I love Basque food once in a while. This is a great place to eat it.

Basque cuisine does not flood the U.S. In California, Bakersfield is a center for it (with another great Basque place in Los Banos).

The food here is very good and plentiful portions which makes the prices reasonable. Haven't been here in awhile, need to visit again. The atmosphere is bland, but I don't go there to eat atmosphere.

This is a family restaurant. It is not romantic and fancy, but is is a good place to eat. I was a little confused how menu items were priced. When you sit at the table - the waiter brings you vegetable soup (which was my favorite), beans, salad, spicy salsa, bread... - you can ask for more of these Items... More

Traditional Basque restaurant. Lamb is there speciality here. The Oxtails are tasty and tender. Family style dining. Very causal and homey atmosphere. Enjoy coming with friends and staying within budget for nice meal. Service is very friendly.

Wool Growers has been here for decades and is one of the best of the Basque. Lamb is the specialty, the chops are delicious. The garlic chicken is scrumptious. My husband swears by the veal....

Get ready for a fabulous meal with plenty to eat and take home afterward. The service was superb. My wife had the filet and she said is was as good as any she had eaten. I had the lamb chops and they were huge and delicious. I had a bit of the filet also and I agree that it was... More
