Just driving by and saw the lot was full of cars... usually a good sign, and it was. Tasty Mexican dishes and a dozen plus sauce bar. Cookie dough flatuas were killer!

The basket with chips, guac, and salsa was a good value and tasty. Not impressed with the taste of the other food but it was cheap!

My wife and I had lunch at Tijuana Flats today. Today's special was a burrito, chips, and drink for $5.99. I am cheap, so I got the special. I got double meat (chicken) and double cheese (I'm also a pig) for only $1.50 extra. Then I added the all-you-can-eat queso for another $1.29. My wife ordered a vegetarian dish. I... More

The restaurant it self is very eclectic. We arrived before the dinner rush. The food was fresh and flavorful. The queso was so good. All the previous reviews were spot on. Definitely try this place if you are in FWB.

We arrived about 7pm to no wait but a rather full place. The 1st thing you notice is that this local spot just plain feels good, Grab a menu,find a seat, and when you are ready to order, you just go up to the front counter and do so. At the counter, we discovered a very very friendly and knowledgeable... More

We try to go here every time were are near one. Try the chicken flautas and definitely get chips and queso--they're are unlimited! The food is fresh, fast, and the service is excellent. The price is right too. Great for families as well.

We'd be happy to eat lunch here ANYTIME!! "Fast Casual," but with fabulous service. So happy that you can customize your burrito, etc., and not have it packed with rice and beans. The carnitas are FABULOUS!

Tijuana Flats is a fun dining experience. They have a wall full of different hot sauce with the best names. Although you order from a counter, a staff member brings out your food. Always freshly made and delicious. No need to get up after ordering, they will bring you refills. A diverse menu that also features low cal options. Get... More
