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

Honestly we have been going to Tortilla Flats since 1987! The BEST margaritas and sangria anywhere. From the long standing favorites: incredible burrito, nachos, eggplant supreme, and quesadillas to weekly specials, all the food is fresh and tasty. Usually about a 30 minute wait on Friday and Saturday night. On street parking. Enjoy!

Food is always good and reasonably priced, drinks too! Service is decent, we usually go when it's slow, the waitresses are pretty good at checking in only when needed and not over doing it. We always enjoy!

I've been going to this restaurant for over 30 years. When we got our food it was lukewarm at best. We were unable to get the attention of the waitstaff. The desert churros were great and came out piping hot.
