Service was impeccable. The appetizers were delicious as was my margarita. Thought the tortillas overpowered the flavor of the tacos though.

We were seated right away, the food came quick but we never felt rushed. Good service, wish the tables were a little further away from other tables. The queso was a little different than expected. Overall, nice time.

This place is really good. The food is tasty and the service was good. If you go at night or on weekends expect it to be crowded. Also the tables for 2 are small, and the restaurant in general is small, so expect to sit close to people at other tables. I definitely recommend it though!

We went here for our anniversary/New Year's Eve dinner. We were seated at a bourbon barrel and tall stools despite there being more comfortable tables available - we asked to switch and were accommodated no problem. The food was excellent. The services was excellent as well. We really enjoyed our meal and would return!

Perfect day date
Margarita are too good and if you don’t load up on chips and trio dippers like I did I would suggest 3 tacos if not only 2 lol we need one of these in Dayton Ohio I drove 45 minutes and it was worth it trust

Our first visit to Bakersfield, and overall a very positive one. The food was excellent starting with the chips and guacamole through the tacos and sides of black beans and roasted cauliflower to the drinks - Mexican beer (on tap) and margaritas. The price for two of us, food drinks and all was under $70.00 - not bad in my estimation. The only fault I have is the waiter forgot to put the order in for the side dishes and that kind of slowed things down. Everything else was promptly delivered. The crowd drinking and dining was quite large for mid-week. This must be a popular place. We would definitely try Bakersfield again when in the area.

The food was incredible. The only issue we had was they forgot to bring our shareable side dishes we ordered. By the time we realized and saw our waitress again we were nearly finished eating so we didn’t bother with them. We truly look forward to dining there again.

A great place to go before seeing some theatre in the area. The food is reasonably priced and delicious; same with the drinks. I've always had good service there but it was exceptional this time around. I was with four other people and we all had a great time.

This was my first time to Bakersfield. It was good that I made my reservation in advance, this place was full. It was crowded and loud, but the food and drinks were amazing! Their guac was “The best” i have ever tasted. Loved their fish taco and huitlacoche. Their Margarita was “awesome”.
The only thing that I dont like here is this place is too small and congested with so many people. But still i would love to go again for their food and drinks. 😋😋

The food overall very good. Very fresh and loved this.

I do believe the fixings had too many competitors in the mix, meaning, I would have enjoyed more pure taste and less spices...the flavor was lost in all the spice. Less spice is more. If you’re interested in getting more trio plates ordered, put a very tiny amount of both on the sides of the 🌮 tacos, not just in trio, that way it can be ordered...slightly less salt with the chips too, just drank more water. Overall, very good.

I really enjoyed my tacos. The guacamole was disappointing because it was VERY salty. I wish we would have gotten better service, our waiter come one to check on us, did not bring out our appetizer or food and took forever to bring out the check. Also I feel like they should ask if we need our menu explained because for me and my boyfriend we already knew what everything was.
