Tijuana Flats, as with any mexican/Tex-Mex restaurant, gives vegans a lot of opportunities to make minor changes to have delicious meals. Therefore, instead of listing the things you can eat, I’ll list the things you can’t eat. I’ll also tell you the item that allows a vegan to get the most out of this restaurant.
By the way, most of these are extremely obvious.
- cheese blend
- Power lite cheese
- Chili con Queso
- Half and half
- Ranch dressing
- Sour cream
- Fat free sour cream
- Avocado dressing (contains wheat & soy)
- Ranch dressing (contains wheat & soy)
- Caesar dressing (contains soy)
- Lite vinaigrette
- Spinach artichoke
- Chipotle sauce
- Any meats & fish
My favorite vegan dish at Tijuana Flats is the Fresh Noritto Bowl. It’s a giant bowl with rice, black beans, pico de gallo, green onions, and a dollop of guacamole. According to the website, all beans are lard-free, so I’m assuming that the Refried Beans are vegan. I will write an email to the restaurant to ask for sure.
