–Tijuana Flats Announces Opening of Its Second Gainesville Location–

ORLANDO, Fla. (January 3, 2012) – On Monday, January 23, Tijuana Flats, famous for its fresh Tex-Mex food and unique ambiance, opens its second location in Gainesville at 3414 SW Archer Rd.

This new location will feature Tijuana Flatsʼ fresh, made-to-order menu, a 15-pump hot sauce bar and all the lively atmosphere patrons have come to expect from the Tex-Mex powerhouse. The 1,980-square-foot restaurant will accommodate indoor and patio seating for more than 85 guests.  Anyone who has experienced Tijuana Flats knows about its brightly colored wall murals. The mural at this location is no exception, portraying a red, lightning-manipulating mutant that is ready to zap any who dare disobey his anti-bland command.
