“good feeling - food is good - bar also - prices fair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

The best part: they have early bird - little snacks with your beer or drink untill 6 p.m. - excellent prices. Regular meals are also good. Music is also nice and overall very pleasant. Crazy interior - and good service. Many golfers from golf course show up - as well as locals - farmers and millionaers - all mixed. Relaxed atmosphere.

“Casual Tex Mex in Fun Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Exhausted from the day's travel, we chose the Baja Cantina because it was casual and didn't require reservations. Food was very good -- pitcher of Margaritas was exactly what we needed. Traditional chips & salsa for starters although I was surprised the waiter had never heard of queso? We enjoyed the meal, atmosphere & waitstaff.

“Amazing guac!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Stopped here twice on a recent trip. The guacamole is fresh and delicious and the menu has great choices. Loved the patio outside making it a perfect spot for happy hour. Service was friendly and prices are reasonable. Give it a try!
