    All the tacos we tried were delicious. The queso with short ribs was particularly good, as was the pineapple margarita with Tajin on the rim. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. None of us had ever eaten at Bakersfield, so it was helpful to have her guidance in ordering. We each had two street tacos which were much bigger than what is served in other restaurants. Rave reviews for the short rib taco - the cinnamon was surprising and delicious, and the fish taco. Would definitely return.

    Music in the restaurant was a little loud. But other than that, everything was AMAZING!! Food is super fresh, plus CRAZY FAST service. My friends and I received our food (meals and appetizer) within 10 minutes of ordering, maybe even faster. Can’t wait to be back in Nashville so I can revisit this amazing go to spot!

    Just say no to the Fabuloso. It smells horrible. We had heard good things and were excited to try Bakersfield. It's was mid level. Drinks were too sweet and tacos were mediocre. We've had better experiences at Bar Taco & Velvet Taco. I think they're catering to the Broadway tourists to pay the rent. There's definitely better options in Nash.

    An Expensive Mistake! How did this place ever get a high rating??? The people were lovely and the service was very good, but sadly to say nothing else was. All the hype about the tacos was misleading and false--very little and bland taste and all of the salsas were terrible. They didn't even know how to make queso of all things--used cheddar cheese and it was like a bowl of cheese mud--just awful. And to add insult to injury they charged out the universe--prices way above norm even for this part of town. If you want good tacos go to places like Bartaco, Chuy's and Mac Tacos--even Taco Bell is better than this place.

    Nice spot that is worth the extra minutes walk off Broadway. Clean and fun spot. I will say I was surprised how good the good, Mexican food in Nashville that could give many spots out West a run for the money. Service was friendly and on spot. Next time in Nashville I will drop by. Highly recommend.

    The quality of the food and the margaritas was incredible. The food was fresh and not too fussy. The menu was small, but more than adequate and the service was top-notch. I will definitely visit again while I’m Nashville. One more thing, it’s close enough to Broadway to be convenient without all the hoopla that makes Broadway what it is.

    We wanted an easy dinner close to the arena before a Preds game. We had drinks there several months ago, but had not eaten there before. The food was excellent. We had the trio appetizer with guacamole and two different salsas, and all were outstanding. I had the fish taco and shrimp taco And my husband had the steak taco and chicken taco. We also had a side of black beans. We would definitely go back again.  the portions were good sized and the cocktails were excellent.
