I had an amazing waiter but it was a dog off the leash across from us that was constantly barking when people pass by.

The tacos were nothing to make make want to go back, the short rib did not have flavor and shrimp tacos seemed off. For four dollars a taco and the size I have had better In Cincinnati

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

This was the longest I've gone without Bakersfield since they opened, and it couldn't have been better. We were seated on the rooftop next door, our food was out in less than 20 minutes, and the drinks were back within 5.

The staff was masked up, the seating for spread properly, and for an hour I was able to forget how insane everything is and just have a nice dinner. Thank you to everybody at the restaurant that made that happen.

It was great to get back to Bakersfield after such a long hiatus because of the coronavirus. Since they merged with the Krueger operation, we opted for the rooftop deck on a beautiful Saturday evening and enjoyed the fresh air. We were surprised that there were several available tables up there, given that we weren't in a confined space. The food and drinks were excellent. So much food that we had leftovers the next day. We will be back.

Went for dinner and this was the first time I had been out since the pandemic, I was pleasantly surprised with how all guidelines were met. My only complaint that they could do a better job on was the pickup for takeout orders. There were a lot of people standing around and it can be confusing to others who have a reservation. Overall great atmosphere and food!

Had a wonderful experience at Bakersfield with my friends!
We made a reservation, got there to check in 5 minutes after our time and immediately sat down outside at a table on the street.
The tables were spaced out and had umbrellas for shade.
Servers were quick to come and serve us drinks, queso, and tacos—which were all delicious.
This is one of my favorite restaurants and it never fails!
