I am a big fan of Tijuana Flats, but most of my visits center around their great Taco Tuesday promotion (2 huge tacos of your choice of ground beef or chicken, plus chips and a drink for $5.49). But recently I attended a Central Florida Lady Bloggers event where I got to try some of their other yummy menu items.
First a little history on the brand. It was formed in 1995 by a UCF student named Brian Wheeler, with the first location in Winter Park. So this is a local brand. In the course of the twenty years since that first store, Tijuana Flats has grown to 100 restaurants in six states. Each location is also decorated differently with local artist drawn murals and ceiling decor.
Tijuana Flats is one of my favorite places to eat, since they always offer great food at a great price. Plus they have an amazing hot sauce bar with everything from no heat to “OMG I just burned the lining of my mouth off” heat.
They have various locations around Orlando, and I recently paid my first visit to one of their newest locations, on Sand Lake Rd in Dr. Phillips.
