We stopped for lunch on a Saturday around noon and had no problem with service. It got more crowded by the time we were ready to leave but everyone was accommodated. The combo plates are delicious and made for a second meal as take-home. We will definitely go back.

Stopped here gor a meal with my daughter before a choral concert nearby. Seated quickly near a window to watch the street. The waitress was cordial, but seemed a little terse. The meal was pleasant with the fried ice cream a delight.

This place is an institution, and a fun place to go any time of the day or night. But the Mexican food is not good, and never has been. It's bad. Still it is a hot spot with families, locals, travelers, singles, etc. With fresh ingredients, and something that approximates a chef, the place would be perfect.

Good Mexican place, can be slammed Friday and Saturday nights so plan accordingly. Combo plates are certainly the way to go as you can custom your own meal. Service is always good and the seasonal Sangrias are always a hit whenever we try one. My only issue with coming here, for some reason people walk in the door and feel... More

We decided to get some take out and settled in Tortilla Flats. We had to actually order at the restaurant and wait for the food as they don't accept phone orders. The menu will take you beyond the normal Tex-mex to creole, barbecue and burgers if you're so inclined. We stuck with the menu. Hard shell ground beef tacos were... More

Recently I revisited this location after a few years and they still have delicious food! They really cover all the bases with their menu. If you like Mexican food, an active atmosphere and an eclectic crowd...then this place will become a fast favorite.

I used to eat here with my wife when we lived in Providence over 20 years ago. It was good then, and it's good now. Nice to see it has not changed. Portions are huge, prices are fair, and the vibe is funky and colorful. The mole sauce is great. Hope it sticks around for another 20 years.

My husband and I went on a Saturday night around 5:30. We got there before the crowds. I ordered a Coconut Margarita and coconut shrimp appetizer to share with my husband. Both were amazing! We were told by the waitress that the owner was cooking. For dinner I ordered their eggplant Mexican dish. I loved it so much I now... More

Tortilla Flats has been around for decades, offering a nice, dark, cozy atmosphere, perfect for a casual visit, long or short. The food is tasty and one can order margaritas and more from the bar.
