    We had a great time at Bakersfield! The shrimp tacos, short rib tacos, fish tacos and the short rib queso were delicious. And the margaritas were awesome!

    Appetizers and drinks were outstanding - pineapple margaritas and short rib queso along with guacamole were excellent. Tacos were mediocre comparatively. Good ambiance; picnic tables as seating added a nice esthetic. Service was exceptional. Didn’t realize it was a chain restaurant.

    We're thrilled to hear that you had a great time and enjoyed our variety of tacos and short rib queso. It's also great to know that our margaritas hit the spot! We appreciate your positive feedback and look forward to serving you again soon.

    We went on Mother’s Day and had a great time. Loved sitting inside but yet felt like we were also able to enjoy the weather because of the open concept with no windows at the seating along the sidewalk. Service was great and so was the food

    I don’t think their tacos are good, I ordered the shrimp and fish tacos- my fish tacos were cold. But their management is excellent. The manager that evening stopped by our table just to check on us and I shared with her my issue and right away she took care of it. I appreciated her but if I come back I’ll only grab drinks because they superb!

    Street tacos are always good here. Guacamole is on point! I use Guacamole taste as a gauge of a good taco place! Our server Justin was patient with us while we didn't look at the menu and talked instead, and he was knowledgeable about the flavors offered and very friendly with the perfect amount of attention to our table. I am a regular here and recommend this place to everyone!

    We started a picnic table by the window, and the sun was beaming in. My face was sunburned by the time we left. They had no blinds on the windows that we could close they didn’t have a frozen margarita. I guess you can’t purchase a blender? They didn’t give us any plates to put our tacos on. They just brought them all on a big tray, the tacos are OK but not sure I would return!
    Bakersfield - DetroitResponded on March 17, 2024
    Thank you for the honest review. I apologize for the inconvenience of the sun. We have been looking into solutions to alleviate the direct sunlight. Our margaritas are shaken to order and our recipes are best served over the rocks. We definitely missed the mark on the service of bringing you plates for your meal. We set every table and should be providing fresh clean plates in between courses. This is a step to service we can work on and improve. I hope you would like to return sometime in the future and we can show you a great time! Please reach out to us at (313)974-7040 if you have any other comments you would like to address. I look forward to hearing from you! -Craig Davis (GM)
