Ordered a burrito. Tortilla was like raw dough. Refried beans had been sitting long enough for a "skin" to form on them. Unable to add onions and peppers because they appeared extremely overcooked. Lettuce not fresh. Spicy salsa not spicy and had an off putting...acidic flavor. Had to request sour cream three times. A couple of bites in and gave up. I tossed it in the trash.More

I live in Minnesota. Found Tomatillo's when stayed at Fairfield Inn across the street several years ago. Think of their soft shell tacos often. See them make it. Know eating healthy. So when I get to Florida a couple times a year, make a special...trip to Tomatillo's even though I'm usually staying in Fort Myers. So worth the drive.More

At a glance I thought we had walked into a Subway sandwich shop, the case of ingredients looked similar. However these were ingredients to build your own taco, burrito, chalupa, bowl, salad, etc., and the ingredients were very good for the most part. My only...complaints were that the salsa lacked body and flavor, and they didn’t serve chopped onions, only green onions or scallions. I enjoyed a bean burrito while my husband had a steak burrito, both were very good...and were from Texas, so we know Tex-Mex!More

Downgrading previous review because originally, restaurant did NOT tell customers that their refried beans contained LARD and although not strict vegan or vegetarian, was very disappointed to find this out when they finally started alerting customers a couple years ago because I avoid red meat...and pork for health reasons. Unfortunately, although promising to eventually start using lard-free beans, restaurant has never followed through. Every other Mexican Restaurant in area uses fresh, lard-free beans, so can't understand why they haven't changed to healthier refried beans. You can even buy lard-free beans in the can from Publix, so this is not an uncommon product. Vegetarians and vegans beware! The bean burritos contain LARD. I stopped going to this restaurant because of the situation.More

On our way to Tampa from Miami we found this great lunch spot. The staff is so very nice and the food was excellent. A casual place to sit inside or outside. Very clean and reasonable prices too. I highly recommend you stop here for...lunch or dinner. Off of Interstate I75 exit 193. Stop here -you will be glad you did -great for families with children too.More

I looked up this type of restaurant close 2 where I was working and it was in the perfect place right @ Jacaranda Blvd and the freeway on my way home so in the right place @ the right time. I ordered one of the...dishes call the Junkyard bowl with a combination of meats and veggies really good and I also got a steak quesadilla 2 go as well. This place has more of a typical outdoor sit in with a few tables on the inside but they really chose the right location so hopefully they'll be around 4 awhile.More
