Enjoy this Mexican restaurant especially on Taco Tuesday where you basically get a free soda with two tacos and a pile of nacho chips. Service is decent, including bringing out your meal. When they aren't super busy they are usually very attentive on refilling your beverages, unless you sit outside and then not so much. If you run out of chips (which is rare) you can ask for more. On Thursdays you can get a burrito with basically a free soda as that day's promotion. Their multi-sauce bar is also pretty good with a wide selection. And the food is good beyond the taco and burrito I mentioned, with not too much spice. Prices are very reasonable and there is a lot of tables to sit and enjoy the couple TVs.

I visited Tijuana Flats a Tex-Méx restaurant. Is kind of semi fast food. You order the food at the cashier station, but the food and any additional service is tendered by a waitress. The restaurant has a particular decoration, colorful with different symbols that represent part of the Mexican and Tex-Méx culture. Waitress were very servicial and food was good and very typical of a chain restaurant. Prices were also very affordable. I will suggest this place instead of going to Taco Bell.

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 of hot sauces and the self serve bar. They have gluten free options.

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.
