    I visited Bakersfield with a friend and we had a great time here! I tried the queso dip and short rib, fish and chicken pollo diablo tacos. All were very good! We also shared a picture of the pineapple margarita and it was more than enough for 2. Highly recommend.

    8PM on a Friday and was hopping. Service level received with it being that busy was outstanding. Both hosts were personable and engaged in banter while waiting for table to be cleared. Server (Eli) was great. Checked on us the correct amount, offered suggestions, refills on chips, etc. Food was really good. Frankly it was a significant step up from my last visit. Presentation of it was also good. Only complaint was that it was way too loud. Often could not hear what the person across the table was saying. Will look to come back though.

    Random find searching OpenTable for lunch spots after we left the DIA and this came up. Name doesn't make me think Mexican food and margaritas but that's the menu. All was delicious, short ribs queso, chicken taquitos, 2 margaritas and each mini taco you order separately. For a lunch portion, 2 tacos and sharing appetizers with margaritas was filling. Fish taco and carnitas were very good. Bill was 72 for 2 people plus tip. Parking was the only issue, it's on Woodward, there wasn't any street parking so we wound up paying 20 to the lot nearby. If we can find better parking and I would definitely go back.

    Love this place. We try to sit at the bar when possible as it’s fun to watch the bartenders mix their goodies! There is a strange odor of vinegar but it’s not a deterrent from bringing us back. Good selection of tequilas!

    It was easy to book a reservation. Reminder and table ready notifications were helpful. Parking was easy. The food was awesome from margaritas, to trio appetizer, to the tacos. Server Curren was awesome and made recommendations that he was spot on about. Food came timely. The entire experience was great.

    We asked the server about portion sizes and she was unable to make any suggestions or recommendations. We asked her about side dishes and she said ‘it depends on what you want….everyone is different. She is not an asset to your business. Everything else was great.

    Great food and service! I had the fish tacos and my husband had the the short rib tacos. Both were delicious but I think we may have liked the short rib tacos a little bit more. We had their guac, salsa and queso with our chips which were all very good too.

    We arrived early and the place was full. Still to our surprise, we were able to be seated early. Our server was fantastic and fun. The food was great. I am also very thankful that Bakersfield participates with the Inkind restaurant program. It is the only location in Michigan that does so far. We would not have known about Bakersfield if not for this location being listed in the InKind app. We are so happy to have "found" this place. We will be back!

    Bakersfield - DetroitResponded on December 19, 2022Thank you so much for the great review Rita! I did not realize we were the only restaurant in Michigan participating with the InKind app! I agree that it is a wonderful tool and makes payment a breeze. We can't wait to host you again! - Craig Davis (Assistant General Manager)

    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
