Wool Growers never fails you. My visits have been over sixty years, so I'm somewhat an expert. Now I'm limited to my annual visit to Bakersfield. We entertained friends, a dozen of us total, and my bill was less than $200 bucks for all the fine food you could eat of GREAT Basque fare. Don't miss the Wool Growers, or... More

There are at least three other Basque restaurants in Bakersfield, but my favorite is Woolgrowers. It's like going home and having dinner with your family. From the soup and beans, to the marinated tongue, fresh french fries, and the excellent entrees - fried chicken, pork chops, lamb, etc., the ambience, is a wonderful experience. A must if one is looking... More

We had an excellent dinner. We had steak which was prepared perfectly. All of the sides were wonderful. It was a very fun visit.

As a, lifelong Bakersfield resident I have eaten in every Basque restaurant in town many times and Woolgrowers is consistently good. I always take out of town guests here. You won't leave hungry for sure!!

My wife and I have eaten at a number of Basque restaurants in the California Central Valley. The food at the Wool Growers was as good as we've eaten, and the service was exceptionally friendly.

Wool Growers never disappoints, particularly when you make a special point of passing through Bakersfield to take in a long and satisfying lunch. Your lunch begins with some of the staples of a traditional Basque lunch and don't skip that part of your meal. Cabbage soup, salad and terrific bread are served for a small nominal charge. The wines are... More

Such a great spot for Basque food. They offer the same service and quality of food as they have for so many years. A Bakersfield must.
