My experience was great as always! I enjoyed sitting outside on a warm night! I was disappointed that they were out of short rib as the short rib taco is one of my very favorites, but other than that, our meal was fantastic!

Great server! Anjeo Margarita was very good. Taco choices were diverse. Red salsa was the best I've ever had restaurant, street food, or bottled! Guac was freshly made. It was noisy, a bit difficult to have a conversation. Definitely will return.

Our visit to Bakersfield was a very good experience. The food was great and the ambiance was nice and not overly loud or crowded for a Wednesday night. My main critique is that the food came out a little too fast. We had barely taken two sips of our drinks before we had food. I don't know how easy that is to control but that was my only complaint.

The reviews seemed promising so we made a reservation. The service was horrible, slow, no water refills, the waitress was overwhelmed didn’t not seem to want to work and didn’t know what the menu or specials were when asked. The food was cold, tortillas undercooked and way over priced. The $220+ spent there last night was not worth it at all. The ONLY good thing about this place was the watermelon margarita.

Given dirty side plates when we were seated
Waited significant time to be greeted and place drink orders
Were never given cutlery/silverware - had to request it after our food came out
Just overall felt like a poor experience.

We made a reservation so we didn’t have a wait. The staff was very friendly and our server was such a pleasure. The drinks were tasty and the food was delicious. The queso was some of the best I’ve ever had. We also ordered the cauliflower queso - we’ll be ordering that again.

Oh it was fun! Great atmosphere, loud downstairs - if you’re looking for a low key bar type get together it’s fun. Yummy dips, delicious margs. Tacos were a little small for $4.

Waitress was great— loved where were sat. Fun slate tables.

Although Open Table confirmed my reservation, I arrived at Bakersfield to a confused hostess that said the reservation didn’t go through which “often happens” with Open Table. This was frustrating since they didn’t have a table readily available.
