More big news for the Heights food scene! The once popular Benton food truck, Baja Grill, will be a brick-and-mortar restaurant beginning today!

That's right. Now, you won't have to drive to Benton to enjoy the amazing Mexi-Cali cuisine, because owners Craig and Melissa Roe are bringing it to your backyard!

While customers can expect new menu items and weekly specials like steaks, salads and soups in the future, to start things off, Baja Grill is sticking to the basics, its core menu(PDF) from the food truck. And there is nothing wrong with that!

The "basics" include tasty starters like queso blanco, guacamole and salsa. Then, you've got a plethora of taco, burrito and quesadilla options for main courses. 

And when we say plethora, we mean it. Baja pork, chicken and beef, cuban, veggie and pig sooie are all options for burritos, tacos and quesadillas.

We don't know if you're ready for more good news this quick, but Baja Grill will also have a full bar, but you'll have to wait until July 1. Honestly, we think the food should be able to hold you over.

When it does open, Melissa Roe says it will be a full-service bar with an emphasis on signature margaritas, Sangria and Mojito.

The restaurant's hours will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.

Soirée contributor Kevin Shalin got a sneak peek and talks about his experience here. We'll be right over.
