“Good food and fun place to eat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Friends and I ate here on a Sunday afternoon. Chips and salsa were great. The tacos were good and served on a large tray. Liked that we could try several kinds. Favorites were the pork, the chicken, and the fish.
Great flavors, good prices, and attractive atmosphere. Would definitely come back.

“Worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

A friend and I went here around 7ish during the week and waited for about a half hour. We ended up getting lucky and snagging a place at the bar in the meantime. Margaritas were delicious! Would highly recommend and if you have some time...go for it and split a pitcher you won't be sorry. The chips and salsa tasted fresh and homemade, nothing like your normal chips and salsa basket. Now for the tacos...the fish taco was our favorite, but the braised pork and chicken ones were good too. We also split the milanesa sandwhich and that was the best decision of our night...and to think we almost didn't get it! Highly recommended

“Delish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

Food and service were great! Would definitely eat here again. Margaritas and salsas are homemade as well as pretty much everything else. Very cute area of town lots of shops, unfortunately were stopped in on a Sunday and just about everything was closed

“Taco's Tequila and Whiskey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

This is just a great place. Menu is small but well executed, the short-rib taco is the best. The tv's are showing old westerns which is a nice change from all the sports. The crew is extremely friendly. Get there early as is always busy. Must see Jeff and Molly at the bar they're the best

“Terrible at best.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012 via mobile

Bakersfield is a new "trendy" spot with $4 (each) tacos and overpriced booze. The atmosphere rivals that of an out of control frat party with music louder than a Led Zepplin concert. The vibe is pretentious, with suburbanites and hipsters that want to be "seen". What a gimmicky travesty of garbage and overpriced bland food. Save your money and go to chipotle.
