“Not impressed this time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

I'm afraid I was not impressed with the Baja Cantina this visit. Have eaten there multiple times before and always enjoyed the food.

This time, it was not a good as in times past. The chips were so overly salty, I had to try and brush the salt off to enjoy them.

The enchilada, tamale and black bean taco were all just mediocre and somewhat bland. And the prices are considerably higher than our last visit a year ago.

We ate earlier than usual, 5:00 pm and there were not many people there at the time so we were seated promptly and served quickly.

I feel bad, as I had always held Baja Cantina high on my list. I may struggle with the idea of returning anytime soon.

“Flautas were great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Someone recommended the flautas here, tried them and they were great. Salsa was also very good. Also had the Santa Fe Enchiladas and really liked them. Hubby tried the burrito and it was just so so.

“The best Mexican in Park City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

This is our go to place for Mexican in the Salt Lake area. We often forgo anything in the SL valley to visit Baja Cantina. We've always found the staff friendly and overly helpful - constantly filling your glass; asking if everything is okay, etc. The salsa is the best we've tasted on either side of the boarder. Love the enchiladas! Fun to look at the old Park City mining photos in the hall to the restrooms (of all places!). Bottom line is that I would recommend the BC to anyone in the hunt for an excellent meal in a friendly place. Also, they had no problem with my British accent! They might have confused me with Ringo Starr!

“Dinner with the family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The food is great, sometimes the service is questionable. But the food keeps us coming back. Great chips and salsa. The fried ice cream scores a 10
