It’s my Birthday Month! And I’m taking advantage of all the birthday deals available to me by attempting to get one birthday deal every day. Please read more about my mission in my “About” page. On we go!!
Business: Baja Fresh
Offer: Free classic burrito with purchase of a large drink
Via: Email message and printable coupon from Club Baja
Baja Fresh! Yes, with the exclamation point! I am a BIG fan of Baja Fresh, and am very happy that they participate in a birthday promotion through their Club Baja. The birthday offer is good for a free classic burrito with a choice of either chicken, veggie or pork carnitas. The classic burrito comes in three styles: (1) Baja, with cheese, guacamole and pico de gallo; (2) Mexicano, with rice, beans, onions, cilantro and salsa; and (3) Ultimo, with grilled veggies, salsa, cheese, rice and sour cream. These are pretty hefty burritos, big enough to share or to eat half now and the other half for a meal at a later time, so plan accordingly.
I went with the Ultimo burrito with pork carnitas and presented the printed coupon of the birthday voucher. It requires a purchase of a large drink, which costs $2.19. However, I have a Baja Fresh plastic tumbler where refills are just $.99 and the cashier accepted this for my large drink. The drinks available are Coke products at a self-yourself drink fountain.
While waiting for my order, I was provided with a small snack size paper bowl of fresh tortilla chips to munch on. The chips are good enough on their own, but man I wish I had something to dip them in or eat them with…..wait a second!…the salsa bar! My favorite feature of Baja Fresh is their salsa bar, featuring 4 kinds of salsa (including a seasonal salsa, which is currently pineapple), chopped cilantro, lime wedges and pico de gallo. All of it is fresh and really good, so scoop them up and add it to your dining-in meal or pack them away in little to-go containers for those taking food home.
I ended up taking my burrito home to share with my wife, which was plenty enough with the chips and condiments from the salsa bar. Baja Fresh is reasonably priced with good portions and the food is delicious, not to mention that outstanding salsa bar. With twelve locations scattered around the Portland – Vancouver area, it is convenient enough to enjoy your birthday offer without struggling to get to a location. Fair warning however, the free burrito is only good for the first seven days before your birthday. Try to take it the day after your birthday and it will be too late! The free birthday burrito is only available through their Club Baja program. They will give you a free taco just for signing up, plus they will provide frequent discount coupons to encourage repeat visits. Overall, this is birthday offer is a definite treat, go enjoy that burrito at Baja Fresh and don’t forget the salsa bar!
