This review is going to fall victim to the fact that I am transitioning from using old-fashioned disposable cameras to my brand new digital camera. I used a disposable one at Baja Fresh and only one of the pictures turned out when I got the prints and the CD back and it wasn't even a very good one. I did a good job of arranging all the food back at my place for some photos and for some unknown reason they didn't turn out. I've had what were going to be good pictures from other restaurants not show up either and after it happened too many times I finally caved and bought a digital camera. It was a Wal-Mart special, 4.1 megapixels and it came with a bunch of accessories that you would normally have to buy separately.
There was nothing bad about the food at Baja Fresh but there was nothing really to like about it either. I also don't like that there are so many places whose name ends in "Fresh Mexican Grill." I don't even know who started it but, as far as I'm concerned, they're all at fault. The chicken tortilla soup was edible but it made me appreciate El Pollo Loco's even more. I think I'm going to actually have to PhotoShop a half Speedy Gonzales now and give Baja Fresh a two and a half Speedy Gonzales rating:
UPDATE (August 29, 2008):Here's a much better picture of the storefront taken about two and a half years later:
