We stopped here after leaving the Yankees/Ray's spring game right before closing. The staff was pleasant and didn't get upset that we came in. Food was great. We were not rushed and didn't feel like the place was being closed around us. Service was great.

The food and service were excellent! They have many different hot sauces at a serve yourself area that run the gamut from barely tickle your tongue to melt it! With plenty of choices in between. You order at a window (inside) and they come around...More

The food is good. We got the burrito special of the day x 2 which is probably what we would've gotten anyway and 2 kids quesadillas meals. The food took forever and we all thought it was great. BUT, I have to comment on the...More

During our week vacation in Tampa, we found Tijuana Flats and went back 3 times. There's a variety of food, hot sauces to try, the chips were amazing and the staff outgoing. We wish they were in Colorado!
