Last night we ate at Super Tortas in Hollywood for the first time. I thought the chicken torta I ordered was pretty good--I liked the way the shredded chicken breast was seasoned and for breast, was actually pretty tender. The bread was also good and the sandwich itself is fairly large. They include avocado, lettuce, and a side of peppers. I thought the sandwich could have used a little more chicken though, especially for the price. At a little over six dollars for a sandwich, I thought they were a little skimpy on the chicken. My boyfriend had the rib-eye torta; this one tasted okay. Thought the meat was flavorful but a bit chewy. Very friendly and fast service at this place and a good choice for a quick bite to eat.

I also had a chicken torta at Tall Pines in Monrovia; this was probably one of the best chicken sandwiches I've had. Unlike Super Tortas, the chicken is more of a large chicken cutlet which has been nicely seasoned and grilled; the bread was buttered and toasted which was a great touch, and they give you plenty of lettuce and tomatoes. The price was right too...$5.95 and included a side of french fries.
