We ordered takeout from this restaurant. I tasted two of the dishes: shrimp enchilada and chile relleno / enchilada with beef. They were okay but kind of tasteless to me. I guess we are used to Tex/Mex cuisine. The quantities are about right. Combos include...More

Tortilla Flats features authentic Mexican traditional dishes along with special weekends featuring regional Mayan and Yucatan fare. A recurring favorite is The Mole Celebration, all the creations are thoroughly researched and special spices sought out by owner, Cheryl Marquez.

Nothing like a dinner at Tortilla Flats! We've been a dozen times, at least! Several delightfully flavored molés are always available, but owner Cheryl Marquez makes sure to add even more kinds of molé during her periodic molé festivals. I love the Original Margarita (special...More

I had been to Tortilla Flats many times since moving to the area in 1977. It has always been a higher quality Mexican eatery. However the last few times my friends and I frequented Tortilla Flats we found the food just average. Perhaps we hit...More

Love to meet friends for lunch and try their latest specialties. Great Margaritas and very friendly staff make it an enjoyable time. The decor is particularly interesting, too.
