This casual Mexican chain has over 130 locations throughout the states of Florida, Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, and Virginia. If you are seeking a laid-back Mexican restaurant with good food and affordable pricing, there is no better choice in the Tampa Bay area.
Everything at Tijuana is made fresh daily, even the queso, guacamole, and salsa. You can count on a fresh meal despite the quick service nature of the establishment. The menu is simple with your choice of tacos, quesadillas, chimichangas, flautas, enchiladas, or burritos. Anything can be made vegetarian by ordering with black beans.
The enchiladas are particularly delicious. Spicy chipotle or a milder Verde sauce is available. Chips and salsa can be added for a mere 2 bucks.
While far from healthy, their cookie dough flautas (a whopping 1136 calories!) are quite popular. If you have a sweet tooth, you will definitely want to splurge on this treat!
This is a fast casual restaurant where you order at the counter. I recommend scanning the menu at home in advance as the board is quite hard to read in the dark, crowded environment.
The setting, though casual, is eclectic and colorful. The small space packs in a lot of personality. For those cooler fall/winter days, check out the covered patio.
For quick service Tex Mex eats, you cannot get more affordable than Tijuana. At Tijuana, you can look forward to tasty comfort food, along with a fun & funky setting.
