Loved the steak burrito! We also tried the fish tacos and chicken burrito but my favorite is the steak burrito. I didn't actually like their famous fish taco but I'm really not a fish person. Come by around 11am-3pm to avail of the lunch specials.

This is by far my favorite Mexican restaurant in Oakland ahead of El Taco Zamerano. The steak and prawn burrito is my go to, but I also will get the two taco combo. If you are only going to visit once you definitely need to try the fish tacos. They have fresh salsa available everyday and their horchata is the... More

I travel coast-to-coast and always order the fish tacos when on a menu. These are the best - fresh, full and delicious. No square fish in these tacos!.

Just what I wanted - fresh ingredients and not much fuss. A perfect set of fish tacos. Good atmosphere, too.

I really enjoyed my chicken burrito and the different salsas from the salsa bar. My fav was the chipotle salsa. My family had tacos and quesadillas and everyone liked their food. I also had the mango juice which you could tell was fresh. We sat on the patio which reminded me of sitting outside at someone's house. Would definitely go... More

We get takeout from Baja a few times a month! Their food is fresh and tasty, and their menu has traditional and more creative options. I love the prawn quesadilla.

...that you can find Mexican food this flavorless in the bay area, a mexican food mecca. Awful food. Nice backyard patio, though.

Located on trendy Piedmont Ave., this taqueria has been around for a long time. I especially like the chicken burrito, which comes with ample tortilla chips.
