I love Tijuana Flats. Between the different locations in Sarasota, I probably eat there at least once every two weeks. The food is great, the service is friendly and to-go orders are always correct. I love the blackened chicken taco salad and the ground beef tacos. It's an excellent casual option that will fill you up and leave you satisfied.

My wife and I have eaten at this Tijuana Flats location three times and we are always happy with the food, atmosphere and prices. You are greeted with a smile, the staff is very attentive and there are always tables open. The Mexican style food is delicious and served in large portions.

Very interesting little shop the inside and outside the corps will keep you occupied while you're waiting for your food I got the beef burrito super-sized more than a more than a meal guaranteed with little bit of tortilla chips on the side well worth your time and the money

Love this place. I'm not normally a fan of chain restaurants but I love this place. I've been to several other Tijuana Flats and this one offers bigger servings, better service and has never let me down. Give them a try. You won't be disappointed!

Stopped for lunch on our way back from some sight seeing in Sarasota, and was happily surprised. Good menu, lots of choices, excellent prices and the food was really really good.

This place was great! The food was delicious, and portions were appropriate. There's a hot sauce bar with multiple choices and varieties for those sauce lovers! Definitely a favorite!

A refreshing place after being in the hospital across the street. Wide selection on the menu and very reasonably priced. And lots of home made hot sauces to satisfy everyone's taste. Loved it!
