Really good mexican food... sometimes

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... read 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...

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

Nice Mexican restaurant with a good menu. Cocktails are good..my only issue is that the food is not consistently good.

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
