“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

A group of about 20 of us decided to meet at this property. When doing a large group, it is expected that service is not the best but this lunch was an exception. Our waitress was excellent.

The salsa is great. Having spent 20 years in Tucson, I enjoy a good salsa and they have it down. The food was very good and typical of a restaurant of this type. Which means, not in the southwest but doing a good job of providing nice options for Mexican cuisine.

This would be a stop on my list when in the area. It isn't a pretty place from the outside but very nice inside and a great place for lunch or dinner. And, the prices were very good, as well.

“So Fresh & So Clean Clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

First timer. Stopped in for lunch. Outside of building is misleading. Very nice atmosphere inside and clean. Ordered tacos in a blanket--DELICIOUS! Salsa was tastey as well. Server was friendly, but service was ok. Food was great--will definitely be back.

“Fun and relaxed lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

My friend and I stopped in K-38 Baja Grill after visiting the Landfall Tradition golf tournament on Friday. We were immediately sited and attentively serviced by Carmen. We both had a quesadilla plate and beverages. Since it was not busy, we didn't feel rush or hurried.

DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED !!!
