This is the best "quick" stop for Mexican food. I look forward to business trips that take me close to one of these restaurants. The cookie dough flautas are amazing. Wish they would open some on the west coast. Best sauces and chimichangas.

Walk in, order and find a seat and the food is brought to you. I was very pleased with the visit to this particular Tijuana Flats. I got MORE than enough to eat in comparison to others in the chain. THe staff was friendly and attentive.

Wow what a hidden gem we had never eaten here before they were running a special for teachers eat free so we stopped the tacos and enchiladas were the best we have ever had! We we'll be eating here often.

The food was good and the staff were really nice. We read on their website that they deliver so we tried to order online, but the site kept giving errors. We then called the restaurant and they sent us to another website to order for delivery. The food was more expensive on that site, did not offer the same options... More

We went tonight for a quick date before the Gator game finished. The staff was so sweet, friendly and helpful. Our food was prepared promptly and was delicious! We will definitely return.

This place is a little hard to find but well worth the search. They serve a variety of Mexican foods at a reasonable price. The hot sauce bar has different sauces to try from mild to to extreme. Staff and service was some of the best I have had in Gainesville. Check it out.

I had two tacos with meat. They weren't soooo bad, but probably they were put out of the fridge and (insufficiently) microwaved, with a mix of very hot parts and ice-cold parts. I wouldn't recommend.

Consistently good food every time. I always get the steak tacos and they are amazing each and every time. I recommend this place to anyone and everyone that likes tacos/Mexican food
