BIZNOTE: Baja Taco closed – will it reopen?

Thanks to the reader who tipped us that West Seattle’s remaining Baja Taco, on the east side of Jefferson Square, is closed, with a document titled “Default Notice” taped to the door. We went over for a look last night; the top page of the notice is a demand for rent payment. We checked court files and have not yet found anything related to rent, though the state filed an $11,000 action in late January claiming unpaid taxes. We went back this afteroon to check – still closed, with the notice still taped to the door. The restaurant briefly closed in November 2018; then reopened under new ownership. The Westwood Village BT closed permanently last August and the space is part of the soon-to-open Westwood Village MOD Pizza.

    Doesn’t look good. All of the tables and appliances have been cleared out. It’s too bad. The new owner was very nice and her employee, Olga, had worked there for 12 years. She knew my kids orders by heart. I hope she lands on her feet.

      I saw the same thing yesterday. Huge stack of notices taped to the door and the inside was pretty cleared out of tables and the food prep equipment. I don’t see how it is reopening with all of those changes.

    This is a shame.  I was a regular customer at the WV branch for many years and miss being able to get fast Mexican (especially fish tacos) that aren’t from a truck.  Nothing against trucks, but like being able to sit.

Sorry, comment time is over.
