Want a taste of Mexican flavors? Add however much cilantro, pico de gallo, spicy or mild salsa, or mango salsa that you want! The variety is so remarkable that a meat lover, gluten free vegan, and vegetarian can all dine here at the same time. From fish (grilled or fried) tacos, to salads, to hearty combination meals, there is something... More

Stopped for lunch while driving through Salem. The staff was friendly, the restaurant was clean, and we received our food in a short amount of time. The burritos are huge and delicious, and the tacos are good, although small, so order more than one. If you have to eat fast food, this is a healthy option. I love all the... More

Baja Fresh offered fresh, delicious food at a reasonable price. The staff were friendly, and we came back more than once during our stay in Salem. We will definitely be back!

Stopped here yesterday knowing we would not be disappointed. Food is always good, and if you have a problem they are very willing to correct it. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We had Mango Chipolte Chicken Salad, our favorite.

There are oodles of eating places in Salem but my husband chose here because we had 4 grandchildren along. They could order whatever they wanted--and it was all healthy food! The staff were very friendly and helpful so we shared the extra birthday cake with them ;-)

Our favorite Mexican food - fast, fresh, and fairly priced. Every Baja Fresh is great, but Salem's is the "cream of the crop" (better managed?). Don't forget to download coupons from their website to make the value even better.

This restaurant was unclean & cluttered looking, and the food was extremely disappointing. There was almost no value or appeal to the fish taco combo that we ordered. Very ill conceived and prepared. Perhaps the best thing about our meal was the free warm chips and our glasses of water. Will most certainly never go back. UGH!!

Watch out when you order, because the food is huge. Be sure not to order two burritos or you will be taking one of them home. The food is fresh including the salsa. Very satisfying fare at a good price.

After making a last minute stop at Lancaster Mall my group decided it was time for lunch. My husband spotted a Baja Fresh and asked if we'd like to try it. After looking at the menu my friends opted for the chicken taquitos and her husband had the chicken bowl. My husband and I both had the two taco lunch.... More

My mom is on a very low sodium diet and while traveling we decided to have lunch. There were many choices to make on an endless street. After unsuccesfully trying to get into Olive Garden (too crowded) we decided to find something else and stumbled across Baja Fresh. We asked the counter girl if my mom's meal can have no... More
