Wow, those were some very unique and delicious rellenos they made. A poblano with a plaintain filling and an ancho (delicioso!) with a lovely center - whoo-hoo they were good! Not too hot (unless you are a compete wimp) and very tasty. Also the coffee was so good I could do without the milk. Super service too - counts for... More

We decided to eat at Baja Bud's after walking around Third Street Promenade. I had a quesadilla and my husband a burrito. We also had some chips and salsa. Very fresh and very yummy.

The first time I came here I tried the nachos with carnitas. Let me tell you, those were the best nachos I have ever tasted! Don't be picky and try the nachos with everything. They're delicious.

We come here almost weekly for the fresh custom made burritos and tamales ... The fresh chips are excellent as is their salsa.

Food is made fresh here. Very close to authentic Mexican food. There were 2 older guys preparing the food. So no teenagers scooping up food someone else made the day before. I liked watching the 2 guys grill the meat. We had a burrito and enchiladas. Served with plenty of rice and beans. You won't leave hungry here. Location is... More

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
