My wife and I were coming back from Bakersfield when we stopped for gas along the 5 freeway before you go up the mountain, and we found this Mexican restaurant and cantina called Don Perico across the street from the gas station. We thought it was kind of an odd place to put restaurant like this (along the freeway, almost in the middle of nowhere) but I convinced my wife to go in. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in. The restaurant had an Island/Caribbean theme with bamboo decorations, tropical plants, sombreros and of course parrot decorations. The staff greeted us immediately and took us to our seats. We thought we would be alone but to our surprise there were a few other people there and more people showed up while we were eating. Looking around I saw that the they had a cantina and stage in the center of the restaurant. I imagine the have a band that plays on the weekends. The food was really good. They have a lot to choose from on there menu, tacos, burritos, enchiladas, seafood, etc. I got the carne asada plate and my wife had tacos. I really liked there rice and beans. Also the chips and salsa were pretty good. The carne asada that I ordered wasn't what I expected, but I'm mexican so I guess I have pretty high standards regarding this, lol. It was still good tho. My wife's carne asada tacos looked really delicious, they did hers right. The prices were also very good. Like $7-12 a plate. Overall, we had a good experience at this restaurant.
