Good Mexican, Great Specials

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... read more

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

The atmosphere here is fantastic - pretty restaurant - features a rather exclusive menu and special offerings. Innovative cuisine and integrity at all times. Great place for a special occasion - try to visit at off-peak hours if possible as it is popular and rather small environment. Delicious specials - your favorite menu items are dependable and exciting at the... More

Good selection of Mexican style food. they have very good specials and a great variety of Margaritas. Limited wine selection. Can be crowded and noisy at dinner. Good service and tasty all you can eat chips & salsa. A bit pricey for some items.

As for the staff, we had a different experience from the previous review. We were promptly seated and everyone was friendly. We had to wait for another party and the staff was understanding, brought drinks and took our order only after we were ready. We picked a table beneath the speaker, but the waiter graciously turned down the volume for... More

Though I will give Tortilla Flats Restaurant kudos for the food the staff there rates poorly for congeniality. First time there they refused to seat us because our whole party had not arrived. Second time there we were asked to leave because they needed the table for people who were waiting. I personally find it rude for a staff to... More
