My family and I visited Bakersfield together. We all enjoyed our food but the atmosphere was not good for families. Way too loud and "bar-feeling" for my taste.

Restaurant is very loud. Got seated facing patio on street, good place to watch hustle and bustle. Spicy margarita was good. Guac was great. Tacos are small, but good flavors.

We got there shortly after 11 on a Saturday. The place is rather small so you want to get there early to avoid peak times. We sat at the bar and shortly after the place was packed and people were waiting outside. We ordered case...More

Not for young kids. It is a bar atmosphere, always crowded and noisy.
