Okay--I am from Texas but a restaurant with no queso dip??? No ground beef tacos only steak for the beef option. Fajitas had a ranchero sauce over them that tasted Like tomato paste. Good tortillas. The enchiladas s looked like the best thing on the menu. We used valet parking for $8 and that worked out okay. Cute decor. Service... More

We stopped here twice. Once for margaritas and appetizers over lunch. Another time for late night margaritas. Fun atmosphere upstairs. Order the mega margaritas if you are not driving. Good value and very tasty.

Service was so good, food was even better! Had the Chile Verde Burrito........... DEFINITELY one of the BEST burritos I've had! Will definitely be coming back here for another one! Was there at later at night so I can't say too much for the ambiance.

Enjoyed a nice dinner at Baja Cantina. We ate outside in the patio by a very nice fire pit. The wait staff was attentive and provided excellent recommendations for our dinner. She recommended the fresh catch fish tacos, which were very good. One of my cohorts mentioned that his margarita was very strong - how he liked it. We found... More

We stopped here after looking at the reviews on tripadvisor. The food and drinks were very good as was the service. We had Sangria and Baja margarita's. I would recommend the meatball soup and the Tijuana taxi entrée.

This place has been around for ever and it's still fun. The food is good and you never know when a celeb will walk in. Is is always a festive atmosphere and their margaritas are excellent.

We came in on a Tues night during happy hour, which meant 2 for 1 margaritas and all you can eat tacos. Our son thought he had gone to heaven!

Always a great place to visit. I tend to visit after 3pm. Happy hour starts then. Great menu, very authentic, great bar staff and extremely inviting. Later at night one can listen to music. There are times of the year (5th May) when this place is wild..... But great.

I will say - trip advisor let me down on this one! It is definitely not what TA portrayed. The food is mediocre at best, they DO NOT have queso dip, salsa is okay; however, service is good and the plates are huge portions. The flavor of the food is definitely not my cup of tea and I wouldn't recommend... More

Had an early dinner together with a good friend. Nice to sit outside. Had a taco dinner with a couple of beers. The service was pretty good and the location is ok.
