Baja Mexican Cuisine: Delicious Food Delivered Right to Your Door

Written by:

Baja — this is the Spanish word for the classic fish taco that originated in Baja California, Mexico, and the preparation referred to in the U.S. as “Baja-style.” Lucky for Mile Square locals, we’ve got our own Baja-style restaurant right here — Baja Mexican Cuisine. This restaurant, located at 104 14th Street, has been the charbroil Tex-Mex destination for locals since 1987. The family-owned + operated restaurant is the place to go for delicious Mexican grill combinations, top-notch margaritas, classic sangria, and one of the largest collections of 100% blue agave tequilas in the state.

Now, although we might not get to physically go to Baja right now, given COVID-19 related closures, this local spot is still open for delivery + pick up in Hoboken — here’s what you need to know:

The Experience

When things do run normally again, here’s what you can expect from the Baja Mexican Cuisine experience. The exterior of the restaurant is painted in traditional Mexican colors that have been used to bring warmth and life to their native pueblos. The bright yellow, turquoise, and red paint bring a vibrancy to 14th Street. During the warm seasons + when things are fully open again, customers have the option of sitting outside in their front patio area. A fun neon sign hangs in the window that reads “Baja” alongside cacti, decorative musicians, and 3D lizards.

Back inside, the interior is dimly lit, perfect for a romantic evening but bright enough to admire the hand-painted murals of Mexican art. The vibrant colors continue throughout the inside and provide the perfect backdrop for the traditional Mexican sculptures and cultural masks. The Mexican folk art known as papel picado {pecked paper} hangs from the ceiling, adding to the colorful and festive vibe.

The Menu

Some of Baja’s best-sellers are chile con queso with chips, the fajita salad, the Burrito Texano, fresh guacamole with chips, and the grilled skirt steak quesadilla. Other delicious options include the ceviche, caldo de camarones, the caldo xo-chil, and a whopping 11 options of quesadillas.

Vegetarian’s also have no shortage of options with at least 10 choices of dishes on the menu, including enchiladas de espinaca, chimichangas ee vegetables, fajitas, tacos, and burritos. But don’t stop there — the seafood, chicken, and beef options are mouth-watering, endless, and are great to enjoy at home when you order.

Finally, for the inevitable dessert order {because #treatyoself}, there are six delectable options, but we recommend getting the tres leches, sopapillas {a kind of fried pastry}, or the choco banana.
