“Beer and Onion Rings!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We weren't impressed with our first visit to City Slickers, but on the second trip our friends led us to the bar and now we're fans! Service was much better on that side, and since I wasn't upset about waiting 40 minutes for the food, I realized it was really good. We shared a pitcher of beer (they have 16 on tap) and the onion rings were the best I've ever had. For the sports lovers, there are lots of TV sets, and in the evenings you'll find a variety of events including line dancing and karaoke. But, it's the food I'll go back for; a nice selection of salads, seafood, and steaks, all served with delicious biscuits and sides.

“City Slickers”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Good food and nice atmosphere. Has a sports bar area which is very noisy, but thankfully is separated from the restaurant.
It is a little pricey but has quality food and their biscuits, which come to your table before you order are really GOOD! We always ask for extras and then take them home.
Try the deep fried pickles.

“City Slickers- GO THERE FOR SURE !!!”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

oUTSTANDING !! Based on two locals, we tried this restaurant, and were so very pleased!!! Staff was friendly and interested in us, atmosphere was just fine, we ate on the dining room side. The fdod service quickly and on lovely dishes was excellent. Tortilla soup was great,and so were the cheese biscuits. My husband said it was the best steak he ever had - center cut sirloin, medium rare and done just right. Don't listen to others, take our word for it, we travel all over the country, and this is a good one! Most Tehachapi restaurants rated just so-so, this one deserves to be rated much better than it is..

“Perfect for us - the weary travelers”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

The night before we moved into our home in Tehachapi, we came here late for dinner, so we ate on the bar side. We were greeted cheerfully, served graciously and those cheese biscuits were to die for! My husband loved the chicken tortilla soup, and I just had the seasonal veggies. Yum! We'll definitely come back, and soon!
