The service was decent, but our server waited until we had made our menu choices and then informed us that two of the three entree's were unavailable. When we finally got our food, after a long wait, it was not good. Our grandson's quesadilla was, in his words, "slimy and greasy". I ordered the Mini Taco Grande, which was not... More

I love Mexican food, and I love family run places. This was just not the place to go. Apparently Cascada is down the street, but we were hungry, it was mid afternoon, and we figured what the heck. Pfft, never again. Service was sluggish for an almost empty place, Tova our server took forever to pick up our check and... More

I'm warning you. Go any where but here. While the location is prime and the building looks inviting, don't be fooled. This is the worst restaurant I've eating at in years. An hour and fifteen minutes to get our food. The table next to us took an hour and a half. Half the things on the menu, they were out... More

My wife and I, and two friends from Carson City went to this place last night. It was probably the worst dining experience of my life. After 1 hour and 15 minutes at our table, and the table next to us still waiting after 1.5 hours, we both started asking what was going on. When my guest and I went... More

This was my first time there and from the start it didn't go well. The salsa served with the chips tasted like someone had pored salt into it. Not just a dash of it. More like a 1/2 teaspoon in the small bowl. When I asked the server if it was supposed to have salt in it she wasn't sure,... More

We were with friends who seem to go here often, so the staff was very friendly and service was excellent. We had a carnitas burrito which was excellent. The carnitas were crispy like I like them and there was much sauce and cheese on the outside. The best thing was the burrito was all meat, no rice and beans. We... More

What's up with tortilla flats? They use to have dinner specials, then they had a sewer problem that they denied and still sat people on the lower level, the last 2 times we were there we waited 15 minutes for a waitress and now you cannot pay at the table, instead you have to wait in a crowded entryway to...

Just as "CRW1028" noted, Tortilla Flats can be great Mexican... or so-so. There is no consistency in the quality/flavor of their fare. Roll-the-dice and try it, and you might be lucky to have the "good chef" and walk-away very pleased. If the dice come-up snake-eyes, you'll probably never go back. Margueritas are great and there's usually not a huge crowd... More

Pros: Parking available, plenty of seating, and the best choice of Mexican food. Would have to rate it as one of my highlights for the week from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe. Excellent service and food was even better !!! In this area ... Highly recommend.... !!!! Cons: They are not in Sioux Falls, Sd
