The owner has some great recipes for sauce's that we've never had anywhere else and is so tasty. Our favorite are the Red Pepper Enchiladas, yummy! Also, the Chile Rellano is... read more

Nicely done variety of Mexian cooking. Not heavy on the spices, but very flavorable. Small in size, big on creative dish.

It's not just the margaritas. Really. It's all really great. The food is great, the service is crazy attentive, and it's adorable. For 25 years, it's been the best. And all that time, the margaritas never change. To die for.

My food was good but expensive for my taste. $17+ for crab enchiladas without rice or beans. The strawberry margarita was excellent. After the server took our order didn't see him again until it was time to bring our bill. No drink refills were offered.

This restaurant was great. The food was superb, the margarita was made with fresh made sour mix (and strong too) and the staff was very nice. We lucked out and went on a Tuesday when they serve their special tapas menu in addition to their normal menu. (monday and tuesdays) The decoration and ambiance added to the wonderful meal. Wish...

This place is a regular spot for my husband and I to get our fix of authentic Mexican. Their dessert specials are always unique and delicious. The service has always been great and they accommodated our baby.

The food was tasty but expensive. The service was okay. Parking in this area can be a major challenge.

I love this restaurant and the food and service is always amazing! The margaritas are also top notch! While there can be a wait on weekends or holidays (arrive early if you don't want to wait), eating her is always well worth the wait. I will even stop here on my way home from the airport or a trip to... More

Tortilla Flats runs specials several times a year and they are always delicious! This past weekend it was a Tamale menu that included about 10 different tamales. I had the New Mexico Hatch chile tamale - the masa was creamy and moist, the filling was divine. I've also had burritos, enchiladas and other mainstays that are solid+. We're lucky that... More
