Must stop

This may not be the best dinner in the area, but they serve honest food, they are honest people and they let you look into the honest world of Tehachapi. They have picture of aircrafts dated back a lot of years. I think their closeness to Edward Air Base presented these history. The tritip lunch... read more

This place is definitely a step back in time. Upon entering you see the old style diner bar with bar stools to your left and the old diner decor with vinyl/aluminum seating to your right. As you walk into the main dining area, you will walls covered in Tehachapi's history. Loads of black and white images of the town's beginnings.... More

Average. Clean and plenty of servings. Never that busy which concerns me. The employees are always friendly and willing to help you.

I am a local here in Tehachapi for 40 yrs , Kelcys has always been one of my favorites. A few yrs ago they had a slight downtown in the quality of food . But the last 3-4 yrs they are at the top of the list for home style cooking. The best biscuits and gravy anywhere around, yummy homemade... More

Incredible collection of historical Tehachapi floods and mining with home cooking in old style restaurant -- nothing fancy but good food. Loved the boasted chicken.

I liked to eat here quite often before I moved to North Carolina. The food is always good and the service is prompt and courteous. Great for lunches, too. I love all the local photos and mementos hung on the walls. A sign of a good restaurant is how many locals eat there and Kelcy's is always a favorite of... More
