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

I like this place. Fresh food, quick friendly service. The servers stopped several times to see if we needed anything.

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.

Stopped at this Tijuana Flats location to grab a quick lunch. Lunch was great but customer service wasn't and that was disappointing. We have visited other Tijuana Flats locations and have always encountered friendly staff, but here it was not the case. The person who served us was rude and unpleasant. She took our order and repeated it back so... More
