Baja is our family favorite. My kids love their salsa (fresh) and chips and even eat the spinach enchiladas. It's Cali-Mex and delish!

Lunch specials are hard to beat. Two of us ate for under $15 with a good tip included. Everything was fresh and very good. Service was with a smile. Chips and salsa were served first. Chips were still warm and the salsa freshly made. Brown and green sauces provided at the table provide a smoky kick to the main courses.... More

I've eaten at Baja Bean many times over a couple of decades. It's my go-to for Mexican in Charlottesville. The entrees are many, and the quality is consistently good. The service is friendly. The value is good. I especially like the Enchiladas Monteray.

Haven't found a great Mexican place, but this one is OK. Service is friendly and its cheap, cheap. Food is a "B."

We eat here frequently as a family of 5 with 3 young kids. The food is always good, but the service is inconsistent. Friendly for the most part, but certain wait staff are slow and inattentive. Not a big deal, but frustrating with young kids. My personal favorite dish is the "So Gouda Tacos". Delicious! In the mood for a... More

This review is for the Charlottesville Baja, but I've dined at the one in Staunton and its food is just as good. The service is really wonderful; always have fast and friendly servers. The salsa is so fresh and you might be tempted to fill up on it before your meal comes, but stop yourself! The quality that sets Baja... More

My wife wanted to try something new for her birthday and had never been to Baja Bean so she picked there. The restaurant is small, but we were seated quickly. The staff was very nice and helpful in answering our questions. Our food was served quickly and it was very good (as far as Mexican restaurant food goes). My wife... More

We were a party of 15 that just showed up. They were quick to pull tables together. The service was great (quick and friendly). The chips before dinner were good and came with three different types of sauces.

We usually get takeout from Baja Bean, but recently had lunch there. I still think it is the best Mexican place in town, with the most original things on the menu. They seem to use more imagination in their offerings than most, using, for example, various cheeses and veggies. And best of all, all this great food is always served... More
