    Baja is always one of my first stops after traveling, as I can’t get enough of their burritos and tacos and always seem to crave them when I’m away. The “tingaspicy chicken is mouth-watering good. Read more

    Everything is so fresh here. Although it has the Chipotle/ Willy's type set up, it has tons of character and I was pleasantly surprised to find it is a single location mom and pop place. :)

    Try the fish burrito or fish tacos. They make me never order them anywhere else for fear of disappointment. My norm is a small chicken burrito & its always stellar. Try the fruit tea as well. Yum!

    You can get a naked burrito if you want, it will come on a plate. I echo all sentiments on pineapple salsa (you get it yourself at the end-as much as you want!), fish, and fruit tea.

    Literally everything is good here. I love the chicken burritos with tomatillo salsa. Get a small queso to go with your chips too!

    They have fresh Salmon now! The fish tacos with Salmon are good. Corn tortillas fall apart, like alot of places. But the food is good, not amazing, but tasty and mostly fresh.

    If you're raw or you want to save on calories, ask them for a basket of romaine lettuce leaves you can dip in your salsa or guac instead of chips. They may look at you funny, but they'll accommodate.

    The fish tacos are excellent, as are all four salsas. Parking is crazy, but it's worth it. Good, cheap, family-friendly with a casual, funky vibe. Don't be discouraged by long lines - they move fast.

    Brisket tacos; no beans, no salsa, just bbq sauce, lettuce and pico de gallo. Also, there's additional parking behind Sam and Zoe's cafe if the front lot is full.

    With a much more authentic feel AND taste, baja burrito throws itself in the conversation for best burrito in Nashville. It's a bit of a trek. They DO offer queso and even chipotle flavored tortillas

    The place sells itself as San Francisco Mission-style (my hometown) burritos and I'd have to say that's the closest I've come to back home since I've moved out here. Delicious!

    Do yourself a favor and get the Texas brisket, when available. It is SO tender and flavorful. The pineapple salsa is a must, too.

    VERY excited that my fave burrito joint in the Music City now serves up local, grass fed, no hormone meats. Now if they can get around to non-GMO torts & chips, that would be HUUUUGE!

    The tomatillo salsa is a MUST! I like mixing a little hot salsa into it- perfection. The fruit tea is some of the best in town. They also sell Las Paletas popcicles, which are best enjoyed on the pati

    The burritos are wonderful you can have them made any way you like. And the fish tacos are out of this world.

    The Salsa Bar is one of Nashville's biggest intersections and creates some of the worst traffic incidents in Berry Hill!

    Don't mess with the brisket or barbacoa. Stick to chicken, steak, or fish. Corn salsa always.

    DO NOT LEAVE without trying the pineapple salsa! I love it and I'm not even a pineapple fan :-) Fruit tea is the greatest as well.

    If you want a "small burrito", try a taco. You get most of the burrito options.
