Great experience!! Service was excellent and the food and drinks were great and well-priced. We sat on the enclosed rooftop and it was very cutely decorated for the holiday season with lights hanging from the ceiling.

I got a short rib taco and pollo diablo taco. Both great and would get again - I love spicy food, and the pollo diablo did not disappoint in that respect. Definitely not for the faint-hearted.

We went for lunch. The queso is amazing... The tacos are flavorful but seemed small for the price. I feel like I could have gotten more filling food from another taco spot for less.

We had a great time at Bakersfield. We ordered cocktails, short rib queso, & pretty much every taco (they are small tortillas). Everything came out in a timely manner & was delicious. Our favorite taco was the short rib. The team adhered to COVID restrictions too

Went here for a friend's birthday. We were sat at an upstairs patio. It was wonderful up there. It had a great view of the beautiful buildings in the surrounding area. Our waiter was very nice and checked up on us an appropriate amount of times. I had 3 tacos and it was enough to fill me up. My favorite was definitely the pulled pork. The flavors were amazing and complimented each other beautifully. The lemonade was also delicious. You could tell it was fresh squeezed and had that amazing lemony tartness. The prices were a little high at around $4 a taco, but I will still probably come back.

The service was excellent our server was Sydney and she was very polite and made sure her glasses were never empty. The only thing that I wasn’t aware of is how the food is presented, I was disenchanted that everybody had to find their tacos. And if you’re not sure someone is a good hand wash or you don’t want them all touching this one plate LOL.

Also the business next-door had a man DJing on the sidewalk which made it impossible to have a conversation without screaming at each other so that too was disenchanting but nothing they could do about it I’m sure. Something I feel needs to be addressed with the City Of Cincinnati as far as that being noise pollution.

Now that Bakersfield has expanded into the Kruegers Tavern space the tables and seating options are great with the new restaurant requirements.

The short rib and chorizo queso appetizers were amazing and the spicy margaritas were perfect for the summer night. Everyone in the party got a mix of tacos and all of them were delicious!
