This location has always been on point with their food. Some places are hit or miss . This is very good. Although staff does change quite a bit. Still they keep it good. Plus the hot sauce bar is simply awesome.. All restaurants should have this option. Well with Mexican food types anyways.. usually quiet and not too busy and... More

We've been regulars there. Supper tonight was marvy. Fresh, hot stuff hot and cold, well, cold. Fast service. More meat filling in tacos than usual. Sauces remain great. Had a small guac tonight and mixed a container of the hotter sauce in. Tasted great. Bill is low but quality is high.

This is my favorite of the local locations, maybe because it is closest to home, but also because the staff here is awesome. The food is great all of the time, but Taco Tuesday and Flaskback Thursday are the discount days for tacos and burritos. Yumm... good thing it's a Thursday!

I had one chicken & one beef hard shell taco & they were both very good. Great selection of sauces for the tacos as well. Service was excellent. Quick to get my food & the staff was friendly & kept my drink full. Will definitely return.

This was my first time at a Tijuana Flats and it was a memorable one. The line was long during busy lunch, yet was moving quickly. Indoor and outdoor seating and the tables were kept clean and turnover was fast. I head the buffalo chicken burrito and it was deliciously prepared. Service from the two cashiers was quick and well... More

Great Food! Great atmosphere! I loved everything about this place. I love the tacos and I think it's so cool how they have the art deco on the walls with the multicolored lights.

This was the worst chicken burrito I have ever had. 90% of it was the tortilla, very little cheese, loads of onions ( probably because they are cheap) and six pieces of chicken. At a cost of almost seven dollars. What a rip off. In addition, three times one of the "waitresses" asking if she could take our plates before... More

Don't know much about Mexican fast food, but these folks have a lot of choices, lots of sauces and good size drinks. We've been here three times and twice I've ordered the two burritos for $9.99 and had lots of food which was quite tasty. Real beef and chicken, not just a lot of lettuce and refried beans. Free drink... More
