“Great neighborhood stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

My wife and I stopped in for dinner. The employees were all very helpful and attentive. The food was reasonably priced ($21) for the two of us. Both our meals were very good with fresh ingredients. The staff refilled our drinks and checked to see if we needed anything else.

As I read in another review, this is somewhat similar to a Taco Bell except the food is MUCH better and a better environment. A little more expensive but you get what you pay for.
We will certainly return.

“Fresh Food with Great Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

I've been a loyal customer ever since they opened their doors. It is conveniently located right next to Trader Joes [better yet, its a few minutes from my house!]. Tijuana Flats is a better version of Taco Bell. This restaurant has a really cool atmosphere, great for all ages. They have a sauce bar and wonderful customer service. Although everything that I've eaten there is good, I usually go with the hard tacos [which are a nice size]. In the warmer months, they even offer outdoor seating and some local music. Keep up the good work guys!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Fresh fast food atmosphere. Outdoor seating is fun if you don't mind being close to a street. Sauce bar and good descriptions.

“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Great food, great service!

The opening day is usually a scene of chaos and less then memorable food. My visit here exceeded my expectations. The manager greeted us tat the door, explained the menu, and escorted us to the counter. A helpful employee offered us beverages while we were looking over the menu, and yet another employee explained the hot sauce bar.

This is a good choice for a quick casual meal with quality food.

“Excellent fresh tex Mex food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

My friend and her 7 year old son and I ate at TF on a Tuesday for TacoTuesday. It was very busy but they are very efficient in the restaurant, cook the fresh food quickly and make it however you like it. Excellent food, refills are done quickly and really nice staff. Great for specials on Tuesday's and Thursday's. Cheap prices for the amount of food you get, awesome hot sauce bar and free refills on fountain drinks and tea! It is next door to Trader Joes which makes it even better for a lunch stop before stocking up on groceries!
