We always go to Mexicali (original location) when visiting family in Bakersfield. The food and service is great. I recommend giving it a try.

“Very conventient for The Marriott at the convention centre”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The Marriott is not near many restuarants which are in walking distance. The Mexicali was very good, service quick and efficient and not overly expensive. We thought ourselves lucky to find it considering where the Marriott is situated

Ate at the downtown restaurant & found the food to be very good. We ere there on a Sunday night. The atmosphere & service met expectations. Really enjoyed seeing the wait staff dressed as if they were serving in a restaurant in Mexico. Good value.
