cheap drinks

My friend and I popped into Baja on a beautiful day to enjoy margaritas outside on the spacious patio. The total tab for two drinks was just $5.50 with tax! A basket of chips and bowl of salsa with our margaritas and life was good.

Three of us walked in and waited at the hostess booth because the sign said to wait to be seated. After a few minutes, a guy walked up and asked us if we needed anything. Umm, yeah..how about a table, duh! He took us down a hallway past some really gross benches that needed to be reupholstered (and who needs... More

I have been to Baja a lot. Sat inside and out. It's a cheap but good bar with above average bar food that has a twist. Sort of mexican (nachos, YUM!). I wouldn't say one of the best restaurants in Richmond but if you're around or live in the area it's worth a visit. Beautiful outside deck (view of the... More

The food is not that great and but the drinks are cheap, the staff is friendly but they are definitely in need of hiring a few more people. Great place for drinks outside on the patio.

Went there for a nice saturday afternoon lunch and beers: 1) sign said "wait at gate for patio seating", so we did and waited and waited. We just sat on our own and at that point, the staff stated to just ignore the sign; 2) overall a filthy restaurant with disgusting bathrooms; 3) no wait staff for us but other... More

The food was okay, nothing special. I'd rather go to a Mexican restaurant. The outdoor patio is a nice place to sit and drink though.

This is one of my must-stop places not only in the Fan, but in Richmond. The food is great, beer is cheap, love the atmosphere and outdoor seating. Bartenders are friendly and Jeff, the owner is often there to say hi. My cousin actually booked Baja for her wedding reception and fun was had by our entire family! We always... More

Honestly I have never been to a restaurant so filthy in such a great location. Loved the outdoor sitting but indoors it was a nightmare with good food. How such a dichotomy exists I have no idea. Service was fine but the bathrooms will prevent any return. ever. Unless you guys prove to me otherwise.

We came to this place around 7 pm on a Saturday night. We all did the race earlier that day and we were looking for an place outside to hang out, get some drinks and food. At least they got the outdoor part right. It's a college hang out place. It took 20 minutes to get the server's attention. As... More
