“Can you say Yum?”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

The best and I mean the best chimichanga's ever. Sorry if I spelled that wrong. Try the steak chimichanga with steak and wet with queso. The staff is always fast and friendly. The tacos are huge and if you like hot sauce you have many sauces to chose from. The atmosphere is great and I love the look of the place.

“Not my favorite Tijuana Flats”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I generally LOVE Tijuana Flats, but this was not the best of the bunch! It was a little on the dirty side, the tables were a little nasty and the menus were sticky (yuck)....the service was mediocre and when I asked for extra chips, the girl seemed put out! I would definitely NOT go back to this TF, but I still LOVE the chain!

“fast & fresh”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

fresh fast mexican food at good prices. good for lunch or dinner. large selection of hot & mild sauces. I think they have beer there although not a full bar. You seat yourself but the waitress brings your food out and will give you refills on your beverage. all staff have been pleasant and the place is clean with plenty of parking.

“Good Mexican Food”
Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

Limited menu but it is good food. The chips are not the freshest but awful. Great choice of sauces. Lunch time is very busy and quite loud. Service is good.
