Apart from being a great pub, Bakersfield OTR offers a variety of amazing tacos. What surprised me most was the quality freshly made chips and salsa with a hint of lime. I also got black beans along with my chips and it tasted delicious. I tried the classics from the taco menu like the Pastor and Fish Taco to name... More

This place is always packed! But the service is quick and the food is very tasty. So are the margaritas! We started with the chips and queso! Best we ever had! Our table ordered a variety of the tacos and everyone said they were great! I had the Polo and the Pork Belly. Very flavorful combination of pork, pineapple and... More

We've been here several times and have never been disappointed by anything. The tacos are great, drinks are well made and the guacamole......by far the best we've ever had....we'll usually go through 2 orders just for the 2 of us!

We've heard great things and decided to stop in around 11pm. It was crowded, we got lucky to get one of the last tables available. It's a small place so it's not very roomy at the seats, but the service was great. The spicy margaritas and the tacos!!!! YUM! Great variety of tacos and the flavors they combine are so... More

Stopped in for lunch after some shopping. We were very lucky to get seated right away as many after us were looking at a 45 minute wait. This place is small. Many people eating at the bar -- as there are limited tables. We started with the chips and queso which was excellent. Then had the pollo, short rib, and... More

I've been here many times and always have a great time and great food. There isn't one taco on the menu I wouldn't eat! The margaritas are great too. Not a bad place for kids either. I've had my daughter in here before and she enjoyed it as well.

Visited for lunch on the high recommendation of a friend - not disappointed! Nice menu of specialty cocktails, draft beer, traditional Mexican appetizers, street style tacos and more. Chips/Guac much better than average, as were black beans. The tacos were outstanding. Fish was crispy, shredded pork tangy, veggie choices good too. Sauces were tangy with some kick, but not too...

Bakersfield is known for their tasty tacos and guacamole! Plus they'll serve you a draft in a cowboy boot mug! Great atmosphere!

Stoped for a few drinks and a quick bite to eat. Had the sample menu , nachos, salad and tacos, was delicious especially the short rib one. Sampled a few bourbons as well. The place was backed and a great atmosphere.
