Baja Fresh - Review #1

Baja Fresh Exterior

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:

on august 26 , 2008 i got take out chicken tostada at
baja fresh in corona del mar, ca. 3050 e. coast hwy.
taking my second bite in bit into a piece of razor blade. i filed a police report in newport beach the officer took a full report of the incident . since then corporate office has refused my calls and even worse
i was referred to "human resourses" ..... i call customer
relations . spoke to someone called "kay" refused to give me her last name. no reply. Patricia Bailey of H.R. refuses to return my calls.
General Manager - Roberto Rivas at baja fresh in corona del mar referred me to "human Resourses" to take the heat off his hands.
since then i have suffered from many sleepless nights of wondering what would have happened if i
had swallowed the razor blade.....it makes me sick
thinking that i had this forgien object in my mouth.
and where did it come from ????
who's hands had it been in????i will never eat at a
baja fresh again.....i am taking this to the media.
who will be the next victim?? and die from this
obsurd stupidity.
