In my opinion, fast casual Mexican joints kind of run the gamut from being good (Chipotle, Qdoba) to just plain boring (Moe’s). Tijuana Flats (a much smaller chain) is of that same ilk, is in my neighborhood and I had a coupon, so I figured I would give this one a review.
What I Got: Carnitas Quesadilla, $5.99
The Carnitas Quesadilla comes served with the meat filling of your choice (in my case, pork), cheese and is fully loaded with black olives, jalapenos, onions, lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream, although I had them take the sour cream out because I am not fan. You also get a side of tortilla chips and can load up on a variety of salsa flavors at their salsa bar.
As far as taste is concerned, well, let’s just say this was a lot like Moe’s. It’s not that it was bad, but it was just plain boring. The cheese was only slightly melted, the pork was not all that flavorful and well, I guess the vegetables were just okay.
Honestly, the only thing the quesadilla did was deliver calories and energy to my body. Outside of that, nothing about about it was memorable and the taste was just blah. Well, one thing was memorable: it was served lukewarm. Ugh.
Would I Buy It Again? Definitely not. Tijuana Flats, while a nice business idea, is not memorable enough for me to go back to, even if I do have a coupon. If I want fast casual Mexican, I’ll just stick with Qdoba or Chipotle for roughly the same prices.
