I have eaten at this location several times and it has been worthy of a re-visit. Today, I tried the Shrimp Taco Combo and the shrimps did not sit well on my stomach. The shrimps were very salty and heavily coated in a butter/wine sauce. I suffered for a few hours afterward. Not sure if this was a one-time issue... More

The prawn and cabbage taco is amazing. The food is always fresh and tasty here, the self serve bar is almost as great as the food itself.

BFT is a great choice for healthy, fresh Mexican food. Prices can be very reasonable depending on what you order. There's a fresh salsa bar with the best pico de gallo in town! It is one of our "go to" places for this family of 5.

We go to Baha Fish Tacos quite often. It is inexpensive, tasty and quick. The people here are very pleasant and attentive and the service is very quick.

This place had the best guacamole and Pico de Gallo. The steak was tender with great flavor. Everything tasted very fresh and seasoned perfectly.

Being from Chicago, my standards are set pretty high for Mexican food. Baja did not disappoint me whatsoever. The guacamole was fresh and delicious, the steak was marinated and seasoned perfectly, and the salsa was very savory. $8.50 for a huge burrito was well worth it

Staff were very friendly. We'd never been here and asked about a dish we should get. We were told to get the shrimp burritos... They did not disappoint.
