Bakersfield never disappoints. I loved the seasonal Cranberry Ginger Margarita!
Best place for unique simple tacos with great taste! Been to a lot of places that overdo it and hardly resemble tacos anymore but this nails being creative without sacrificing amazing flavor. Drinks are great as well!
The manager and server were not only professional, but funny too. Winning. Drinks were solid.
Outside patio a little cold but if you come prepared it’s great!
The outdoor patio was pretty good.
Thank you! We appreciate the support during this time for restaurants. Hopefully we will have indoor seating available soon, until then come back and see us under our heated tent! -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
Everything was fantastic! Highly recommend this restaurant for outdoor dining and hopefully indoor soon. You must get the queso app and be careful with the Diablo taco, it’s hot AF!
Thanks so much for the love! We are crossing our fingers we will be able to have people back inside soon, we appreciate the support until then. -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
Service is great! Amanda and Sean are always amazing and friendly.
Amazing food and atmosphere
It was outdoors
I am so sorry we disappointed you! Due to the current pandemic and restrictions in Michigan, restaurants are only allowed to be open for outdoor dining/carry out. The safety of our team and our guests is our #1 priority, so we make sure we are following the current state guidelines. I know we are bending over backwards to make our tent as warm and hospitable as possible, and the only tables available to reserve online are listed as outdoor seating. Thank you! Amanda McMahan, General Manager
Great food and great service. Their sangria is outstanding. Atmosphere is friendly and comfortable. Nothing is "forced" about this place it all sort of flows. Gratefully during this time of the virus, Bakersfield found a way to remain a place we can still go to celebrate and enjoy life safely. I have been here three times in the last two months and will keep coming back.
Thanks so much for the love, Melissa! We really appreciate your loyalty and recognition of our efforts during this difficult time. I love that you feel comfortable here and can enjoy our amazing tacos and margs :) See you again soon! -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
Our server was really great!! Super friendly!! Great service!
The servers do not wear gloves and I feel they should especially since we are in a pandemic.
Also, I bought a gift card online that no one knew how to process so my husband was asked to pay and they told us we could use the gift card after 12/26. A manager was called and she told me that they had not been trained on the online gift card. It was embarrassing.
delicious and fresh
Thanks so much! -Amanda McMahan, General Manager
Great food and drinks. Our waiter was very attentive. Will definitely come back.
Thanks so much for the positive feedback! Come back and see us soon! Cheers. - Suzannah
Not bad tacos are ok not bad
Great food and I was happy that the heated patio was open during the partial shut down- would definitely go back! Server was very attentive and friendly :)
Thanks for the feedback, Paige! We are super excited about our covered and heated patio for the cold winter upon us. Come see us again soon. Cheers! - Suzannah
It was all outdoor seating, cuz COVID, but we had to wait an hr past our reservation time. At that point they “remembered” they had a drink ledge we could post up at until we were sat and then they treated us a a free first round. Drinks were delicious, all was forgiven! It was November so of course it was FREEZING! But luckily we had a towel in the car so that was a lifesaver used as a blanket. Food was good. Honestly we came here bc we were wondering if it inspired [the Bakersfield Sonoran hotdog at] imperial in Ferndale- maybe it was but I don’t think the food beats out what I can get in Ferndale! Fun to try something new though!
We had to wait 20 minutes even with a reservation but when we sat down the service and food was incredible.
Thanks for the 5-star review! I am happy we were still able to give you good service and food, despite a little bit of a wait. Come back and see us soon! - Suzannah
Loved it! Delicious food and a great atmosphere with excellent service. Our server was very sweet and made an active effort to social distance whenever possible.
Hi Alice! Thanks for the wonderful feedback! We always love to hear that guests had a great experience with both food and service. Be sure to come see us again soon! - Suzannah
Food and service was excellent. Definitely a place I’ll frequently visit.
Thanks for the love, Felix! We look forward to welcoming you again soon. - Suzannah
I requested to be inside and I was sat outside with high winds
Hi Devona-I apologize if there was any confusion for our seating restrictions. Per the CDC and the Michigan Health Department, properly follow protocol and keep safety and sanitation the #1 priority for our guests and team members. In order for us to be able to continue to operate, we must follow these guidelines in hopes that eventually,we will be able to accommodate for indoor dining once again!We appreciate the 5-stars, and again,Come join us again soon on our tent-covered .Cheers! -Suzannah
We went for Taco Tuesday. Had a reservation, but waited 20 minutes. After getting to our table, we sat down and waited another 30 minutes for our waitress to bring us waters. While waiting, the music was so incredibly loud we are unable to really hear the people at our table. 30 minutes later I asked the status of our chips and salsa - waitress forgot. Came back 15 minutes later and threw them on the table and walked away. We asked another waitress if she could retrieve our waitress so that we could finally place our order. That took another 40 minutes to receive our tacos (that were the wrong order) not to mention, cold + extremely soggy. The final straw was that we asked to speak to the manager + our waitress said that she was "too busy right now because they were short staffed." Now, I get it, we are in the middle of a global pandemic + grace is of course extended however, this was the worst service and experience we've ever had. Very disappointed and will look elsewhere for Taco Tuesday and never recommend.
Thank you for providing your feedback and letting us know about this issue, Lindsay. We set a high standard for ourselves and are truly sorry to hear that standard was not met in your interaction with us. Please get in touch with us directly at detroit.bakersfield@tdomecom and we'd be happy to help you out. Cheers, Bakersfield DET
