Tijuana Flats

39 Eglin Parkway N.E.

Reviews:
Tijuana Flats is a unique place and a favorite of locals, for the amount of food you get, the prices are unbeatable and the staff is a cool and eclectic crew. When I worked in this area I would eat here frequently for lunch. They run different lunch specials, but this was a Tuesday regular since you could get two huge tacos with chips and toppings for $4.99. If that weren't enough, they also have some great microbrew beers, mostly from the south (Abita, Sweetwater) but with some northern beers (I definitely recommend the Magic Hat "9" or "Wacko"). The food is a solid two-three stars (nothing special, but consistent), but the atmosphere, staff (which always seems to be having a good time), beer selection and wild selection of unusual and delicious hot sauces at crazy low prices make this place a four-star dive in my book.
Loved! Awesome food. Had chips, salsa, queso, and guacamole that were pretty yummy. I love the flautas with the whole wheat option. Hubby had a great burrito and loved the hot bar. I also loved the beer choices. And finally, I can honestly say that this is the best customer service I've had in this town so far. I will be back!
I started off giving it 3 stars for speedy service and friendliness of staff, but when my burrito came, I wasn't too impressed. Not what Im used to coming from ca and the size and taste of true Mexican food. I ordered a regular chicken burrito which was a little bigger than a soft taco (guess I shouldve ordered a bigger size). The burrito barely had any chicken in it. It was mostly the lettuce, cheese, and other sides in a burrito. My friend had a carne asada burrito and it was ground beef, NOT true carne asada. Like the other review said, like a taco bell beef burrito. Another person in our party had a chicken burrito and his was the same as mine, - the chicken. The one good thing is they use organic ingredients but when I go to a Mexican joint, I think greasy, big, and tasty! This place was too much like a deli/wraps place.

Reviews:
The Black Pearl takes a lot of hits on review websites but we've had great service and good food, the 3 times that we've been there. I'm a little miffed that they did away with their Cannonball Shrimp - it really was one of those most delicious things I had a couple years ago, while vacationing. But, what can you do? Our last time there, we got the Sunset Platter, Crab Legs (wood fired!), Filet Medallions and a Blackened Mahi Sandwich. ALL good and service was fantastic. I don't put it in our "must eat" category, while we're vacationing but...it's still worth a taste!
I'm a foodie and picky. Thanks s is my favourite restaurant in this area! The food is always fresh and has good flavour.
absolutely love this restaurant. They have the best crab cakes in the area and the staff is always very helpful and friendly. They are a little pricey, but it's definitely worth it.

Ruby Tuesday

573 North Beal Parkway

Reviews:
My experience at this Ruby Tuesday was not a bad one, it was actually pretty good. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant was very well put together and clean. I ordered the avocado bacon turkey burger with fries and decided to add on the salad bar. The salad bar was actually a lot better than I expected. There were 4 different types of lettuce/spinach to choose from, many options to put on your salad, at least 10 different dressings and probably some of the best croutons I've ever had before. You think they're going to be the hardest thing ever, but they have a surprisingly crunchy yet soft texture. The avocado burger was pretty good also, but didn't stand out above any other similar type sandwich I've had before. The fries were ok, they didn't seem to be very fresh though which prompted me to add a little ketchup to improve the taste. All in all, not a bad experience and I would go back again. There isn't anything I disliked about this particular Ruby Tuesday and there isn't anything that will probably blow you away, but you'll be satisfied.
