Diverse, delicious assortment of Mexican cuisine in a relaxed setting. Good table service. Many choices. Sunday morning family brunch. Well worth it and not terribly expensive. Parking can be difficult so be prepared.

Had a wonderful dinner at Baja Betty's. Food was excellent and the atmosphere is a blast! Had a F'Ugly Betty and although expensive, so worth it! Wish I hadn't been just visiting. I would eat here at all the time!
