Despite being so far north of the Mexican border, the cooks at family-friendly Baja Grill nonetheless craft dishes full of authentic Mexican flavour. They whip up fresh batches of salsa and chips daily, stuff chimichangas with chicken and cheese, and assemble gorditas—flour tortillas and cheese wrapped around corn tortillas and filled with beef. More homegrown options such as fresh burgers like the Baja Burger with guacamole, cheddar, Bakersfield brown chili, and jalapenos are also available. Beverages such as frozen margaritas and sangria complement feasts, which unfold overlooking the waterway of Dows Lake.
