Apparently, the Tijuana Flats Burrito Co. has finally opened up a location in South Florida. It's about time. Tijuana Flats is a Floridian company, after all, straight out of Winter Haven, and they've got branches in four states already.
We ordinarily wouldn't get so excited about a chain restaurant, but this is a little different. Rumor has it that your average Tijuana Flats stocks almost seven hundred hot sauces. Also, the restaurant is all eco-friendly, from its meats to its greens to its kitchen practices. And furthermore, they insist that their food is healthy. This last is probably not true -- I've never seen a really health-conscious Mexican menu -- but think of it: seven hundred hot sauces. Holy god.
The new location is at 7942 W. Commercial Blvd., Lauderhill. We haven't gone yet, but we will. We'll let you know how it goes.
