                                            This was a great restaurant close to Broadway. Helpful staff, a really good atmosphere and excellent food - margaritas were also superb. The tacos and salads were particularly good and great value for money. I'd recommend without hesitation.

                                            The food is incredible. Try the short rib tacos and the mahi-mahi fish tacos. The service was outstanding and the scene, casual elegance.

                                            Waitress was super nice. It was beyond loud in there couldn’t even hear eachother. Pineapple marg was not good. Fish and shrimp taco was good along with the corn salad.

                                            Thanks for the review and for stopping by. It can be very loud in the restaurant at times. Sorry to hear the pineapple marg wasn't enjoyable for you, it's typically one of the crowd favorites. Can we invite you back for another shot at showing you a better time? We'd love to redeem ourselves and win you back! My email is below, looking forward to hearing from you! Jeff S - GM jeff.snyder@tdome.co m

                                            We had dinner here on a Friday night! It was super energetic and the food was great! They were super busy being a Friday, and we sat at the bar so only complaint is we had to flag down a bartender when we needed something. Other than that would recommend!

                                            A great vibe crowded before a hockey game. Communal tables so if you want to be alone make sure to request your own table. Delicious guac and tasty tacos. I had 2 and that was plenty my boyfriend had 4. I would recommend and return.

                                            Food was all over cooked and very bland. The waitress took our order and didn’t come back until we were ready for the check. I do not recommend this place at all.

                                            It was our 1st time at Bakersfield. Tacos were perfect size. Fun to try a few different ones and share. The margaritas were also a big hit! Would definitely recommend this restaurant as a must when in Nashville!

                                            Had to change the reservation number and time multiple times and they were always accommodating. Taco Tuesday was amazing!

                                            We got pitcher of margaritas which was definitely enough for 2 people. I got the vegetarian tacos which were good and the guacamole was also good!!

                                            The food was fine but the competition for tacos in Nashville is growing, our drinks were okay, the sangria is very bitter. Our server was super sweet.

                                            Very cute inside. Picnic table seating. Limited menu but very tasty. Margarita was good and they have a shot of the day that we tried.

                                            Delicious street tacos with a twist.. but if you have a picky eater, they can also make chicken and cheese tacos. Great service, we sat in a back corner so it wasn’t super loud, but they had the doors opened up and all of Nashville was outside enjoying the weather. Fun place

                                            The shrimp tacos and queso were delish, as well as the chicken taquitos. Pomegranate margaritas were not as tasty as we had hopes. Great and personable server!

                                            Awesome place. Very much enjoyed lunch here with my wife. Wife got the taquitos which were okay and I enjoyed three different tacos which were all really good!! The guacamole for the appetizer is also a must! Will definitely be back

                                            This place was amazing. Great margaritas and tacos. I recommend the short rib or shrimp tacos. The queso is also out of this world. We sat at the bar and had great service.

                                            Margaritas were the best we have tasted and the fresh salsa verde and guacamole were on point. Great experience and best meal we had while visiting Nashville

                                            It was really good. The bartender took no mercy on us. I didn't need much to drink. I will say this, I am a bourbon drinker and the drinks were very different which made me want to try them and I probably wouldn't get them again, but I do like the way the bartender makes the drinks.

                                            The drinks were high price & the mixer lime drowned the flavor of Tequila (Casamigos)$17 I had to order another shot $14 that’s $31 for one drink! Not worth cost of top shelf Tequila. We had Street Tacos, shrimp recommended by Kayla, was very good the Fish taco & Chicken Taco quite bland. Enjoyed the Loaded Queso

                                            Hi Carol, thanks for the review. Top Shelf tequila can certainly get expensive. Glad that you enjoyed the shrimp taco and loaded queso during your visit, and we appreciate the feedback about the fish and chicken - we'll take that under advisement. Regards, Jeff S - GM

                                            Very cool little taco joint. Nice Liquor selection, Margs we’re quite good and the pitcher price was very reasonable. Tacos are small but not expensive so you can try 2/3 very affordably. Would eat here again

                                            The food was pretty good but nothing that blew us away. The server made the experience much better. He was on point, friendly and attentive to our needs. The drinks were pretty good too.
