Will definitely be back

The lines are usually pretty long here, especially at peak times. Tacos, chips and queso .. enchiladas, chimichangas flotadas etc Familiar, comfort food served in a fast paced environment. You won't be disappointed.

Ingredients are probably not the best and while the price is ok it is really just a chain effort at something like a taqueria. Lacks atmosphere, no margaritas, just not very good.

Taco Tuesday has become a tradition in our workplace, all thanks to this place! Convenient location near downtown Sarasota and across the street from the hospital, Tijuana Flats lured us in with their Taco Tuesday special... Two tacos, chips, sauce and a drink?! Heck yes!! The food is always made to order and we haven't had to make a complaint... More

Once again they have out done themselves!! Awesome manager Tom took our to go order and not only was it ready when we arrived and delivered with speed and friendliness, he remembered that 3 weeks before we had requested a bottle of hot sauce that was on order and suprised us with it!! The food and staff never disappoint us!

My husband and I love this place and go at least once a week!! I love the black bean nachos piled high with fresh veggies, usually made by Michael, who is awesome!! My husband usually gets the megajuana piled with ground beef and fresh veggies! We have never been disappointed and have been going there since opening day!
