Vegan & Family Friendly
Posted on 05 / 03 / 2014
We ended up at Tijuana Flats after the first place we went to didn't have high chairs. So down the road we went and I'm so happy that we did. The staff is polite and vegan-knowledgeable. Most of the items are easily made vegan, even the kids meal.
What we ordered:
Chips and Guacamole
Norritto (burrito bowl) with black beans and refried beans.
Veggie & Bean Burrito (sans cheese)Comes with Chips
Kids meal burrito (refried beans & rice) with apple juice and banana (other option is applesauce.) Comes with chips.
Everything was excellent. Filling and tasty and not a hint of cross-contamination with non-veg items.
The Hot Bar has a lot of great hot sauces. We stuck to the mild ones for the most part. We especially loved the "Slap my @$$ and call me Sally-Sweet" and the "Caribbean Soul Key Lime." Husband tried the Ghost Chile but as we're from New Mexico it wasn't that hot to us.
Also worth a mention, we didn't order them this time, but our server confirmed the banana empanada desert is vegan. Not sure if this includes the caramel sauce or not, but it's nice to know you can finish your meal with something sweet.
The patio is dog friendly (complete with water bowls) and kid friendly (complete with bean bag toss and sidewalk chalk.)
