WILLIAMSBURG-The popular Mexican chain restaurant California Tortilla is opening a new location in Williamsburg.

On April 11, Midtown Row announced on social media that a California Tortilla will open in the mixed-use complex. An exact opening was not disclosed.

A California Tortilla was once located in New Town in Greater Williamsburg near the Regal Theatre in the space now occupied by Pisco 51. That California Tortilla closed in 2011, and, more recently, there have been rumors about California Tortilla returning to the area.

California Tortilla is a casual Mexican food establishment known for its burritos, tacos, fajitas, and quesadillas. According to the California Tortilla corporate website, there are nine other locations in Virginia, mostly in Northern Virginia. Midtown Row’s location would be the only California Tortilla on the Peninsula, with another on the Southside in Chesapeake.

Midtown Row also previously announced that another restaurant, Super Chix Chicken & Custard, will also soon open there.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
