    I have frequented Bakersfield a number of times and was really looking forward to going last night. The noise level was absolutely unbearable (I think because of the concrete floors), and the women's bathroom looked like a bar fight had gone on in there. The toilet seat in the handicapped stall was ripped off and laying against the wall. The stall that I finally used, was disgusting. It's clear that no one is monitoring it's cleanliness. I ordered the fish tacos and they were very dry. I was very disappointed in my meal and the restaurant. It was truly unfortunate, because I really like Bakersfield.

    Quality has gone downhill. Chips tasted stale, not house made as in the past. Guacamole was flavorless. Salad greens not fresh as in past. Server put our bill in the middle of our food, vs on the table.

    We always enjoy Bakersfield. This time the elote was not hot, as it normally has been. It was still severed in a cast iron pan, but both the elote and pan were cold as a refrigerator which took away from the taste. It made us sad, but we still ate it all 😂. Love the open windows, but it does increase the noise considerably.

    Bakersfield was ok. It’s good for a good night out. We just wished that the tacos had a lot more flavor. We like the options we wanted to really be able to enjoy and taste it. The brisket queso was amazing though. Very flavorful! If we can get the rest of the food up to that level, we would definitely be back to this place.

    Always good food and great location. Service could be a 5 but the place tends to be hectic which often is a distraction for a server. You may have to remind them to bring things like plastic ware, water, etc. Again due to the noise and activity you can understand why some things may slip through the cracks.

    Service and food great! Short rib queso is a must have along with shrimp tacos. A touch more tequila in the drinks would take this to 5 stars, drinks are pricey for the amount of liquor you get.

    First everyone knows any parking near downtown is difficult. First time at Bakersfield my food & my girlfriends food was tasty the only thing tacos were limited I like corn shells. Are drinks were good & the young lady who serve us was excellent I wish I would had gotten her name. Prices were good also I will go again. A little gem in the coner.

    The service was lackluster from the previous times that my wife and I have dined. The server seemed as if we were not a priority and the manager took care of our appetizer however, for the type of service we received more should have been done. I will be back but I know who the server is and I know who I don’t want to service me next time.

    Very yummy! Definitely recommend getting the guacamole. Taco Tuesday deals as well, mainly for drinks but also $1 off each taco. The only feedback I would have was too our waiter. It felt like he was rushing us by checking in too frequently and bringing our bill (without asking if we needed anything else, which we did) when we were still eating and had been there less than an hour. It just felt like they were trying to get us out as soon as possible.

    Overall the food and drinks were delicious. I had the pineapple margarita and the Paloma. I would definitely order the pineapple margarita again. my only criticism was the guacamole had too much lime juice. It’s very noisy so he prepared for that
