There’s another great fast-casual eatery in Costa Mesa: Baja Fish Tacos. It’s not a stranger to OC, the original and always crowded Baja Fish opened in Santa Ana more than a decade ago, with two others in Laguna Hills and Laguna Niguel.
Its founder Julio A. Gutierrez incorporates family and friends’ recipes from throughout Mexico. Some say they have the best tacos in Orange County, which is saying a lot (and we don’t have the energy for that touchy argument). The fact is that Baja Fish Tacos makes fresh and tasty chicken tacos, carne asada tacos, blackened fish taco, grilled fish tacos and more.
They also have a great salsa bar (marinated onions are the best); OK, some say that the portions are small, but not really, especially the nachos, which are too generous. Two taco combo meal—(most popular by far) comes with choice of meat, white seasoned rice and your choice of black beans, or pinto beans, which are favorites ($7.60).
