We ate at Baja Joe's late on a Friday night. Seating was quick and the chips and salsa came out as we sat down. The chips weren't that good and the salsa was bland. The waitress did bring out a second hot salsa that was...More

Kinda 'noisy' but my companion and I laughed about it sounding like a 'rafter' of turkeys when we entered. Lots of hustle-bustle...but we were seated/served and sated in no time at all...and the background conversations didn't interfere with us chatting and joining the 'rafter.' Service...More

Hands-down the best Mexican seafood restaurant in Mesa. Great portions. Decent prices. I do recommend the bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with crab. Will continue to go here for years to come

The restaurant specializes in Sinaloan-style seafood and Mexican dishes. Among its signature specialties are shrimp ceviche and cocktails, plus two dishes that can be shared, parrillada Mariscos, a combination of shrimp, lobster and fish prepared in a variety of ways, and parrillada Mexicana, a variety of grilled meats. The menu also features traditional enchiladas, tacos, burritos and chimichangas. Also serving great classics like wings, stuffed burgers, nachos, chicken strips and more. Great music, live 5 days a week, fills the place with a festive attitude and the separate bar is great for watching sporting events and the patio is a great place to decompress like a beach without the sand
