Tijuana Flats - Tamarac, FL

At Tijuana Flats, it is all about serving up some good ol' Tex-Mex cuisine. A Florida original, they now have location all across the state and are steadily moving into other territory. Based upon the "fast casual" restaurant concept, you walking in, check out the menu, place your order and wait for them to bring out your food for you. Of course while you wait, you can check out the hot sauce bar and pick your choosings among many flavors from mild to super duper hot.

The Tamarac location is situated in a quiet shopping center with nothing more than a mattress store next door (there might be other store but I have failed to notice). The decor is very colorful and vibrant and follows the scheme of all the other Tijuana Flats locations. The ambiance is fun, so much so that you may feel the urge to throw back some tequila shots, but unfortunately, no liquor is served here. On the plus side though, they offer wine and beer and we all know that is the next best thing. Of course they have Sangria, Barefoot Wines, Modelo and Coronas. Another fun offer at Tijuana Flats are the Taco Tuesdaze ($4.99 for 2 tacos, chips & a drink) and Throwback Thursdaze ($5.99 for a burrito, chips & a drink).

Probably almost every time I go, I have to get the steak flautas. Although fried and fattening, you cannot deny fat tastes good and this dish right here, taste so good. Not only are their ingredients fresh, I also like the fact that even though they have a set menu, you do have the choice of flour or wheat tortillas and the option to add the all the fixings you like. The flautas come with a side of Queso, guacamole and sour cream but you can select your veggies and choose to add beans (black or refried) and rice. I being the glutton I am get it all, but bear in mind they have vegetarian options of everything and vegan options as well.

Another great menu item is the Bangin' Chicken Burrito. Imagine this, crispy chicken tossing in what they call a smack my ass sauce, loaded into a huge burrito of grilled onions and green peppers, tomato, cheese and ranch dressing. Need I say more. This was my first time trying it and it was really good so don't be afraid to try different menu items.

My experience has been consistently good so definitely check out Tijuana Flat. There are options for everyone and food that taste good and a good price.
