“Hot! and Friendly”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Baja Betty's isn't so much of a restaurant, but a combination of a cruisy Gay Bar, and Fast Food Restaurant. The staff are (extremely) friendly, the clientele are all up for a wild time, and the food is good. Drinks are not exaubatantly priced, a glass of Chardonnay is $6-8 dollars, but then it is an unmeasured glasss, and if the (Cheeky) Latino serving you, likes you then you get a half-decent glug of wine. The wine itself is good, and the food is freshly cooked. Mad! but its the kind of place you just have to go back to!

“Awesome nachos!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Great party atmosphere in a cool SD neighborhood. We searched for the best nachos in San Diego and found them! The plate was piled high with the toppings we chose: cheese, olives, beans, tomatoes. Yum! We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was a party inside. The margaritas and sangrias were excellent and generous. Our server was a lot of fun and attentive. We passed on the popular buffet for the nachos and the two of us could not finish the small order. The bar and restaurant were crowded but not obnoxious. The decorations and buzz made this a fun afternoon. Good neighborhood to walk around.

“Great buffet”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We went for their Sunday brunch. The buffet was phenomenal. Tacos, fresh fruits, and of course waffles and pancakes. Delicious place, good price for good food. The mimosas tasted kind of funny to me, but I think it was because the champagne was a little dry for my taste.

“Welcoming Hillcrest Neighborhood!”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

We went to San Diego for a 1 week pre-Christmas vacation. No wonder they call it "The Finest City". We had a great time! Looking forward to get to know Hillcrest, we went to have lunch and drinks (best Margaritas around!!) at Baja Betty's. What a place, with such welcoming people and a perfect festive ambience , Baja Betty's is top in my list of neighborhood bars in the Hillcrest area. Courtney took care of us and gave us a virtual tour of the area. Excellent hostess! We liked the place so much that after a walk around the area we went back to have more Margaritas. Mayra, was delightful as well. I would like to congratulate the management for such a good work! I understand that other business around the area belong to Mo'universe and I bet the same ambiance permeates around their venues. If you are in San Diego, go there, be there, because they care!
