We live right near the Flats, and will often meet there for family get togethers. They seem to have a big turnover in employees, but we've always had good service there. Have always gotten good meals, whether Mexican or American. They have outstanding house salsa. Also now open is outdoor screened in dining, which is so relaxing! There are lots of fun things going on at night, from drink promos and giveaways to local gimmicks. Always fun to go to; you never have to worry about unruly, drunk crowds. The atmosphere is fun, casual, and laid back. Prices are very competitive. Tortilla Flats have been part of our community forever, and we're lucky to have them.

Not Mexican food..but a dumbed down Americanized version, and executed poorly. Tip..go somewhere else

House margarita was good for 4.99. No chips and salsa brought to the table and the entire place was not busy. Ordered chix fajita salad. No more than 2 oz chix and 1/2 was gristly fat-unedible. Salad was size of small garden salad in very small tortilla shell. Nothing special, not worth the price. Spouse said he has had many better meals. Service was good, but probably wont return, many other restaurants where we have eaten more exciting food for a decent price. Seems like there are a lot of locals keeping the place going, hopefully they will step it up all the way around.

This is not fine dining. Very casual, average Mexican food. My favorite is the spinaca dip and Margaritas.

Tortilla Flat has been a mainstay of Merrimack for over 20 years. It's a great little place with a friendly bar, good selection of beer and tequila, and a killer margarita! I will be upfront and say I don't go there for the food; there are many other restaurants that do Mexican better; however, the atmosphere, the staff, make up for any shortcomings in the kitchen. That isn't to say their food is bad, because it isn't! The apps are all pretty tasty, and we are fond of the oven baked burrito. The sides are an after-thought, with bland refried beans and boxed Mexican-style rice. If you want a nice surprise, however, try the mussels steamed in Corona, or their warm chips and awesome salsa! (Chips and salsa are complimentary, and old-timers know to help themselves to seconds if the waitress doesn't offer!) I wouldn't recommend this place as a destination if you are looking for an authentic Mexican meal. But it's our favorite place to go for a beer (especially on the deck in the summer) or a margarita and some good apps or burritos! It really is a "neighborhood hangout!" and everyone is made welcome.
