Pretty surprised that Baja Fresh/Canyon Burgers has shut down already – they just opened back in December. Might be a record “open to close” for a chain in Great Falls.
On the other hand, the closure isn’t completely surprising – as I noted after eating there, the burgers were definitely not worth going back for…and to be honest, I think the combo “burger joint/Mexican cafe” theme was a bit confusing.
And the unnecessary complication of “Do I order at the counter? Do I sit down for table service?” might have been a factor, too.
And of course there’s plenty of other Mexican restaurants to choose from in Great Falls.
There are LOTS of opinions about what restaurant should open up there – of course there’s the usual cries for Olive Garden and Red Lobster, but I’ve also heard some folks cheering for Five Guys, which sounds like a winner to me.
