Hi Tiffany! I am so glad you enjoyed your experience with us. I love splitting the pitcher with a friend! It's definitely the perfect amount of margarita if you plan on getting more than one drink each. Come back and see us soon! - Suzannah, Administrative Manager

Everything at Bakersfield is great. However, during this season you may want to sit inside due to the foliage that attracts the bees.

We were so happy Bakersfield reopened. It’s one of our favorite places. Today due to the doors being open there were several bees flying around the place. I also made a reservation and had to sit at bar because no indoor tables were available. We still enjoyed our dining experience just wish there weren’t so many bees.

We were running a little late and called the restaurant to let them know. They were accommodating. The employees were everything! We had seat preference (indoor/outdoor), everyone was helpful, and everything was constantly being cleaned. They offered a qr-code for the menu. I watched an employee clean the parking payment machine every 20-30 minutes (guesstimate). We had the queso, several types of tacos, pineapple margarita pitcher, and shots.... everything was perfect.
