It amazes me to see the level of customer service at this place... I'm lucky enough to visit J's Place once a week. Normally, either on a Saturday or Sunday... and every time, and I mean every time, the customer service and food is bar-none the best in Bakersfield. Shannon, the host at the front is simply on her game!... More

My family was driving to Yosemite national park. We had been in the car a while and decided to stop in Bakersfield. From other reviews on trip advisor this place sounded great.

It is awesome! Have tried most items on the menu and everything has been outstanding. If you dont want cholesterol or salt in your diet you better skip this but the fried cabbage is to die for. Neck bones and ox tail fall off the bone and melt in your mouth.

Not only is the chicken outstanding, the chicken and dressing (stuffing) is just like grandmas! When I first tasted it years ago, is so reminded me of Grandma Gentry's! Large portions and good prices!

My wife and I both ordered the catfish dinner and we were both extremely pleased with the service and excellent flavor. The fish was breaded just right and the sides were delicious and most adequate in size.

The food here is tasty. It is also high sodium and caloric. With that caveat, i enjoyed the fried chicken. The server was overworked and had trouble covering the tables. Her attitude was good.

NW CORNER OF ROSEDALE HWY & CALLOWAY As far fetched as this may seem, this place has the best beef tacos in Bakersfield. The service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is always friendly. China (the host at the front, China is her name) is the perfect person for the front of the house position... She's friendly, knowledgeable, and takes care... More

Down home southern cooking. Fried Chicken and all the great sides. The greens here are tangy and seasoned just right. They serve all the southern favorites and then some.
