    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!!

    Great place to eat. Service was fast and the food was fantastic. I have Celiac and I called ahead to see if the could accommodate food allergies. They emailed me the GF menu. Parking was a rip at a side lot but we’ll be back.

    It was our first time. We didn't get to see the interior of the restaurant as we were sat outside in the tent area. It was a nice day out, but it was a tad-bit hot. We were the only ones out there the entire time, so that felt weird (LOL). The food came out very fast. So if you don't want your meal to come within minutes of your appetizer, definitely wait on placing the order. The short-rib queso was great an their chips are warm and delicious. The chicken taquitos, al pastor taco and shrimp taco were also a hit. If you have a child, they are limited to tacos or quesadillas, so plan accordingly. We will be back.

    Loud. Good music. Very good food. Efficient service. Cool vibe. Interesting diners. Very fair prices. Don't be afraid to order the roasted corn appetizer! Paige, our server was all business but excellent. I gave her 25%. Our first visit...definitely NOT our last!

    Great experience overall. Greeted and seated promptly. Able to sit outside which was important given rising Covid rates in our area. Server was terrific. Noise level made it a little bit difficult to converse, but not impossible.

    Only thing that I would have liked more is a larger table. The tables are very small and very close to each other. This makes it loud and hard to talk with your guests.
