baja-fresh-cool-springs-franklin-tn.jpg We seem to frequent these Mexican burrito restaurants. I’m not sure what that says about us, but it’s interesting to be able to compare them around town!

No matter how many others we try out, my husband goes back to the Baja Fresh Mexican Grill every time. It’s his absolute favorite.

Here’s why…

Baja Fresh has the slogan that they don’t use microwaves, canned foods, or frozen foods.

All of their foods are prepared to order using fresh ingredients.

That commitment really shows in the taste of their menu items.

This is one of the main reasons my husband loves Baja Fresh. He loves his condiments, and there’s nothing like having an array of fresh salsas from which to choose.

My husband claims that Baja Fresh has the best Fish Burrito and Fish Tacos around. I, personally, don’t like fish so I can’t say firsthand. But his actions speak as loud as his words considering he’s been going there 3 to 4 times a month and says he needs to go more often!




Right now, they are offering a Taco Trio for a limited time with a grilled mahi mahi taco. My husband says it is the best thing on the menu. I think I will stick with the Chicken Burrito Mexicano with salsa verde — my all-time favorite.

Most of the time, we just get an order of beans and rice for our daughter and she loves it. They also have crayons and a placemat to color — which is great for entertaining the kiddos while the food is being prepared.

Baja Fresh is a nice, casual eatery with indoor and outdoor seating. It’s a great place to take kids.

Maybe if we keep trying the other burrito restaurants in the area, he’ll find one he likes better. But for now, we’ll be going to Baja Fresh so my hubby can get his Fish Burrito and Fish Taco fix.
