Visited baja on Friday night for dinner and a drink. Margarita and daiquiri were on point and our dinner was yummy. Had the fajitas and a huge side of guacamole. The salsa bar is unique and so good! I think the highlight however is the staff! So friendly and a pressure to interact with. What a great team Baja's has!... More

Food was delicious! It has been a long time since I had Mexican food this good. The restaurant is kind of a hole in the wall, but don't let the looks deceive you...what comes out of the kitchen is absolutely yummy. And the service was fantastic too. Highly recommend...

Excellent fish burrito (the $7 fish burrito is delicious....they also make a $15 fish burrito especial, but the $7 one is plenty big and perfectly prepared, so I haven't looked further to try the more expensive one). The refried beans are the real deal....I like them b/c I can taste the pork fat, which adds so much flavor. The salsa... More

Stopped here while we were traveling and had stopped for the night nearby. Service was terrific and friendly. The food was really good. My carnitas dinner had so much we made "burritos" with the remains and ate them for lunch on the road the next day. Here are the reasons for not giving this a 5. Great salsa bar: however,... More

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
