Tijuana Flats - Ballantyne
New menu, who dis’?! Tijuana Flats is bringing the fresh, the delicious and the heat with their new menu this month and we are here for it! With locations throughout the Queen City and in Concord, you literally cannot miss this place. Even if you’re on the road, you can find a Tijuana Flats in Florida, Georgia, Indiana and Virginia!
Tijuana Flats is serving up some delicious Tex-Mex and a new menu that hasn’t changed in 25 years. So, they’re obviously bringing their A game with their new and improved menu items.
We had a chance to enjoy all the new menu items at their Ballantyne location and baby, we were impressed! We started off with the Trio appetizer which includes their fresh loaded guacamole, 2 salsas and chips. The guacamole comes loaded with bacon, goat cheese, pico de gallo and fresh herbs. The salsas were perfectly refreshing, one mild and the other spicy. This appetizer was so tasty, we literally finished it off!
Next, we enjoyed their Classic Chicken Rice Bowl, which includes their new shredded chicken. The rice bowl is layered with rice, black beans, shredded chicken, sour cream and pico de gallo. Each bite of this entrée is bursting with flavor! Talk about cleaning the bowl? Oh yes, we did that!
Some other items we really enjoyed included their “limited time only” Grilled Cheesy Steak Flautas (the name speaks for itself!) and their Chicken Tinga Chimichanga which brought both heat and flavor.
For dessert they brought out their Cookie Dough Flautas and Churros with a chocolate dipping sauce. If you’ve been following us, you KNOW we love a good dessert! I mean it’s like the best of all worlds…cookie dough, chocolate, warm dusted churros…. Please just #getinmybelly!
Another cool thing we think you should know about Tijuana Flats is that they have a FULL hot sauce bar. We’re not just talking about any hot sauce bar. This hot sauce bar hosts a ton of flavors from mild to flaming and everything in between. Feeling risky? Go for their “Elijah’s Xtreme Ghost Pepper Sauce”. Not that risky? Maybe “Smack My Ass and Call Me Sally” is a good alternative **insert side eye emoji**. Either way there are a ton of options!
Aside from their delicious food we must say the staff is truly outstanding. They made our visit so memorable and we look forward to visiting again. Tijuana Flats is a great choice for any time of the day or evening.
Don’t miss out on their great specials either. Thursday’s special features Burritos and Entrée Bowls with chips and a drink for $6. Tuesday’s special features Two Tacos with chips and a drink, also for $6. These specials are for lunch AND dinner and you can upgrade your drink to a beer for $1 #forthewin.
As always, don’t forget to let them know Bites with Beauties sent you! Enjoy!
