It a step back in time--think Happy Days--original decor. Food was excellent, service was friendly. I would go back.

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

I only stop in for breakfast, its a coffee shop breakfast. The best part of the place is the walls of old Tehachapi photos. The history of the town is on the walls.

I ate there with my friend because I had heard that the food was good and the portions generous. The information was correct. I had the daily special and Dale had strawberry waffles. The diner was busy but we received our meals in a timely manner. The walls are covered with pictures of Tehachapi and Mojave.

Nothing particularly special here unless you like their in-house made chicken fried steak that is a local favorite. No bad dishes worth mentioning but solid country cooking that includes well prepared breakfasts that are local favorites. Prices most reasonable and okay for a quick fast meal or a slow cup of coffee and a visit with friends.
