Great Mexican Food

We live in Staunton and this is our go to restaurant for Mexican food. Good value for the price. Fish tacos rock!

Yes I am a local and yes this is one of my favorite places. I can bring family, with small children, from out of town here, my parents love to eat here and my friends and I meet here about once a month. The food is fresh and delish. The staff is fun and not overly attentive. Beer is always... More

(not authentic but great food and service) The Baja Bean is a small local chain here in the Shenandoah Valley ( the other location is in Charlottesville). What the BB lacks in Mexican authenticity they make up for in spades in food quality, service, friendliness, and a very nice selection of micro-brews and "guest" beers. Smoker will appreciate that the... More

The food here was fast and fresh. Service was a little slow but that was because of a new waitress. Another waiter stepped in and helped out. The nachos and the burrito both tasted very good with fresh ingredients. The cilantra crema sauce was delicious. My friends all loved their meals as well.

This is not your usual Mexican Restuarant. The menu choices are not like the generic, "same menu just change the name of the establishment" one. Their salsa is more solid veggies and not a liquid. Add their queso to their salsa and you have heaven on earth! The portions are great. They have specialty drinks (of which I cannot be... More

Decided to check out Baja Bean after a recommendation from staff at the American Shakespeare Company (we bought tickets for a 2 pm matinee). Got to the restaurant a little after 12 and it was crowded (friendly guy who greeted us, as he was waiting tables, mentioned it was Sunday, which is a busy day for them). I wish we... More

The restaurant is a period property located in historic downtown Staunton. A congenial and helpful staff, good margaritas, great cooked to order food, very reasonable prices make this a go-to restaurant. Parking can be a challenge (hint the block behind & parallel to Beverly has additional parking.) We had fish tacos and vegan burrito…excellent!

8 of us dined at Baja Bean last night for my wife's surprise birthday party. The staff were absolutely amazing - they helped me decorate the table with the items I'd brought with me (balloons, napkins, hats, sprinkles etc.), washed a glass I'd just purchased for my wife, refrigerated her cake until it was time to be brought out, supplied...

If my wife and I get the chance to go to dinner we often end up at the Baja Bean. Enchiladas Cubanas (with fried egg on top - a must), So Gouda Tacos, Baja Fish Tacos - are all excellent. You won't be disappointed.
