Bajio Mexican Grill

Where: Bajio Mexican Grill, 992 S University Avenue, Provo (in the Riverwoods)

Who Went: Chelsey & Owen

Number of Visits: 1

What We Ordered: Smoked Beef Burrito & Bajio Sweet Pork Ensalada

What It Cost: ~$16

What We Thought:

There are a lot of Mexican places around here -- some great, and some not so great. Unfortunately, Bajio Mexican Grill falls under the latter category for us. We originally wanted to go there because we loved Cafe Rio, and it seemed like a similar type of "fresh Mexican" type of restaurant. They do have a couple more options, which sounded exciting, and it was wayyy less busy of course. We were able to order our food quickly, though it was prepared rather slowly (though I guess anything is slow compared to the roller coaster ride of Cafe Rio...), and was unimpressive when we sat down with our plates. The burrito was dry, and the salad was rather bland. I was expecting loads of juicy meat and fresh toppings, but what we got was sloppily assembled and even worse than Costa Vida.

What You Should Do: Go if you have to. The place is a lot less busy than Cafe Rio, so you'll probably get food faster, but you won't be as satisfied. The prices are about the same, but the quality is very different. Owen works pretty close to their location at the Riverwoods, which would make for a convenient lunch, but we've never been tempted to go back there again.
