Tijuana Flats is one of those restaurants for me when I can't REALLY come up with a good lunch idea TF, and their giant hard shell tacos, are a long time favorite of the GLOB Master's and is hard to resist. Not only that, today was a Tijuana Taco TWO-Fer for me. I was eating a black bean taco with jalapeños, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream & cheese. Plus the black beans, and refried beans, are vegetarian lard free beans cooked in zero trans fast cooking oil. BTW Tijuana Flats proudly says they never use canned foods, EVER. CARUMBA! I understand how all of those things I just mentioned are very important to a lot of GLOBers. Gosh Pee Wee, they are important to me. What I find remarkable is those healthy eating elements are secondary TWO my lunch mission which was TWO enjoy TWO of the best tacos in Hogtown. The refried Bean taco brings back many memories of tacos gone by with the crunchy corn taste of the taco, combined with the plethora of yummy veggies flavors and Mexican Hot sauce Goodness. It's fun standing in front of the TF Hot Sauce Counter and selecting my favorite sauce of the day from the amazing number of different sauces. Today I selected the "House Favorite" hot sauce, and the "Tropical Chile Company Hot N Honey Sauce". Both sauces were a little sweeter than I had expected but they added tons of flavor to my lunch. Tijuans Flats has one of the best taco TWOsday special in town with two giant tacos, chips and a drink for $5.59. That special deserves TWO CARUMBAs!
