Good food in a nice setting, more fun than elegant. Service tends to be slow but they give you an ample supply of chips and salsa. Good drink selection especially of Tequila. Plan to return

The first time we drove down the Carmel Valley Road looking for the Baja Cantina we were convinced we were on the wrong road, but we came to it eventually. On Thursday evenings (from May through the summer) they hold classic car meets. There is usually live music too and the place can get very busy. The food (as the name suggests) is Mexican (fajitas, burritos etc) but the whole place is a mecca to motorsport, with licence tags, paintings, old petrol pumps...and the cars.

I took my parents there from out of town.
Service: plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Lots of friendly staff to get you a table and get your drinks/foods.
Food: my parents had two different types of burritos. They really enjoyed the food and was good quality. Also the burritos were huge. I had the special which on Monday is Ribs and BBQ Chicken. It was amazing. The ribs were so good that I will definitely come back on a Monday night in The future.

If you are looking for a lively place to eart, drink and sit back on a lazy sunny afternoon. This is it!
Huge variety of delicious, generous plates of food, large drinks, outdoor (and indoor for rainy/cold days) fireplaces, comfy lounge area and chairs. Belly up to the rustic in the round bar and meet the locals. I love this very lively restaurant, located a few miles off the beaten tourist track on Carmel Valley Road. Even a good spot for kids with the huge outdoor deck.

We stopped after the lunch rush and we were seated immediately. The decor is fun and focused on Laguna Seca racing. They let us split the rosemary enchiladas. Chips and salsa were brought to the table immediately. Good service and moderate prices.
