Baja Mexican Grill

Baja Mexican Grill is, in our opinion, one of the best-kept secrets, and best places to find Mexican food, in the city. It’s a very unimposing building in a strip shopping center, but once you are inside, you are home. It’s just such a great neighborhood place.

Baja’s has some unusual and different enchilada combinations, such as the Jennifer’s plate (sour cream chicken enchiladas topped with sauteed vegetables) and the guacamole enchiladas (steak fajita enchiladas with delicious guacamole sauce). Their Baja Ranch Platter is a huge appetizer platter with quesadillas, nachos, stuffed jalapenos, and flautas, with queso, sour cream, and guacamole for dipping. Their chicken items are great as well – we like the Pollo Poblano which is a chicken breast topped with poblano cream sauce with sauteed mushrooms and onions.

Here is the Jennifer’s plate – does this not look super delicious?

The side dishes at Baja are definitely head and shoulders above other Mexican places. Rather than the standard Mexican rice and refried beans, with most menu items you get to choose from among several delicious side item choices. Our favorite is the roasted corn, but you can also get sauteed veggies, black beans, charro beans, white rice with poblanos and veggies, and of course Mexican rice and refried beans if you are determined to go with the old standby.

Of course, we could not end this review without a mention of the great margaritas. They are tasty but very strong. If you’re a lightweight, we recommend ordering the “baby” size margarita, which is a 12 oz mug and plenty for most people.

Baja’s is located at 1228 William D. Tate Avenue in Grapevine, just north of Highway 114.

    This place is great. I eat here all the time, at least on the weekends. Their Brisket Burritos and fantastic!

      This place is amazing. Perhaps too good! My favorite is the carnitas tacos. I have also had several other dishes and they all have been great. Also, the margaritas are a must!

    Love Baja Grill. I get it “to-go” every few weeks. But agree, it is one of the best kept secrets around. Maybe it will stay that way.

    I also like Los Cabos off of Dooley and Tx 26. Great food, but off the beaten track a little and usually not too crowded so you can get right in.

    I agree about Los Cabos; we’ve been there a number of times and will probably review it at some point. No shortage of local Tex-Mex joints in town which is GREAT.

    We’ve also been to Los Amigos across NW Highway; it’s not quite as good, but then it is BYOB which is always nice.
