Little did they know that years later the area would be thriving with cruise ships, a world-class golf course, and a shopping mall where they would build, own and run one of the finest Asian fusion restaurants around.

Its menu is filled with offerings of the finest in Mexican food.
Baja’s history of providing quality food and atmosphere in the New Jersey area is evident over the past 15 years. Owners Mario Herrera, Felix Disla and Major Disla all strive to bring their talent and ingenuity into the creation of the newly designed Baja.
Owner Mario Herrera explains, “In researching our restaurant business we noticed that there weren’t any authentic Mexican restaurants in this area.” “We created these restaurants in order to provide the finest in Mexican food. Our food is prepared the minute it is ordered, I think for us that is the key to our success. We provide food that is freshly made.”
