Tijuana Flats, the Orlando, Florida-based Tex-Mex favorite, today announced the opening of its Eagle Creek location, a new Central Florida location in the Lake Nona area. The restaurant is opening on December 6 and will launch with the brand’s newly designed prototype that includes a fresh new look with technology upgrades and architectural enhancements to create an exceptional guest experience. In celebration of the grand opening, the restaurant will offer guests a week full of special deals.  

Located at 14152 Narcoossee Rd., Suite 360, in Orlando, the location marks Tijuana Flats’ second new prototype store in Central Florida. The 2,400-square-foot restaurant will have an indoor seating capacity of 68 and an outdoor capacity of 20. It will feature a new-and-improved Hot Bar with 12 hot sauce pumps, an enhanced curbside pickup program as well as digital menu boards for easy ordering and order status boards linked directly to the kitchen. The location will also feature a colorful wall mural with nods to the local community painted by artist Nate Baranowski. 

Grand opening week specials kicked off on December 6 [and also featured a Give Back Day with 20% of sales donated to Nemours Children’s Hospital through Tijuana Flats’ nonprofit arm, the Just In Queso Foundation].  

“Our Eagle Creek location is going to be an instant hit within the Lake Nona community,” says Tijuana Flats CEO Brian Wright. “We pride ourselves on being a strong part of every community that we serve, and we look forward to doing the same in Lake Nona, and can’t wait to see our guests during opening week and beyond!”
