This spot is awesome, I love the food here. Food is good,service is good and the plates will fill you up . Nice variety of food, and I love the grits, BLT and chai mmmm. They've also recently expanded so there's more room to seat people but there's still not enough parking, try to carpool if you come here.

We found this place as we were passing through Bakersfield. It was pretty crowded inside, but we were seated immediately. The portion sizes are big. We ordered a sausage, mushroom, and swiss omlete, a breakfast quesadilla, and a ham and egg breakfast. The omlete was very tasty, the sausage and mushrooms were excellent. The quesadilla was great too. The ham... More

I eat here at least once a month, and have never been disappointed. Food is always delicious, and I never go away hungry! Can get busy, so I always go early. Highly recommended!

Good and abundant quantity. The service is reasonable considering the place is always crowded. That should speak for The Knotty Pines reputation as the locals keep returning. Good old style food at reasonable prices.

The food is good but the cafe is packed most of the time so be prepared to wait in line. Could use a remodel on inside with updates. Friendly service. We go frequently.

I met a business client here at his suggestion as it was close to the oil field that we had to visit. As I approached on Norris Rd. at 06.15, I was dismayed at the number of vehicles in the parking lot. The cafe looked small, so I was prepared to arm wrestle someone for a table. But on entering,...

Arriving on a weekday at 11:30 and thinking we would beat the noon rush, we found the place was nearly packed. The owners, Carla & Ronnie Cope have the business of mostly locals, but are expanding their customer base as the word gets out. In fact, they are planning a building expansion soon. There was counter seating, but we opted... More

It's conveniently located near the freeway. I grabbed some breakfast before heading out of town but they have excellent biscuits and gravy.

Found this by checking reviews on Trip Advisor and I have to say they were pretty accurate. The food is great, you may have to wait, and the portions are huge. Try a skillet breakfast, the biscuits are insane! Would love to come back if in the area again. Not pricey at all.
