We went back home via Sarasota from Siesta Key beach and stopped for dinner here. The service was great (she led us through choices, told us about daily deals and delivered our counter ordered food and beverages). We ate the special of the day with Taco Tuesday and also enjoyed their choice of mild, medium, and hot sauces. A great... More

We showed up here after a long day/night on the beach. They were very friendly even thought it was 20 minutes until closing time. The food was awesome!

Ingredients are probably not the best and while the price is ok it is really just a chain effort at something like a taqueria. Lacks atmosphere, no margaritas, just not very good.

The lines are usually pretty long here, especially at peak times. Tacos, chips and queso .. enchiladas, chimichangas flotadas etc Familiar, comfort food served in a fast paced environment. You won't be disappointed.

Taco Tuesday has become a tradition in our workplace, all thanks to this place! Convenient location near downtown Sarasota and across the street from the hospital, Tijuana Flats lured us in with their Taco Tuesday special... Two tacos, chips, sauce and a drink?! Heck yes!! The food is always made to order and we haven't had to make a complaint... More
