This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. We have tried many in surrounding towns but keep coming back to this one. Have been eating here since is was just a small hole in the wall with just four tables. You can't beat the value or the taste. Don't let it's location in a strip mall deter you from... More

Back in town for a short visit. Haven't been here for a few years - miss it! It was so nice to be back in an old familiar place. Glad to say it hasn't changed much. The chips and salsa bar are still a big hit. We enjoyed the fish burrito, shrimp cocktails, and the old favorite, frozen mango marguerita.... More

But overall it was... More

No pretense at Baja just consistently very good food. We eat here every so often and are never disappointed. You get a basket of tortilla chips when you order - they are very good - not the best in the area but far from the worst! To accompany the chips there is a salsa bar with a number of selections...

We've been patronizing Baja's for over 20 years. It's the best Mexican restaurant in the greater New Haven area. The food is consistently good and we've never been disappointed. The restaurant itself could use some freshening up, but that might be one reason why the prices are so reasonable as you're not paying for an upgraded decor.

This venerable restaurant started years ago by a West Coast transplant and his his wife took Mexican cuisine up a notch by focusing on the dishes and authentic flavors they were familiar with from Baja and Catalan. It worked! A popular place, it has now become a familiar, almost neighborhood place. No wonder - the menu has remained close to... More

We have been regular customers for nore than 10 years. Baja is consistently the best in fresh, authentic Mexican food. It s famly owned, the chef is a true Mexican chef. Every meal tastes fresh and delicious. We have tried all menu items, there are no losers. Fresh chips and guacamole is one of our favorites--they are addicting.

No pretenses at Baja's Mexican Restaurant. Bare bones decor and very casual. Excellent margaritas and a nice selection of Mexican and domestic beers. The menu is quite extensive and the food is consistently good. Excellent chips and a great selection of salsas from mild to super-hot.

When visiting my brother in law, we typically go to Baja's several times. The food is always great and the salsa bar is fantastic. The margaritas are sneaky-good. The service here is exceptional. Lindsey never forgets what everyone likes- her memory is amazing! Eat here- you won't be disappointed. Then take a nap because you'll be in a Mexicoma!
