyond). There’s also a spinnable prize wheel which can score you free chips and queso or dessert, and an addictive honey lime sauce that can be added to any burrito, bowl, salad, or taco.
