I live on the east shore, but will drive down JUST for the Brussels Sprout tacos with jalapeno honey drizzle. I'm eating fairly low carb, and they brought me sliced cucumbers with my guacamole, which I thought was really considerate. Great place!

This was a nice and simple restaurant. Had a Carne Asada Burrito which was excellent. The Jalapeño Margarita was also excellent.

The main Tortilla Republic and the Cantina/Margarita Bar are combined now (according to our waitress). I had a dish that was “catch of the day” with amazing sauces, and some wonderful flavors...very tender. We also shared the Ceviche—which was the reason that we returned to...More
