“If you really think this is Tex Mex, you are disillusioned”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Being a native life long Texan I think I am very qualified to know Tex Mex from the swill being served here. This is a Florida based company trying to hawk "Tex Mex" in Georgia and Florida, but it wouldn't last a month in the Texas market. The only thing this place has over Taco Smell is it serves cold beer. Canned refried beans, reheated tortilla chips, weird rice. Overpriced, and a waste of time and money. Its not "fast food" it took 25 minutes to dish out the substandard overpriced food. And its certainly not worth a visit.

“Mexican?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

Not sure what cuisine this was supposed to be. The ingredients were Mexican, but the flavor was not. Maybe the hot sauce bar ( no salsa, no picante, no pico de galo) should have been a tip off. We did get friendly service and enjoyed the neighborhood location.

“Can't wait for one to open in Pooler, Ga!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014 via mobile

Have never been to or heard of Tijuana Flats until my Visit Savannah trip when a team member suggested it for a late lunch. WOW! Great service and the food is delicious! Drew, the manager, very personable and gave us a lot of background on the restaurant. The sauces are yummy! The food is good! Loves the chocolate chip fries heaven in a wrap dessert! Can't wait for the one to open up in Pooler, GA!!!!

“Hot Sauce!!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

The outdoor seating rocks! The restaurant is in a good location although the parking is horrible in the Publix plaza. The hot sauce bar rocks. The portions of food could be better. I ordered a chicken quesadilla and upon opening the tortilla saw one to two little pieces of chicken in each one.
