We took a seat. In a few moments the manager Lee came out and introduced himself. He kindly explained the menu, drink specials etc...Really good with... More

We had a craving for nachos, so we Googled and found this place in a plaza across the street from our vacation rental on Clark Rd. it's mostly for take out, though there were some tables. Music wasn't our taste nor was the decor, but the take out food was delicious and we were served quickly. Good prices, too.

I ordered the Megajuana Beef Chimichanga. It was great. We used to live in Sarasota but this was the first time we had been back since 2005 and had eaten at the Tijuana Flats on Tamiami Blvd when we lived there a lot. The Clark Road address is new but it was great too. Of course, I really love this... More

My family and I were in town visiting and we stopped here on the first night for a quick bite. The food is delicious, the staff is impeccable (friendly, informative, fun), the ambiance is great and the hot sauce bar is filled with great choices with cool names.

I have eaten here many times, at this location and others. I have eaten here with family and friends, including some friends who say beforehand that they do not like Mexican food. I tell them if they do not like the food, I will pay for their meal. I have not paid yet.
