I had a typical Mexican meal of pulled pork tacos with beans and salsa. The service left a bit to be desired. Coffee arrived with lip stick stains already on the cup. There was no silverware or cream. I finally got a new cup of coffee, but by the time that I got the cream and spoon the coffee was... More

On a recent dinner visit we enjoyed our margaritas and guacamole to start but the entrees were a disappointment. The meat in both the duck and beef tacos was dry and the soft shells were greasy. The cheesecake flan was innovative but not really special. Service was friendly and attentive but the food was ordinary.

We went to Flo right around noon on New Year's Day. It was pretty crowded, but we only had to wait about 15 minutes for a party of 5. How thoughtful to have coffee available for people waiting to be seated! We all had different dishes, and all of us enjoyed it immensely. The prices were great and the selection... More

Went around 11:30 am and had immediate seating. I had white chicken chile soup. Wonderful spicy but not over powering. Chile had corn, black beans,carrot and lots of cheese. The salad was great the ranch dressing was not bottled but fresh.service excellent.

Word of advice, you better show up at this place really hungry as the portions are ginormous! I had the skirt steak eggs Benedict and man was it good, but it would have taken me a week to eat it! Great service and fun atmosphere, though being an old hag, I found the music a tad loud and overpowering!

Be prepared to wait so don't go if you're STARVING! There was a vintage shop right outside that we went to while we waited, but it only took 20 to 30 minutes to be seated. Great atmosphere, service and the food was delicious. They have traditional mexican dishes. I don't remember the name of what I got, but it included... More

The food was VERY good & fresh! I appreciate that they have vegan options. Flo has a nice vibe, and it's a good place to stop for lunch, even dinner. Check it out!
