This place was so good. The homemade queso was best I have ever had! There was a great selection of street taco flavors and every single one was delicious. The margaritas were also amazing 😊

Food was on point as I have come to expect. Always outstanding! Hostess experience was pleasant and quick. Star, our server, and Spencer, a trainee, were both a joy to speak with and professional in their service. Wouldn't hesitate to ask for either of them on future visits to the Charlotte location. Keep up the great work Bakersfield and I will see you soon!

Visited Bakersfield many times in many locations from Columbus to Charlotte and Nashville to Indy. For this visit, I’ll just chalk it up to an off night for staff—slow service, forgotten ordered items. (They did make good on refunding one item.) Still, I’ll be back to one of my favorite place since 2013.

Taco Tuesday experience is what I had. The tacos are a dollar cheaper and they’re decent, I had 5 along with chips guacamole salsa and queso and I was sufficiently satisfied. I was starving so I swallowed the tacos but I recommend the chicken and steak tacos, was not a fancy of the fried fish (Mahi) taco.

Loved the atmosphere! My friend and I sat in a booth. I loved that the front doors were all open so you could look out at the street. I would definitely recommend. Parking can be hard but totally worth it! Large selection of whisky/tequila!

We wanted to make an exception to our “avoid indoor dining” behavior for our daughter’s 21st birthday (she chose the restaurant). After making the reservation, I called to confirm the COVID practices of the restaurant (knowing it was too cold and rainy for their open window). The woman offered to find a table that would help us to feel secure and she did a great job. When we arrived, she cheerfully remembered, so we did not feel we were putting out the restaurant. The servers made our daughter feel special. And the tacos were delicious—Very interesting combinations with a hand-crafted feel. Excellent choice.
