After a trip across the Sierra, we were looking forward to a great Mexican meal. This used to be one of our favorite restaurants, but no longer. My enchilada dinner was barely lukewarm. It was taken back to the kitchen for reheating and brought back a few minutes later at the same temperature. I am pretty insistent that hot food... More

One of our favorite stops in Placerville. I heard about this restaurant when I lived down in the Bay Area. Everyone said. "If you are passing through Placerville, Stop at Tortilla Flats. Great Food". Easy in and out for the Tahoe crowd and skiers. Now I live in Placerville and it is still a favorite spot. While we normally sit... More

I've eaten here several times and have never been disappointed! They serve authentic Mexican food with several special accompliments. Had a wonderful Carnitas plate with properly slow cooked pork in an apple sauce. Looking for Mex in this town and you can't go wrong.

We are locals, and we love this place. The young staff are very well trained and attentive. You are given a choice of chips & salsa or a cheese quesadilla as a complimentary appetizer. Margaritas are only $3 Monday through Friday, all day! The owners told us one of the first things they did when they bought the place was... More

Food is okay, not great. We were served an overcooked meal that required knives to cut through the enchiladas and beans that were so dry they were falling apart; the two meals cooked this way were clearly inedible but still served. The waitress rolled her eyes and mumbled "okayyyyy" under her breathe out of irritation when we said "no" to... More

Sopes... Grease pucks. Rice is deep fried. Sub par refried beans. Enchiladas very good. Staff couldnt tell me anything about the menu. All were new. Manager owner was unapproachable when asking about the food. It seemed we were insulting her personally when we spoke of the food and service.. We brought our check up to counter because server never picked... More

Love the atmosphere and food ...we go here frequently and are never disappointed. They offer a great variety, and the portions are huge. We love to take friends who visit us to this restaurant, and then treat them to the tour of Main Street. Scrumptious!

We checked reviews, and they're mixed (some terrible ones on Yelp!), but decide to eat here every time we're in Placerville. The menu is awesome - so many entrees and combinations of food to try. We';re always absolutely delighted when our food arrives - it's beautifully arranged, delicous and the portions are huge! Service has been good, too. When I... More

I have gone here since I was a child and they have a few dishes that remind me of childhood that I get a hankering for every once in a while. Problem is...it's not the best food but I still like it for a trip down memory lane.
