Baja Grill in Wormtown/Worcester

Thanks to the chowhounds who alerted me to this way cool spot. Located in a lower income quiet part of Worc. this little gem is worthy of your attention. We arrived Sunday at 3 for a pre birthday luncheon. The place is sparkling clean and the staff so attentive and welcoming. We loved the homemade tortilla chips and two salsas. We had a lovely Mexican soda and enjoyed the nice traditional music. Mom chose chicken enchiladas and I had the pollo en mole. Mom's was an app but it came with rice, salad and we shared pico de gallo, homemade amazing guac, frijoles a la charra and refried beans. The food was fabulous. The seasoning perfect and the presentation artful. The house treated Mom to a tres leche bollo with a candle. The bill 22.00 plus tip.

Please support this eatery. Their luncheon specials are 5.95 each. This is beyond absurd. The best authentic Mexican I have enjoyed in years...please try it..

LOVE THIS PLACE..wish I lived closer ...

    I've eaten their tamales twice in two days they're so good. Wednesday night they were pretty crowded, which means the word is getting out.. There's finally great Mexican in Worcester!

      Dynamite Mexican. Worcester so deserved REAL Mexican fare and this is it. I'll be posting more soon and visiting Baja a lot more also.

      We discovered this place about a year ago and have gone back at least monthly. If you like Mexico-style, rather than Tex-Mex, you'll love this restaurant's offerings. We've sampled the cochinita pibil, enchiladas, tacos al pastor, chicken with mole, sopes, queso fundido, and burrito -- and loved them all! And the BYOB option is a real plus!
