Not only do we have California Tortilla within walking distance of  the University of Maryland, Baltimore, campus, but we also have a Salsarita's dishing out burritos, tacos, and the like. While CalTort has set fillings for its Tex-Mex offerings, Salsarita's follows more of a Subway or Chipotle model and allows one to choose a receptacle (taco, burrito, nachos, quesadilla, salad) and fill it with a choice of protein (chicken, ground beef, shrimp, steak, pork) or veggies, choice of beans (black or refried) and any number of other accoutrements (several salsas, guac, sour cream, cheese, cilantro, lettuce), making their food completely customizable. For example, the other day I ordered a small burrito with black beans, rice, sautéed vegetables, sour cream, shredded cheese, mild salsa, guacamole, and cilantro and received a rather mammoth package of all of the above. And it was pretty good.

In the past, when I've ordered items with meat (particularly the taco salad), not only was the meat tender and properly seasoned, but the portion was more than generous. In fact, I've had to ask for half as much meat because I just can't eat that much at lunchtime.

It's a good thing when one's biggest complaint is that the portions are too generous, right?
