I been there once for lunch

I saw this place and walk in for lunch and apply for work, the place itself is really nice that I felt I would like to work there, everything new and clean and the food was good and at good price... a little Americanized and no Spanish speaking staff but still good.

A great place to go for lunch! We had great service and the fish tacos are very good. Also love the basket of chips and salsa. This is close to my work so I go here often. They offer a very affordable lunch menu. Other favorites include the chicken enchiladas, chicken tacos and the tostada grande.

It had been about 2 yrs since eating at La Flama and we were very pleasantly surprised they had moved down the street into a 2-level, upscale restaurant. Veggie fajitas grilled to perfection. Chicken enchiladas w rice/beans topped with their excellent salsa. Enchiladas verde-lots of green sauce!

Always have good service and good food. Can be expensive but they have value meals and a la carte items. Way better food than the Azteca locations throughout Quad Cities

Poor service and the food wasn't authentic. Much better when they were in the former location, but the quality went down after they moved down the avenue.

It is good but pricey. There are many family owned Mexican restaurants in the QC that provide quality food at lower prices

Recently, had lunch there and really enjoyed the entire meal. Service was quick. Atmosphere was understated but very pleasant. Menu is typical of mex restaurant here.

La Flama is a Mexican restaurant that never disappoints. Prices are very competitive. Service is prompt and friendly. Very clean. Plenty of seating keeps prime time wait to a minimum. Food is very good, many great menu choices. Love the chicken burritos. Plenty of drink specials throughout the week, can't beat the 26 oz. margaritas. The owners are always there... More
