On a delayed flight from CHO we decided to grab an early dinner at Baja, a favorite for Mexican cuisine. These good folks have always accommodated my allergens to lactose, gluten and soy by committing to prepare my favorite fajitas without vegetable oil mixed into the vegetables and meat. Before the fajitas were prepared with only a slight touch of... More

We were greeted and immediately shown to seats. The restaurant was clean. We had fajitas, chicken and steak. Sides were great, which included a nice fresh gucamole. The flour tortillas were grilled. The salsa was a freshly made and delicious. We will be going back.

We eat here very visit to C-ville. Freshly made, unique dishes. Not your regular tacos, burritos, and fajitas. Warm and friendly staff, big portions, great value. 4 lunches for under $40? yes. You will not be disappointed.

I had the vegetable enchiladas combo, which was pretty good. The price ($6.50) is about average for standard Mexican food. The place wasn't awesome, but it wasn't horrible either--a pretty typical run-of-the-mill Tex-Mex eatery. I would eat there again for a quick, inexpensive, lunch.

This was better than most. Had a nice variety on the menu. Great salsas - a variety to choose from. Seemed to be very popular with the locals. I had tacos and enchiladas. My husband had an enchilada dinner. Both were very good.

The title says it all. The food is really verging on inedible. But I have had fun having a few beers here, and while I've never been, karaoke is supposed to be fun. Just, please, don't eat.

Disclaimer: I love Mexican food, especially of the Text-Mex varieity. Baja Bean Co does not disappoint. This location on the Corner near UVA is a great choice if you're looking for quick and affordable Tex-Mex food. Lunch menu is great -- for just $6.45 you can choose from about a dozen entrees, with soft drink included. I had the Big... More

Good location on the Corner, where it's been for years, with decent decor. Service was quick, with good salsa and chips. Chicken tamales were also fairly good, but the side of rice was undercooked and dry, and I didn't feel up to touching the small blob of refried beans. A decent 'eat-and-forget' place - but not one I'd go out... More

Average place, nothing special! We were a bit disappointed because we love mexican food and heard about this place in town. Cool energy inside but the food was kind of blah. We won't go back.

Being from California, I've tried 'em all. Baja Bean is hands-down, the best Mexican food in this area. The owner has developed an extensive menu with a nod to authenticity over the standard mexican fare. Delicious! Generous portions, a variety of salsas, and very agreeable prices. A "Must" if you like Mexican food.
