    Had a nice experience here before a Pistons game. Taco Tuesday so $3 tacos which is a pretty solid deal in general, let alone on Woodward walking distance from the arena. Tacos are smaller but waitress was up front about that. Cool atmosphere and nicely decorated. Definitely loud inside. Only odd thing was they served the tacos on one big plate and you had to grab yours off of it. After going through the Pandemic, was kinda surprised by this, but I was not upset with this personally. I see how some people would not like it though. Overall a cool spot and would go back

    Great food and great drinks! Perfect restaurant for having drinks and catching up with friends. The servers were helpful and were able to make recommendations for us that we loved! There’s also multiple large tvs that play the game if that’s something that interests you.

    The food was great, drinks were delicious. Our server wasn't very attentive - we had to ask for several things that should have just been given (silverware, water refills), and once we had our food we were pretty much ignored unless we waived our server over.

    We were there on a Monday. We were going to the Michael Buble concert and celebrating my birthday. First thing I noticed is they were playing Michael Buble music and it was the perfect pregame for the concert. My husband and I have small children so we don’t get out much. The service was great! Our waitress knocked off our chips and salsa on the bill for my birthday which I thought was so sweet. The food was phenomenal! The tacos are very small but they are filled and packed with flavor! Will definitely be back!

    Great food. Great ambiance. All the staff that we had interactions with (hostess, the gal who seated us, our waiter) seemed like they didnt want to be there. No smile. not friendly. Made us feel like we were such a bother to them. I would come back, but just for the food. We will bring our own kind people.

    Food and drinks were good. Would have been a nice experience except for the loud country music. I get they wanted to feature artists from Bakersfield but it was way too much of it and way too loud. Maybe some more diverse music selections would be better. Otherwise decent ambiance.

    Very convenient before a show at the arena. Great food, drinks, and sevice, though appetizers are huge and tacos very small. Don't miss the sides. Nice drink selection too.

    Taco Tuesday ! This was a nice surprise. Food and drink was excellent. Bakersfield margaritas were refreshing but carried a good tequila flavor. The shrimp taco was the best I eaten in some time. It is loud.

    It’s been about a year now since I discovered Bakersfield and I’ve been in love since especially with my severe dairy allergy they accommodate so much to where I can have so many delicious items off the menu. My top fave are the trio appetizer you definitely have to try that! The pollo taco and short rib and chicken taquitos are mouth watering!! The shrimp and fish taco are a must! The clase azul drinks are A1!! Always will be my favorite taco spot ..as busy as they always are you will always find a spot the wait is worth it!!
