Baja Fresh

Baja Fresh is a restaurant chain of Fresh Mex restaurants founded in Newbury Park, California, United States in 1990 by Jim and Linda Magglos. Categorized as a "fast-casual" restaurant, the quality and preparation time of its food is between that of a fast-food restaurant and a more formal restaurant. It is headquartered in Thousand Oaks, California.

A feature of Baja Fresh restaurants is a self-serve salsa bar. Similar competitors include Baja Bud's, Mesa Fresh Mexican Grill, Sharky's Mexican Grill, Panchero's Mexican Grill, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Baja Happy's, Moe's Southwest Grill, Qdoba, Rubio's Fresh Mexican Grill, Poquito Mas and Bumble Bee's Baja Grill.
