The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - Restaurant Review -

Bum­ble Bee’s Baja Grill on Cer­ril­los Road has un­der­gone a slight burger-chain face-lift and a ma­jor menu over­haul — and it now goes by the name Bum­ble Bee’s Burg­ers. The new in­car­na­tion may dis­ap­point devo­tees of Baja Grill’s for­mer self-de­scribed “fun, fresh, fla­vor­ful, friendly, fast-ca­sual” and rel­a­tively healthy Mex­i­can fare, which is still served at the down­town Bum­ble Bee’s. Cer­ti­fied An­gus beef burg­ers are ser­vice­able, if a bit soggy. Fries and onion rings are freezer-to-fryer (al­though house-made chips and a few other fried good­ies are tasty), and above-mar­gin fast-food prices don’t ac­cu­rately re­flect the qual­ity — and in some in­stances the per-serv­ing quan­tity — of the food. Rec­om­mended: ba­con-cheese hot dog, house-made potato chips, and the “Bee Sting,”

a side of fried jalapeño and onion spears.
