Our party of eight had some of everything on the menu, it seems. All was reported to be good, mine certainly was. The server was a little overworked, but he managed. The facility appeared clean. Gratuity was included on the bill, but not highlighted by the server.

My wife and I love Tortilla Flat. We normally split the fajita combination plate and have plenty for both of us. The locals like the bar specials but we're not drinkers so can't really comment on that. The atmosphere is very nice and the screened in deck dining is great in the summer.

Good service, but the chips were stale and I'm pretty sure my chimichanga came straight from Sysco. Rather a disappointing lunch.

Stopped at this place at about 6pm on a Friday night on our way to Kittery. We were promptly seated and given menus, which were quite extensive. We have lived in Colardo and are used to eating Mexican cuisine on a regular basis, both at home and out. My wife selected tamales which came very dry and unappealing. I had... More

Tortilla Flat is a very good Mexican Restaurant in the East Deering section of Portland. The menu is extensive and the food very nicely prepared. I particularly enjoy their Fajitas and Enchiladas. The atmosphere is very nice and the service is good.

We love going to Tortilla Flats. On a nice day there is a large screened in deck to enjoy, our favorite place to sit. The menu includes quite a few appetizers, including excellent nachos and a layered dip we love. Portions are very generous, we always need boxes to take home leftovers. We also tried fried avocados with a creamy... More

So I'm still sitting here at the table, so very disappointed in this whole ordeal. Our server left and after a long wait some other person came and took our order, our water cups empty and as we sit here with finished food, our water glasses are still empty. The poor people across from us sat there for 15 minutes... More

It has been a few years since I have visited. I always ordered the chili relenos which I did tonight. They were not what I had expected but still okay. The recipe has changed. The service was good and my eating partner had the small flauta plate which was good.

Wow. Visited on a Friday night with friends recently. Unfortunately - the best part of the visit was the music playing too loudly in the bar area. Entrees were cold - and the quality of the food was simply awful. Nachos were stone cold - loaded with scallions and onions - chips were stale - and the Margaritas here are... More
