Great Basque Food

One of the premium restaurants in town for delicious Basque food! Old Town location adds to the ambiance. Great place to bring family and friends. You will never go away hungry, for sure. The Woolgrower family will make you part of the family!

Cabbage soup and spaghetti were outstanding. Short ribs could have been better. Nice experience for lunch if you want to sample Basque food.

Great place with tasty food and great service. One of the things that was really appreciated is that appetites of various sizes could easily be accommodated with plenty of delicious foods: the lighter eaters were very happy with the "basic set-up" and the heartier appetites could get a yummy protein or pasta to go with the setup. The food is... More

It had been a while since we visited Woolgrowers Basque Restaurant, and we were not disappointed. The energy in the bar before dinner was electric, and the restaurant was filled with energy, too. Bread, Basque soup, beans, salsa, followed by green salad, sliced tomatoes, spaghetti and the best French fries around! Our entrees were varied: lamb roast, veal cutlet, oxtail... More

The set up is what you start with its soup(wonderful cabbage /vege soup) ,beans, and salsa, The next dishes brought out might be your... More

Basque cuisine does not flood the U.S. In California, Bakersfield is a center for it (with another great Basque place in Los Banos). Wool Growers regular dining room features separate tables for each dining party, but the family-style dishes keep coming. In addition to the entre you individually order, your party gets soup, pickled tongue (fantastic!), salad, corn, French fries,... More
