Mexican Food in Worcester -- Baja Grill
I am reaching out to all of you in the Worcester area who love Mexican food. If you have not dined at Baja Grill lately or ever (shame on you!), you’re missing out on something very special. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Baja Grill, it is the real deal – traditional Mexican cuisine as well as fajitas and burritos, all made with healthful ingredients. My husband and I went last night, and as always, the food was muy exquisito! We split an order of melt-in-your-mouth tamales as appetizers. Then came beef and chicken enchiladas, ordered as entrees from the appetizer menu. The enchiladas, just the right level of picante, were complemented by crumbled queso fresco and drizzled crema, and served with pinto beans and cilantro rice. We ate every bite and then split a piece of tres leches cake. Ay, ay, ay, we left happy but overly full! The entire experience -- chatting with the owner, the attentive service, and the delicious food -- was sublime.
Although the restaurant doesn’t have a liquor license, it is BYOB with no corkage fee. For budget-conscious diners, this is a great way to keep costs down and still enjoy a drink.
By the way, I am writing all this because it's astonishing that more people haven't discovered this gem.
