Good Place To Eat For A Low Budget Date Night

This location attracts a large lunch crowd but surprisingly a small dinner crowd. My husband and I stopped in for dinner on throwback Thursday. If you like eating outside, the patio area was shaded by the building during this time of day. The service was exceptional and the food quality was as... read more

Inexpensive, healthy food. Fun spot. Generous portions. Had a meatless bowl full of rice, pico, guac, beans for under $7. Oh ya.

Chain tex-mex that can't decide if it wants to be a restaurant or a fast food walk up. You are seated and then walk to a counter to order and hope you understand all the menu items. Have to go to a "works bar" set up against the back wall to get taco fillings and sauces. Food is decent, waitress... More

This location in particular went beyond my expectations. They were very helpful with my order and even came outside to find me when my order was ready. The food was exactly wheat I expected...great!

This is possibly the worst restaurant I have ever eaten in. The music is loud and head banging in nature. The restaurant smelled dank. The salsa verde is a thin almost tasteless mess. The chicken enchiladas were inedible. They were a gooey mass with cold chicken in the center. I was asked what kind of salsa I wanted with it... More

I had never been to this chain before but it was just okay. The service was great but the food was just mediocre.

Not really sure how they do it, but they always have the most courteous and efficient employees. Food is always very good. Hats off to all employees and upper level management for running a great chain.

My description of this restaurant is like a Mexican sports bar without TVs all over. It provides a good quick Mexican meal, and the servers are super--very helpful, nice to you, and great with their recommendations. A mostly younger crowd was there when we were, and it looked like "old home week" with lots of folks known by the servers.... More

This is a well-run Tijuana's- always clean and always great service! The employees are friendly and helpful. We go for the tacos and salads- very fresh and well-priced. If you have never been to a Tijuana's, you order at counter and they bring it to your table. They have a great hot sauce bar.

Very consistent, both service and food. This is the best store, considering everything. Parking is a little tricky so don't attempt a visit during mealtimes. Great prices and excellent food!
