“Bumble Bee's Baja Grill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Consistently very good / high quality healthier mexican cuisine in a fun almost cafeteria atmosphere. Home made / fresh made chips and a variety of salsas which are yummy! Price point a little high.

“Best Shrimp Tacos in the Southwest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Absolutely delicious shrimp and/or fish tacos -- freshly made, stuffed! Don't miss the flan, it's to die for. My husband had to make three trips back to this place. Friendly service, don't expect atmosphere -- the place is very clean but it's like a typicall fast food restaurant.

“Still in the rotation.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

But not as often! This used to be a "must stop" when shopping in Santa Fe, but I agree with another reviewer, it's not what it used to be. No more all you can eat chips at the salsa bar. Heck, you have to now pay additional for both! And while the burritos are still very good, when you're paying close to $8.00 for a chicken burrito, you ought to get a few chips! Maybe not all you can eat, but come on!!! The quality and portions have suffered a bit.

I think that when you've worked hard at building a customer base, you don't disenfranchise them but "cheaping out". AND I'm TOTALLY disappointed that they turned the location on Cerrillos Rd into a burger joint!!!!! REALLY???? You're rated best in Santa Fe for your Fish Tacos and you convert to burgers???

“BEST FISH BURRITOS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It's been my experience through the years that I've always gotten the best fish burritos at Bumble Bee's Cerrillos location (south toward Target center), especially for the price and ease of in-n-out dining. With options of wheat tortilla and beans instead of rice, and other customizations you might want, these burritos are hefty, generally with plenty of fish and oh so delicious sauce. Never have to wait very long. Sure miss having Bumble Bee's in Albuquerque!

“Not what it used to be =(”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I used to go here all the time -- several times/week! (I confess, I like drive-thrus). The food was always excellent and fresh if a bit pricey. Over time however, something has gotten lost. The portion size and quality have both gone down, as has customer service. My friends and I kept trying but eventually stopped going altogether as we kept getting disappointed and it was too expensive to keep giving it more chances. I gave my feedback to the manager the last time I went. I will go again at some point because it really was good but I'm not in a hurry.
