I grew up in the New Haven, Connecticut area. I know pizza and what constitutes a good one. I am a total pizza snob. I have traveled and will own up that I am ignorant on the subject of “authentic Mexican” or “Tex-Mex”. I do know what tastes yummy and Baja's Mexican Restaurant fits this bill. I am sharing a...

Best chimichanga's and carnitas around with a great nacho bar there to boot with mild and super hot choices. The nachos there are pretty awesome too !

Awesome Traditional "Baja-style" Mexican cuisine. Fresh salsa bar, daily ceviche, a perhaps the best fish burrito you will ever have outside Mexico! The only thing preventing a "5-star" rating is the strip mall setting it's located in, next to a tire shop! The food is definitely 5-star worthy.

I took my daughter here for lunch and was disappointed. I had been looking for a decent "hole-in-the-wall" Mexican place that was more Mex than Tex-Mex. This is on the Post Rd very close to the Orange Target store. It is dark and dingy. The server/hostess/bartender was bright and cheery, though, and I thought she was really nice. The menu... More

This is our one and only go to Mexican food place in So. Connecticut. I grew up in Los Angeles and have vacationed all over Mexico over the last 30 years, over 40 weeks spent there in my life. I know what good Mexican food is, and this is it. Great portion size, super price, a little lacking on the... More

Everytime I go, the servers ask "how is everything?" and I'm always happy to say "excellent as always!" There are few restaurants where everytime you eat there the food is always excellent. The homemade chips, self-serve salsa bar (with mild, medium & hot options), the authentic & diverse menu; yum. They've made some strides to make the atmosphere better. The... More

We were pleasantly surprised. What this restaurant lacks in atmosphere it more than makes up for in authenticity. Food and service were excellent. Tortilla chips were the best we've ever had. Also, do not miss the carrots at the salsa bar. They are uniquely flavored.
