Mural at Tijuana Flats restaurant


We went back for a second time to eat at Tijuana Flats. Sitting right in front of this mural, I couldn't resist taking a photo.

What's wrong Jacob, not your kinda girl? She does look pretty tough.

She's packin' some heat (actually it looks a little like Mr. Brattcat's drill). I wonder if the food there packed heat, too. ( :

I love the colors in this drawing -- I can see why you shot it!

Dan J. said...

Incredible artwork. The color and imagery is amazing. I thought it may be something out of a quality comic book at first.

I wish I could create something like this.

Hilda said...

Hahaha! I just read Irina's comment — love it!

Hilda said...

Fun and very cool! But she sure doesn't look like someone who'd be serving quesadillas.

Reminds me of a girl I once dated...

Rob said...

How could you miss this?!

Cezar and Léia said...

Are they serving anything else at Tijuana Flats? :)

It is a nice mural. Love those bright colors!

Lois said...

Wow! That reminds me of some of the cartoons my grandson likes to watch.

Daryl said...

If the food is as lively as the art ...

VP said...

I suppose T and F are for Tijuana Flats...

The Real Tijuana said...

It does not do our fair city justice ... but it *is* a good start!

Virginia said...

That's hilarious. Never been there but that's not what I'd expect from the name!

Is this a local artist? I like restaurants that showcase local talent.

Tijuana is a name not soon forgotten. The name reminds me of a restaurant in Santa Fe, NM--Torilla Flats.

JM said...

This is SO cool!

Oh my goodness!

Hello there!

I was amazed to run across this mural in a google search for some of my artwork!

I'm Tijuana Flats' muralist. I painted all the crazy stuff inside this location and many, many others.

Thanks guys!
