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

Old fashioned grill and bar with emphasis on Basque style food. Make sure to come hungry and order a "set-up" and an entree. Great grilled steaks and lamb chops. If you are in for an adventure try the Basque sausage or the Ox-Tail stew.

We looked forward to Basque food in Bakersfield and this experience was disappointing. We've visited the Basque region in Spain and enjoyed the unique food. This was more like a 50s diner in the US. Very crowded, noisy and frantic, but popular with locals. They serve large helpings and it's inexpensive, but not very good. In Burgos we enjoyed typical... More

Three of us for lunch, ate at the bar. Fast, friendly service by Joe The Bartender. Ordered the house wine, ok, but not my favorite. Switched to beer. I should have ordered something traditional off the menu, but instead went with one of the two daily specials. Fried chicken. Ordered dark meat but got a mix. Tasted like cooking oil.... More

My family has been coming to this restaurant for over 40 years. The food is good and you definitely will not go away hungry, The soup with beans and salsa is delicious and we can't get enough of the pickled tongue. In addition, the bartenders are very generous. Be sure to tip them well. There is nothing fancy about this... More

If you want a traditional and genuine Basque meal, Woolgrowers is the "go to" place in Bakersfield!! All but the entree are served family style, so it's as much fun as it good!!!

As Noriega's was closed for a two-week vacation, we chose to eat at Wool Growers. It was a good alternative, but we missed the experience of the "family-style" tables, Both food and service were very good.
