This place is an institution, and a fun place to go any time of the day or night. But the Mexican food is not good, and never has been. It's bad. Still it is a hot spot with families, locals, travelers, singles, etc. With fresh ingredients, and something that approximates a chef, the place would be perfect.

Good Mexican place, can be slammed Friday and Saturday nights so plan accordingly. Combo plates are certainly the way to go as you can custom your own meal. Service is always good and the seasonal Sangrias are always a hit whenever we try one. My only issue with coming here, for some reason people walk in the door and feel... More

We decided to get some take out and settled in Tortilla Flats. We had to actually order at the restaurant and wait for the food as they don't accept phone orders. The menu will take you beyond the normal Tex-mex to creole, barbecue and burgers if you're so inclined. We stuck with the menu. Hard shell ground beef tacos were... More

Recently I revisited this location after a few years and they still have delicious food! They really cover all the bases with their menu. If you like Mexican food, an active atmosphere and an eclectic crowd...then this place will become a fast favorite.

I used to eat here with my wife when we lived in Providence over 20 years ago. It was good then, and it's good now. Nice to see it has not changed. Portions are huge, prices are fair, and the vibe is funky and colorful. The mole sauce is great. Hope it sticks around for another 20 years.

My husband and I went on a Saturday night around 5:30. We got there before the crowds. I ordered a Coconut Margarita and coconut shrimp appetizer to share with my husband. Both were amazing! We were told by the waitress that the owner was cooking. For dinner I ordered their eggplant Mexican dish. I loved it so much I now... More

Tortilla Flats has been around for decades, offering a nice, dark, cozy atmosphere, perfect for a casual visit, long or short. The food is tasty and one can order margaritas and more from the bar.

Strongest drinks in Providence! Friendly staff and finally, we have good food at Tortilla Flats! I love this place. It is comfortable and fun. You will never leave the flats in a bad mood. It just doesn't happen.

This place was my local before I moved out of the country. I always check in when I am visiting because the Margaritas and Fajitas are the best. I get some chips with salsa and guacamole and start from there. Tacos, Tamales and Burritos are fantastic too. This place is an institution and can get busy during peak hours, but... More
