I love Tijuana Flats' tacos & salsa. However, this location is so slow. If you're unfortunate to be 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc in line, you're going to be there forEVER. Also, if you place an order for pickup, don't even think about getting there within 30 minutes - you WILL have to wait if you do. I frequently place pick-up... More

I probably would not... More

The family and I wanted something a little different but the same so we checked out Tijuana Flats and I am so glad we do the turkey flautas for off the chain and the hot sauce bar not quite to die for but pretty close. You will not be too long before we make another trip for something different but... More

My family really likes Tijuana Flats. They have some great choices and make them fresh to order. You can choose healthier options by selecting powerlite. I really like the chicken chimichanga. The staff is very friendly. You place your order up front and they bring it to you.They also will get you refills.

I work up in this area so we are always going out for lunch around here. Hands down the best Tex Mex in the area. Always parking spots and the service is great. Sometimes I order online so I can just walk right in and pick it up. Some of my co workers had never been and now it is... More

Best service in town and best Tex-Mex. The staff is super friendly and efficient. The food is excellent and they have the best specials in town. Generous portions. Tuesday is taco night. Two tacos, nachos, and a drink for $5.49. Thursday is burrito night. Large burrito, nachos, and a drink for $5.99.

This is a great place for lunch or dinner on the go. Quick service. Best salsa bar in Raleigh with exotic choices for tacos!

First time visit, welcomed with open arms and smiles. Very confusing, laborious ordering process. Super good hot sauce bar. An odd mix of counter and full service... Food was just okay...nothing bad, just bland and seemingly ordinary. Not much flavor without the sauces. Chips normal, salsa very tasty, quesadilla not even grilled AT ALL! Overall, not worth a return visit.
