“Very good food / excellent staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

The best Baja Fresh I have been too. The food is super fresh and gets to you quickly and the staff is fantastic. I made a few requests with my order and was met with a smile and the food came out perfectly. The salsa bar was fully stocked with a great array of salsa's. A great place to eat.

“Good Naked Buritto Bowl”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

Trying to watch the carbs, we always order the bare (or naked) burrito at Baja Fresh. It's delicious and healthy as far as fast food goes. Get the black bean option. Sour cream is optional, but low in carbs, so if you're doing Atkins, it works. The service is fast and there's always lots of different salsas to add to the meal. You can set outside on the patio or enjoy your food indoors.

“Consistently good, but watch the calories!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

As other reviewers have noted, Baja Fresh is fast food Mexican. It's made to order, and tastes good. Upon entry, you find a clean, well lit facility with plenty of activity behind the counter. The cooking area is in plain sight, so you can see how clean they keep things. In fact, when the counter help is not behind the counter, they are efficiently cleaning up or bringing food out tio the tables (even though they call numbers for food pickup).

My biggest complaints are the calories in the food. Wow! Look acrefully as many of the dihes they serve are well over 600 calories! Even the "skinny" bowls are fairly high in calories. That basket of chips and salsa are 700 calories! If you get the tacos, you are on the right track.

My other complaint is the tables. Almost all of the table are tall with high stools. The round tables are too small for a group of 3. Outdoor seating limited, but nice.

I disagree with the reviewer that thinks this restaurant is out of the way. The shopping center in which it is located is just off the 101 freeway, close to a bunch of shopping.

We were pleasantly impressed with the service on our last visit. Friendly faces. Efficient attention to requests. They will even bring your food out and clean the tables.

Overall, this Baja Fresh provides consistently good food in a clean and friendly environment.

“Very good, always consistent.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

Have eaten at this location many times. Always good, very clean, fast and friendly. No complaints at all. The location is a little out of the way (for us anyway), which is why we don't eat there more often... but when we go to do our shipping at Trader Joe's, we often stop in here, since it is next door.
