Baja Fresh Mexican Grill Restaurant Review

: This scrubbed-clean West Coast-based eatery is a favorite of moviegoers, mall shoppers and students, who hang out over newspapers and a spicy meal. Burritos are king and come with so many different fillings that return visits are a must. You can eat your way through the house dishes: the Baja burrito (melted Jack cheese, guacamole, fresh salsa, grilled chicken or steak) or the burrito Mexicano (rice, beans, onion, cilantro and grilled chicken or steak). Our favorite is the Burrito Ultimo, which is pretty much the ultimate, with melted Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, chicken or steak, beans, chiles, rice and fresh salsa in a flour tortilla wrapper. The kitchen also cooks up tacos, nachos, tostadas, quesadillas and other snacks. No desserts, but no microwaves, no can openers, no MSG and no freezers either. Excellent fast food at bargain prices.
