After some time spent riding roller coasters at Busch Gardens, my partner and I decided to grab a bite at Tijuana Flats. As soon as we walked in the door, we were warmly greeted by a server and sat at a table. We ordered two appetizers, the chips and guacamole and the atom bombs. Folks, the chips and guac are fresh and plentiful and the atom bombs are savory and served warm.

I had the Bangin Chicken Burrito - which as average and my partner ordered a Chimichanga - so so. If we had to do it all over again, I think we'd best be served by ordered just the appetizers. Oh, the iced tea is Luzianne and is AWESOME!

The wife and I decided to try this restaurant while in Tampa. She had the Tijuana Burrito with Beef&Bean, and I had the Two Tacos with Beef. Both with fresh toppings, lettuce, tomato, onions, jalapenos, and sour cream on the side. We also ordered the Pico De Gallo, and the Salsa Verde. Everything was delicious, but what made this restaurant stand out was the Hot Sauce Bar where you can choose from a variety of sauces. I tried some Ghost Chili Sauce, not for the faint of heart; some Sirricha type sauce, medium heat; some sweet Chili sauce, very mild; and some Pure Capsium Liquid, The Hottest!!! There were about 15 different types of sauce to try, so there is one for every taste. Delicious food and pleasant atmosphere! They also serve Larger Parties

Great variety at a good price. I would go back. Vegetarians have lots of choices. Great black beans and rice. Chicken enchiladas were good.

The food here is always great, whether it's nachos, tacos, burritos or whatever - it's good! The service is pretty good and quick and the wide variety of sauces is a nice twist!
