Tijuana Flats had average food, but the service was poor. I was disappointed. There "hottest sauce" was non very spicy at all. If you are looking for a nice place to eat Tijuana Flats is not the place.

My Tijuana Flats experience started in Tallahassee while on work. I found out they had one in Ft. Walton and decided to take my family there. Despite the old and raggedy dog statue outside and uneven table we sat at, the young ladies that were working that day were extremely courteous. I just wasn't sure if I was to leave a tip when we left. I ordered the Dos Tacos which when I ordered in Tallahassee came with rice and pintos and beans, when ordered in Ft. Walton only came with nachos. The Coca-Cola had an odd taste and I brought another but still had an odd taste, the waitress told me that others had complained about it so I just got another soft drink. Overall the food was excellent but the service was even better!

It is always busy here, which is a testament to how good it is. It has a very laid back, almost hipster feel to it. The staff is awesome, polite, nice, fast, attentive, young and tattooed. The food is pretty good for what it is, not authentic Mexican, but Mexican inspired I guess. Still the flavors are good, great place to go chill with friends, oh...and they sell beer.

Let's get something straight right now. This is not the best and far from the worst Tex Mex fare.
So forget about all the "Yelper experts" with their "expert reviews" of this type of cuisine. I lived in Mexico for 3 years. It's impossible to find the real deal. O.K., back to TFB.

Got some surly teenagers, cranky college kids, or post college kids in the middle of their reality check? Take them here, they'll be happy (relatively). I'm the father and I was happy to have a nice choice of microbrews, dozens of hot sauces, and some tacos. It's beyond informal. You order at the counter. They bring it to you.

And now the attitude. The staff at Gulfarium swears by this place. They love it and I can see why. You won't find a nicer staff anywhere. Really. I've eaten in N.Y.C., San Francisco, Paris, Tuscany, etc., etc.
Here, a server rushed over to open the door for us upon leaving. How good is that?

Very relaxed atmosphere and informal. Stopped off after a long journey from New Orleans and we weren't disappointed. great food, fantastic value for money and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Only problem was that we ate too much! we are vegetarians and the choice was particularly good as not always much of a choice for veggies in the US.
