Delish food!

I'd never been to one of these & was thrilled to find out they don't use MSG & everything's fresh & natural. Very well priced for tasty food.

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!

More along the line of fast food, but the food was tasty and served quickly. Many choices on the menu that you can order your way no problem.

Inexpensive and satisfying dinner in a cool(wall murals are awesome) environment, great for a weeknight or while out and about. I am obsessed with the taco salad! not your average greasy ground beef/crispy corn shell/iceberg lettuce/shredded cheddar cheese mixture, Tijuana Flats is a fresh tasting shell(I opt for while wheat) stuffed with spring mix and topped with your choice of...

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!
