Baja Fish Tacos

Being from San Diego the Baja Fish tacos are the closest you can get in this area. I haven't tried anything else, so I can't tell you anything about the rest of their food.

We visit this location at least twice a month. The salsa is some of the best I have ever had. We used to live in Texas and we have eaten ALOT of salsa in our 50 years. The burrito are awesome and I love the vegetarian choices. I eat half of the burrito and still have a meal later. The... More

This is a fun place to eat. Near the interstate and kid friendly. It is certainly a more nutritious fast food choice. Always fresh ingredients and always polite and generous service.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We enjoy all the children that pick our restaurant over so many others. I hope you have tried Family Night on Thursday evenings.

I have eaten numerous times at BCB in Cookeville with consistent results. The characteristic that sets this restaurant apart from so many others is their food is always fresh and healthy. Chicken, pork, beef and shrimp presented as a burrito, taco, salad and or even in a naked burrito (served on a plate without the burrito) are combined with the... More

In my opinion, this is a failed attempt to imitate Moe's or Chipotle's, neither of which must many Cookeville diners ever experienced. The meats were cold, the servers acted as though my patronage was an imposition and I was charged extra for the smidgen of guacamole on my tacos. And the guacamole tasted like it came from a plastic bag... More

Quite busy so I ordered to go. The fish tacos were delicious and HUGE. Had a difficult time finishing what I ordered for lunch. Looked like a variety of folks dining - friends meeting for lunch, business people, quite a mix. Definitely recommend!

This Blue Coast is excellent! Food is fresh and tasty. Every experience has been wonderful. But I wish they would keep the soup year round! Celiac friendly. Great gluten free options.

Fresh food done right - I highly recommend. The food is a bit more expensive than your run of the mill Mexican restaurant - but then Blue Coast is not a run of the mill restaurant. Blue Coast is a chain but doesn't have that kind of an atmosphere. The food is what I would describe at Baja or California... More
