“Great Margaritas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

Service was poor. Margaritas were excellent. Beef Quesidillas lacked flavor and did not come with any sides (no pico/sour cream/guacamole), refried beans left a paste on your palette due to lard, tacos and beef enchiladas were very good. Chips and salsa were good but served in such small quantities that you have to "bother" rude wait staff for refill. You may want to bring your own napkins because you'll have a difficult time getting wait staff's attention for one.

“Surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

Always passed by this place and never knew how good it was until new friends invited us for dinner. First of us the place is loud so I you want a quiet place forget it. Second, the margueritas are good by strong. If you have two you may be unable to drive. And finally, the fish tacos and guacamole are absolutely the best! ENJOY!

“Consistent food - lively atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

We visit baja a few times a month. Their salsa and chips are a great starter as with any Mexican meal. I perfer the guacamole enchiladas with a side of corn and rice. My wife gets the Chipotle enchiladas which are always great. Don't miss out on the tacos and queso either. Its a bit loud and the wait can sometimes be very long but worth the wait.

“Great Margaritas Terrible Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Baja Grill has excellent margaritas and good food but TERRIBLE service. I went one night and put out party of two on the waiting list. Then I saw several parties that arrived after us seated before us. I went to the hostess to ask where we were on the list and she said she did not see us. Then I pointed to our coordinating buzzer number on the list then they sat us right away.

We went again tonight and we were seated then ten minutes passed and no one came by to get drink order or anything. I again went to the hostess and asked if they knew who our waiter was because we has been sitting there for ten minutes. No apologizes, no explanation then five minutes later someone finally shows up.

The margaritas are the only thing that keep me coming back. The food is good but nothing to write home about. The service is horrendous.

“Great food, terrible service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

It's defiantly a good place to eat. The brisket tacos are amazing. The Rita's are great, they are really strong so be careful. The bartender was nice. But the servers are terrible. If I go, plan on great food, but bad service.
