We are in the Mesa area once a year and stop by Baja Joe's at LEAST once each trip (this case, it was twice!). Most comments are right: it's great food, has two areas (a bit of a sports bar, but still comfortable for eating), authentic food/drinks and great staff. We go with a pair of friends that have been... More

This place has a mix of everything - Mexican, Tex-Mex, Seafood, American, and is a sports bar with sports on every television. Their beer list is pretty standard, nothing to write home about. I got a Blue Moon. As for the food, it is just ok. The salsa was lacking the proper spices, kinda bland. I got the shrimp fajita... More

We visit Baja Joe's at least once a month, otherwise the cravings are to much to handle! I have tried so many of the dishes, but my one go to is the ceviche. They have a variety of ceviche to choose from, but I always get the one with scallops. My husband loves their shrimp tacos, which are amazing. They... More

This is a Mexican beach cantina themed place that is awesome. The seafood is fresh and prepared well. The menu is huge. Great drinks and we saw a band called Outside The Line, they were amazing. I recommend the shrimp cocktail!

This place was great! You know it's a good sign when the place is already packed at 5:00, and we were not disappointed. The staff was so nice and helpful and the food was delicious, AUTHENTIC Mexican. I also had the LA Pinta margarita made with pomegranate tequila and it was fantastic, as well as the best carnitas I've ever... More

After one of our favorite spots for Mexican food shut down, we were seeking a new experience. Headed to this nondescript little spot to give it a shot after reading the reviews on a number of sites. Amazing food and excellent service. The large menu covers all the bases and the food does not disappoint. Bring a big appetite as... More

My wife and I decided to give Baja Joes another chance. Our first time here we had our 4 year old with us and he decided right after we ordered our food to throw a bit of a tantrum. We did not have a good experience but figured it was more to do with our son than the place. The... More

I went on a Monday with a group of about 20, having made reservations in advance. I selected the restaurant because it was more than just tacos and burritos. I had a happy hour appetizer of wings, which I didn't realize were just Buffalo wings. I wouldn't do that again. My main course was a fish filet smothered in the... More

The restaurant specializes in Sinaloan-style seafood and Mexican dishes. Among its signature specialties are shrimp ceviche and cocktails, plus two dishes that can be shared, parrillada Mariscos, a combination of shrimp, lobster and fish prepared in a variety of ways, and parrillada Mexicana, a variety of grilled meats. The menu also features traditional enchiladas, tacos, burritos and chimichangas. Also serving great classics like wings, stuffed burgers, nachos, chicken strips and more. Great music, live 5 days a week, fill the place with a festive attitude and the separate bar is great for watching sporting events and the patio is a great place to decompress like a beach without the sand
