Everyone I know has always raved about this place. I had to try it for myself. Shrimp Tacos are amazing. Serving size is about average. Not a real bargain price wise, but the quality of the food is top notch. I recommend ordering your food...online and avoiding the line that's usually out the door.More

Adjacent to Vons. There is always a line out the door, so I had high expectations. I recommend placing your order in advance so you don't have to wait. We placed our order online and their system was pretty easy to use. The food was...ready at the promised time and pick-up was quick and easy. I ordered the Ensenada fish burrito, which includes fried fish, seasoned rice, beans, cabbage, baja sauce and guacamole. Now either it was the smallest amount of guac imaginable or they straight up forgot it altogether because I didn't notice any at all. So that was a let down. Everything tasted great, but for a $10 price tag, it didn't knock my socks off. Also, the size wasn't massive, so the value isn't there either.More

I try to hit this every time in am in Santa Ana and had another great visit with some great Shrimp Tacos. Brought a friend this time and he did two different versions of the Fish Taco's and they were fantastic. Totally worth a visit.

We eat here about once a week, and love it. The grilled fish tacos are amazing, and the guac is top notch. I think the food is amazing- it's about $32 for two people with entrees and chips/guac - not cheap, but not expensive. Recently,...I have noticed them getting cheap with the size of the fish in the tacos, but still my favorite fish tacos in OC. And the lines at lunch time support that!More

This place is in a shopping center and always has a line out the door (but your order at a counter right inside and the wait isn’t bad). The burritos are huge, tasty, and at a great value for the amount of food you get....I have also gotten the unwrapped burrito as something lighter where it’s a salad with guacamole and your choice of meat. They also have tacos, enchiladas and different combos with various meat and seafood options. Great spot for solid Mexican food at a great value.More

You know this place has great street tacos when you see fire fighters and police officers in line. The food is authentic Baja style. Well prepared and delicious. You can choose between traditional battered or grilled fish. Beans are either refried or black, your choice....Other things are on the menu but this is a fish tacos store. A salsa bar is available and quite popular. Expect a line as customers with large to-go orders fill a lot of plastic cups with salsas and pickled veggies. No table service. Order and pick-up at the counter although employees are circulating through the facility and are always helpful. Very family friendly like Mexico. Large groups are common. Pretty loud but fun! Beer happy hour!More

Drove by going someplace else in the mall and saw a line out the door and decided that I needed to give it a try. Came back after the lunch rush and was treated to some great Shrimp Tacos. Flavors were great and I totally...get why there was a line. Marking as one of my favorites when I come back to the area.More

When it comes to fresh-made tacos and guacamole, few locations beat BAJA Fresh South Bristol! It’s a simple celebration of basic Mexican offerings at their casual best! So fun! And strangers chip in with welcome, friendly, hellos” and eager-to-please suggestions! “Food makes family!!” I’ve never...not had fun! Sit out side and pretend you’re in BAJA! Heck, you nearly are!

Been here a few times and I always get a fish burrito. It's been consistently delicious, with a good amount of food for your money. My husband got the carne asade burrito one time and wasn't impressed, but I mean, it's called Baja FISH Tacos,...not Baja Carne Tacos :) Indoor and outdoor seating, serves beer, overall pretty good. The line can get crazy though!More
