I had a job interview nearby and had gotten to the area early, so I figured I had enough time to snag lunch. I used my Yelp app to see if there were any places nearby that had fish tacos because I had been craving some lately. Just about .2 miles from where I was was a 4.5 star restaurant called Baja Fish Tacos. Excited to see something so close by, I headed over to see what the reviews were about. The line was out the door but it moved quickly despite the lunch rush. Inside there were a lot of tables and people yet everything was clean and fast.

I opted for the two taco combo platter which came with rice and choice of beans (I chose black over Pinto). I decided to snag a carne asada taco and a fish taco. I mean, who wants to go to a fish taco place and not have the fish? My food came out very quickly despite how busy the place was. I initially thought that the black beans had too much liquid but it mixed very well with the rice which was superb. I loved the rice and could probably have it every day (though I think it's cooked in something fatty...). The fish taco was not what I expected though - I mean, I was craving a Baja-style which I had assumed was the battered type; I guess I was wrong. What I got was a bit dry and bland, a piece of grilled fish.. The carne asada was excellent however, and all the veggies were fresh. Unfortunately, though the food was pretty good overall, the price was steep for a fast food place for a plate of two small tacos, rice and beans (around $8).
