Every time I eat here I look forward to coming back. This visit was on Taco Tuesdaze. Two very large tacos, chips and soda for a special price. At the sauce bar I chose the Georgia Peach and Vidalia Onion hot sauce. Delicious! Attentive staff got my free drink refill for me. Left full and happy. Will return soon.

We had excellent service, as well as excellent food here. The tacos were delicious and you could tell the salsa, meat, everything was fresh. We will definitely stop by here again on our next trip! Thank you.

I have just recently been introduced to Tijuana Flats. During my stay in Gainesville I saw a sign for Tijuana Flats. I was most delighted. The food was as I expected. The price was reasonable as always. This restaurant had a nice little outdoor dining area.. It was a beautiful evening for eating out and there were no bugs of... More

Great Thursday deals and I love hot sauce and love the variety the have. Definite highlight for me. Plenty of food not much selection which makes it quick and simple.

On our trip home from St Pete Beach, we stopped here to eat. This is such a fun place to eat with funky decor. All the staff were super friendly, helpful, and very attentive with a smile at all times! Food was excellent. We had a mixture of burrito bowls, chimichangas, and quesadillas. We really wish we had one back... More

At first glance this restaurant feels like a fast food joint. DO NOT let it fool you! You stand in line and pay at the counter but after that you have a seat and your food is delivered to you with a smile. Obviously the food is Mexican. Everything tasted fresh and made to order. You can even have a... More

My husband and I have been eating here fairly regularly for the past 5 months. About the fifth or sixth visit it occurred to me how on top of it they always seem to be. They balance efficiency with friendliness. Something with which many sit down restaurants in this town seem to struggle. The food has always been hot and... More
