“Its Homey In a Bar Kind of Way with Good Cheap Tacos”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

It was Tuesday and so it was taco night, with several variety all for one dollar. Best was the grilled chicken but the black beans, refried beans, beef, and shredded chicken are recommended. This is cheap eats at its best. The wait staff was fine. The atmosphere was more bar like than restaurant in the basement of an old house but with nice exposed brick walls and low ceilings. This place was near Richmond's popular Cary Street and has off-street parking and many outside tables with a supporting bar. Typical Mexican fare but those grilled chicken hard tacos were just excellent.

Awesome taco salad, and you can't beat 1/2 off quesadilla night on Wednesdays!! Awesome drink prices too and great place to hang out with friends on the outside patio when the weather is nice!

“Bad food, fake booze”
Reviewed June 24, 2009

Baja Bean attracts lots of Fan neighborhood folks and college kids primarily because of their inviting patio and cheap beer, but the food has greatly deteriated over the years. It's as if someone 10 years ago wrote an interesting menu, and since then no one in charge has ever bothered to taste what comes out of their kitchen. What's more the bartenders play tricks. They run a special on premium tequila. You say great, bring me a Patron Anejo on the rocks! This happened to me. They brought me a glass of cheap clear tequila that tastes like bitter rock-gut tequila. But this wasn't what tipped me off - and I'm guessing most people would probably just politely sip their drink - Patron Anejo has an amber color, it isn't clear like vodka! This kind of crappy service is ghetto.
