Best Mexican Food in Bakersfield!

My favorite dish is the Mole, savory with just a touch of sweetness! The shrimp dishes and choices are all amazingly delicious and unique. A must try! Family owned...with amazing personal service.

Love the new larger location. Best Mexican food in town! They have lunch specials and great salsa. All in a family atmosphere. They are always friendly and make you feel welcome.

This long time favorite Mexican seafood restaurant recently moved to a much larger location. They still have the same fabulous items on the menu, and the and the same extremely well trained staff. Just three times more of them. I highly recommend the ceviche appetizer. It also is great just by itself for lunch. This is a family owned restaurant,... More

We were driving through central CA and wanted a good place for lunch. According to Trip Advisor, this is the #1 restaurant in Bakersfield . We were not disappointed. All four of us picked entrees from the specials menu. The portions were just right for lunch. We all had plenty to eat and the salsa and chips were delicious and... More
