Child has celiac so we went here as it said there were GF options. Wow, where there ever! Everything tasted good, the place was packed and it seems there is a large crowd of regulars. We shall return!

We went here on a locals recommendation - we were seated immediately and then waited approx. 10 mins for a staff to bring us menus and water. This restaurant is BYOB wish we would have known but not a big deal. I ordered the chicken quesadilla and my husband had the chicken enchilada both were very disappointing - I don't... More

Yes, indeed, we dined here on May 5. Great atmosphere, great food, great service. Many gluten free choices for those interested (I was). Wished we would have known it was BYOB. No margaritas for our celebration.

Enjoyed a great meal at Tortilla Flats in Avalon, NJ. Get ready for Cinco de Mayo. It's located on the main street in Avalon. Try the Navajo Fry Bread. Absolutely delicious!

Ordered take out on an off-season Saturday night. One each of the following: black bean soup, guac, salad, chips w/cheese, quesadilla and two taco's. Total $80. Really??? Also, guac came without chips, cheese on the chips was not melted and the tacos were soggy. Really??? Do not recommend.

Tortilla Flats has been around awhile, but it is still a good choice for fresh food. It's basic, nothing over top, Mexican cuisine, Fresh and tasty. The Shrimp Tortilla Soup was great and had huge pieces of Shrimp. The Texas toothpicks were good too.

This is the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. The owner learned how to cook authentic Mexican food from her time living in southern California and brought that authenticity here to the east coast. The menu offers diners the opportunity to stay traditional with standard offerings like burritos and tacos or get creative by choosing unusual fillings and garnishes.... More

Their homemade salsa and chips are wonderful. I even bought a bag to bring home. Guacamole was extra special. Fajitas very different from what I'm used to but I loved the flavors. Waitress was great and so, so helpful. Definitely, a place you would enjoy--especially if you are traveling with kids.

Good food and generous portions. Service can be a little slow hey who cares when you're on vacation. No liquor license so it's BYOB if you want a beer with your meal.

We ordered a carry out dinner, it was ready as promised and we added a pint of guacamole to our order and hurried home. The Blue Crab Nachos were terrific and the guacamole fresh and tasty. We also got an order of Shrimp and Scallop Fajitas that we ended up saving to reheat for lunch the next day as the... More
