Good food, good prices, friendly staff

My wife wanted to try something new for her birthday and had never been to Baja Bean so she picked there. The restaurant is small, but we were seated quickly.

This review is for the Charlottesville Baja, but I've dined at the one in Staunton and its food is just as good. The service is really wonderful; always have fast and friendly servers. The salsa is so fresh and you might be tempted to fill up on it before your meal comes, but stop yourself! The quality that sets Baja... More

We were a party of 15 that just showed up. They were quick to pull tables together. The service was great (quick and friendly). The chips before dinner were good and came with three different types of sauces.

We usually get takeout from Baja Bean, but recently had lunch there. I still think it is the best Mexican place in town, with the most original things on the menu. They seem to use more imagination in their offerings than most, using, for example, various cheeses and veggies. And best of all, all this great food is always served... More

This is our go-to restaurant with our 3 kids (1, 3, and 5). My husband I have been going here for many years and it's always great food. The prices meet our budget and the restaurant participates in a local coupon points program (app is called Cardigan) so that every dollar we spend there accrues and gets us free food.... More

Our server was polite, though despite being very empty (which should've been a clue), he messed up two aspects of our order, and seemed really flustered and overworked--maybe he was doing some homework in between visits to our table. But the reason for the two star review is the food. The nachos we started with were decent, but definitely the... More

The correct location is 2291 Seminole La. , across from the Doirble Tree hotel. Great dinner with the Bada Bing chilada , great prices, in my opinion too low. Large portions. The bada bing has pesto sauteed chicken, artichokes, two cheeses, spinach and some other goodies all in a large whole wheat tortilla. Incredible combination. Huge menu.

On a delayed flight from CHO we decided to grab an early dinner at Baja, a favorite for Mexican cuisine. These good folks have always accommodated my allergens to lactose, gluten and soy by committing to prepare my favorite fajitas without vegetable oil mixed into the vegetables and meat. Before the fajitas were prepared with only a slight touch of... More

We were greeted and immediately shown to seats. The restaurant was clean. We had fajitas, chicken and steak. Sides were great, which included a nice fresh gucamole. The flour tortillas were grilled. The salsa was a freshly made and delicious. We will be going back.
