GoodMexican with Awesome Specials

The location is downtown so parking can be less than easy, but it is worth it. The food is fresh and the menu is not a reprint of every other Mexican restaurant you walk into. They are also flexible to create what you want in a meal. The happy hour food and drink specials are also a bargain.

Prior to Taming of the Shrew we stopped in for lunch. Service was great, food delightful, highly recommended. Chorizo was great and very spicy.

the wait staff at Baka makes up for mediocre food. Some dishes just aren't consistent. The daily specials are the way to go!

You will not find better Baja California Mexican food anywhere east of the Southwest US. Best Sangria I've had in a loooong time. Interesting style of Chile Relleno preparation and very good too! Solid menu of classic dishes prepared traditionally. Oh, and prices are extremely reasonable...extremely!

I like the menu and the beer selection. It's fast good and inexpensive. they have daily specials that are always a diverse selection and something for everyone. They also take request for some change on the entree you select no problem. I think the service is fast and friendly. They're desserts are great too.

Whenever we can't decide where to go for some good food, we fall back on the Baja Bean. The food is always good, and the prices are fair. Good portions and great service make this place a top restaurant for California style Mexican fare. They also have a separate side where one can eat and smoke, although we've never been... More

It was okay. Nothing special. Had guac and chips and our son had a burger, which he did not finish. The best part was seeing Santa and Krampus walking right outside the door. Good photo opp!

Everything was good. We had nachos, fish tacos, and the 'so gouda' tacos... All worthy of a try. But the best thing on the table was the queso dip - yum! The decor is average at best. The holiday crowd was boisterous, so the place was loud. However, we enjoyed ourselves.

Always a good value, with fresh tasting food. Locals like enchiladas cubanas--for good reason. Fun margaritas, and decent beers.
