Good service, but the chips were stale and I'm pretty sure my chimichanga came straight from Sysco. Rather a disappointing lunch.

Stopped at this place at about 6pm on a Friday night on our way to Kittery. We were promptly seated and given menus, which were quite extensive. We have lived in Colardo and are used to eating Mexican cuisine on a regular basis, both at home and out. My wife selected tamales which came very dry and unappealing. I had... More

Tortilla Flat is a very good Mexican Restaurant in the East Deering section of Portland. The menu is extensive and the food very nicely prepared. I particularly enjoy their Fajitas and Enchiladas. The atmosphere is very nice and the service is good.

We love going to Tortilla Flats. On a nice day there is a large screened in deck to enjoy, our favorite place to sit. The menu includes quite a few appetizers, including excellent nachos and a layered dip we love. Portions are very generous, we always need boxes to take home leftovers. We also tried fried avocados with a creamy... More

So I'm still sitting here at the table, so very disappointed in this whole ordeal. Our server left and after a long wait some other person came and took our order, our water cups empty and as we sit here with finished food, our water glasses are still empty. The poor people across from us sat there for 15 minutes... More

It has been a few years since I have visited. I always ordered the chili relenos which I did tonight. They were not what I had expected but still okay. The recipe has changed. The service was good and my eating partner had the small flauta plate which was good.

Wow. Visited on a Friday night with friends recently. Unfortunately - the best part of the visit was the music playing too loudly in the bar area. Entrees were cold - and the quality of the food was simply awful. Nachos were stone cold - loaded with scallions and onions - chips were stale - and the Margaritas here are... More

Sat at the bar on 01/09/15 . The food was terrible and food was very undercooked. When pointed out they offered to do nothing about it , not even an excuse. The bartender was so inattentive she would have missed an elephant on the bar. Save your money and go elsewhere

In a city that is lacking in good, authentic Mexican food, Tortilla Flat is a decent option. I would particularly recommend the enchiladas and fajitas and the chicken mole.

I have frequented this establishment over the last 30 year and found it to have the best margaritas anywhere. They offer the standard version with the cloudy mix, but also offer the Classic Margarita made with real Jamaican Lime Juice and Triple Sec, producing a clear, clean cocktail that you will have you calling the waiter to bring you another...
