The lowdown: Brian Wheeler was just trying to replicate a favorite University of Florida eatery when he opened the first Tijuana Flats in 1995. Wheeler, 38, may be as surprised as anyone that his little burrito and taco shop, modeled on Burrito Brothers in Gainesville, has grown to a chain of more than 70 restaurants with locations in Indiana, Virginia, the Carolinas and Pennsylvania. Service is fast at this Tex-Mex eatery and the prices are great.
