This restaurant closed July 21, 2017. Do not understand August review. They could not have eaten in a closed restaurant. Description is not accurate. There were never picnic tables at Kelcys and when they were open they had a large parking lot.

Visited and took pics of pics on walls. This place has been in Tehachapi and family owned for many years. Still styled like a 1950s diner. Wonder pictures and artifacts on walls displaying the history of the town. Worth a stop in when passing through...More
