I've been enjoying Basque restaurants whenever I'm within range since first discovering them in 2005. They're scattered throughout much of central California and Northern Nevada, and most are very good. Virtually all offer a filling, balanced meal at a budget price, with the option to order an entree from a list ranging from a half dozen to twice that. Both... More

We love this restaurant! The owner's are good friends of my husband's parents. The food is great! No one can walk out of their hungry!! My personal favorite is the bread, butter, bean & a little salsa on top! I could live on it!! It's a casual atmosphere, people come in dressed anywhere from sweats to fancy dresses & men... More

We had lunch there today. Awesome! I just ordered the "set up". Which included soup, beans salsa (the worlds best ), bread, butter, green salad and marinated tomatoes. My husband ordered the roasted lamb. The Basque folks reall know lamb. We felt just like family.

Basque restaurants are a unique experience for the diner. The food, served family style, is traditional. Without ordering an additional entree, one can eat cabbage soup, beans, salad, spicy stewed tomatoes, bread, pickled tongue -- and leave feeling fully satiated. Better yet, is the sense of belonging to the community of diners, even when you know no one else in... More

Woolgrowers is a family owned Basque restaurant. It is a local favorite for couples, family gatherings and celebrations. It is a Bakersfield landmark. If you grew up here you have probably spent many birthday celebrations and adult friends birthday celebrations here. It is a fun, relaxing and delicious restaurant. Traditional French Basque Cuisine at its best.

Going to Woolgrower's for dinner is a one of a kind experience. The food is good and satisfying, but that isn't the best reason to go. when you walk through the doors of this resturant, you immediately feel like family. It is alive with fun, food, family, and probably friends you haven't seen in years. With the relaxed picnic bench... More

Wool Growers is truly unique and I love eating there! It is by far my favorite basque restaurant in town and we have many! It is pretty traditional as far as the set-up goes, cabbage soup, beans, salsa, bread and butter, and all the other sides, but I love the atmosphere there the most!! They have 2 bars, a large...

This is the place. There are others that are really good but this is the plae to get the authentic Basque food that everyone talks about. Many entres to choose from with a generous "set-up" that can fill you up just fine. Great table wine and service - this is the place in Bako to go for awesome Basque food... More

Perhaps it is because I spent every Friday night here with my family and friends, while growing up in Bakersfield, but If I was ever in the awful situation of having a "last meal" Wool Growers would be on the menu. Family style, Basque food fed the traditional way. Soup, salad, a wedge of blu cheese upon asking, beans, salsa,... More
