If you're looking for authentic Mexican food, this is not it, however, the food was good and the staff was friendly. It has a nice atmosphere and the ceiling tiles kept my kids busy while waiting.

We always enjoy eating at this location. The food is always delicious, and they have a wide variety of beer from which to choose. Service is hit and miss as far as friendliness goes, but everything else is good to go!

Good place to go for lunch. Service is pretty good depending on customer volume. My first visit I was expecting typical Mexican fare and recieved something completely different. With a little expectation adjustment, we did enjoy the food. Having never eaten a ChimmyChanga, I ordered and was pleasently surprised. My friend ordered the burrito and said it was good. There...

My husband and I come in here all the time. He always orders two bangin chicken chimichangas (order it... It'll change your life). The staff is great, super helpful and friendly. The queso and chips are so good I go through withdrawals. Pretty much everything there is a win. Love this place.

We found this the Restaurant through Tripadvisor . I can really recommend it. Chill atmosphere, friendly staff and the food arrived quickly at the table! You order at a counter , and the food comes to the table where you sit . Loved it ! We will definitely be back!

Stopped in for lunch at one of our favorite chain restaurants. The food in Ft. Walton store was fresh and delicious. Service was excellent; never been disappointed at Tijuana Flats. Just wish they were in more locations.

A slightly different concept that you will enjoy. The food is great and the portions are huge. Come hungry and leave stuffed!

We went with family that live in fort Walton and it did not disappoint. We are from Texas and it was up to our standards for Mexican food. Tacos were good beef was not over seasoned and lettuce and cheese were fresh. Queso was good. Wife had nachos and loved them. They have many hot sauce to choose from, wife... More
