Tasty and Fresh

I really enjoyed my chicken burrito and the different salsas from the salsa bar. My fav was the chipotle salsa. My family had tacos and quesadillas and everyone liked their food. I also had the mango juice which you could tell was fresh. We sat on the patio which reminded me of sitting outside... read more

This is by far my favorite Mexican restaurant in Oakland ahead of El Taco Zamerano. The steak and prawn burrito is my go to, but I also will get the two taco combo. If you are only going to visit once you definitely need to try the fish tacos. They have fresh salsa available everyday and their horchata is the... More

I travel coast-to-coast and always order the fish tacos when on a menu. These are the best - fresh, full and delicious. No square fish in these tacos!.

Just what I wanted - fresh ingredients and not much fuss. A perfect set of fish tacos. Good atmosphere, too.

We get takeout from Baja a few times a month! Their food is fresh and tasty, and their menu has traditional and more creative options. I love the prawn quesadilla.

...that you can find Mexican food this flavorless in the bay area, a mexican food mecca. Awful food. Nice backyard patio, though.

Located on trendy Piedmont Ave., this taqueria has been around for a long time. I especially like the chicken burrito, which comes with ample tortilla chips. Tacos are also good, and the fresh horchata goes done nice. A lot of people don;t realize that this place has a liquor license, so you can also buy beer and wine.

Tacos are my favorite fast food. Tacos done well are one of my favorite foods, period. Baja is just ok. This is "mexican" food as conceived by white hippies from California. If you are just looking for a quick bite and you know what to expect, that's just fine. The ingredients are fresh, the prices are decent.

These are the real deal. We make sure to stop in at least once on each trip to Oakland to visit our daughter and her family.
