Not bad for a lunch stop. Try the super wet burrito!! Too many sauces to pick from. A couple of choices each of mild/med/hot would be plenty.

I eat here with family at least once per month. The food is always fresh and tasty. The staff takes extra care to welcome all the guests and ensure they are served quickly. They also follow-up with guests in the dining room to refill (for free) drinks, clean tables and ensure that everything is good. They have a good variety... More

It's a funky little Mexican restaurant that has the most amazing food.. I love the chicken and bean Flautas.. Be sure and get some of their salsa cause it is the best.. Everything here is good and the people that work here are always friendly.

If you've been to one chain Tex-Mex place, you've been to them all. Tijuana Flats isn't any different. You wait in line, order, and they bring you the food. I wish they had trays for the drinks...it is difficult to carry 4 drinks and hold my 4 year old's hand. In my opinion, the music was a tad too loud.... More

I get my beef salad and can eat it everyday! It's way busy during the lunch hours...definitely order ahead to be a little quicker. Today salad doesn't look as nice as yesterday.

Was visiting our Tampa office last week. My colleagues took us to Tijuana Flats for "Burrito Thursday." It did not disappoint. The burrito was delicious, the perfect size and served with chips on the side. Enjoyed the hot sauce bar. I hope to return to Tijuana Flats the next time I am in Tampa.

Tijuana Flats never disappoints and I'm a diehard 'Taco Tuesday' fan! I'm also a "Flathead" member so that I can get special alerts when a store runs a local special. Great mexican food, good prices, relaxed atmosphere!

Went in and the place was very busy. Food came out as ordered in acceptable time especially with the crowd. Attendants came around quickly to clean tables and offer re-fills on your drinks. Staff was competent and polite. Decent meal and I would return to dine here again.

For a fast food "southwest" style restaurant, this one is my favorite. The hard shell tacos are great, as well as the burritos. The star is the table with many, many selections of sauces for use on the food. A fun place.

This is one of the restaurants we missed when we moved away from Florida. The vegetarian/bean chimichanga is huge, cheap and delicious. The service is always so friendly and attentive...that and huge salsa bar top off this fast casual eatery as one of our favorites, highly recommend.
