Get the tacos!!

This Florida chain is one of our favorites for a quick lunch. I always get "Dos tacos". They're really good ... tacos are crispy ... wide selection of sauces .... and they deliver to your table!! Can't wait to go again.

A restaurant which started on on of the U of F campuses, this place doesn't disappoint. The tacos a re huge and the sauces are great (I like the Thai sauce). We like the original Sarasota location on Tamiami Trail.

My favorite place to go when I am in Sarasota for business. Close location to the lab that I work at. Friendly and conscientious staff. My coke zero cup was never empty. I enjoy the wheat tacos and of course the chips and homemade salsa. Try the new Georgia Peach sauce!

by trying to emphasize the hot sauce the food loses importance to the people funding this restaurant. profitable I suppose, but not real tasty.

Vacation trip to Sarasota and this is a first time visit to this location. Excellent service, excellent food and fair price for great food. Chips and salsa were a wonderful bargain and the portions were incredible. Super deal on Taco Tuesday. This is a must stop when in Sarasota-whether vacation or a local you will enjoy.

Tijuana Flats is always consistent, never let's you down. My favorite thing on the menu is the Tijuana Trio, Cheese sauce, salsa, guacamole, with chips, many times a meal in itself.
