Finally took the new Baja Fresh/Canyons Burgers for a spin on Friday night. It’s the restaurant that opened up last month in the old Elmer’s location. On our menu: double-cheeseburger, fries, and a garlic lime marinated shrimp burrito. Initial report: burger was fair – not great, just fair. Fries were excellent. Burrito was good.
But note that this order was take-out, so I’m giving the benefit of the doubt and assuming that the burger will be tastier if it’s actually eaten at the restaurant. The service was excellent – very friendly staff, pleasant atmosphere, plenty of space. And the manager even discounted the order, since I was the last customer of the night on the “casual” side – a very nice touch.
Also ran into Gregg and some of his family there – heard later on that he was less than impressed with the food. My vote: while the food wasn’t great, it’s definitely worth a second chance.
