Bajio Mexican Grill opens at Lakewood Crossing

Mexican food buffet style at Bajio Mexican Grill is not your standard Mexican fare. It’s new and different. The ensalata Bajio, especially, offers a mountain of fresh greens with well seasoned lime marinated chicken or your choice of any meat from the menu, very unlike your standard taco salad. You name it, a burrito, an enchilada, or a salad, with your choice of flavorful stewed chicken, beef or pork, and your choice of red sauce or green sauce, and your choice of side dishes. “We have 46 Bajios across 10 states, said the director of operations, Bonnie Elhalta, who came to town for the opening shindig to help managers Jolene and Steve Bartek serve their new customers. “The only other Bajio in the Northwest is in Klackamas, Oregon,” Elhata said. The interior of the eatery located is decorated with beautiful artifacts from Mexico, with large metal lanterns, mosaic walls and counters and original paintings. They opened their doors to the public Feb. 20 at 2707 171st Place N.E, at the Lakewood Crossing Shopping Center.
