    55555 by Cara

  • CzarshawTake it from me: No trip to Bakersfield is complete without a Short Rib taco, chips and queso, and a margarita pitcher.

    55555 by Czarshaw


  • Rayshaunda ByrdTacos are good but I expected more. A tad overhyped. Prepare to wait for a table up to a hour or longer as they don't take reservations.

    33333 by Rayshaunda Byrd


  • Katie J.The house margarita is super tasty!

    55555 by Katie J.

    55555 by TV Food Maps


  • Ronald VieiraMargaritas!!!

    55555 by Ronald Vieira

    55555 by Kendall Bruns

    55555 by Ford K.

    55555 by Carolina R R.


  • David BilliterI absolutely loved the Short Rib Tacos. They also have a decent beer selection and the Chips and Queso makes for the perfect appetizer.

    55555 by David Billiter


  • Erica TShort rib and a shot of the day is the way to go. And some queso or guac of course.

    55555 by Erica T


  • Drew M.Belly up to the bar and order a PBR (it comes in a boot shaped glass). Guacamole and chips are always a good start, followed by a shot of Dickell.

    55555 by Drew M.

    55555 by Aurelio C.

    55555 by Caleb H.


  • Serious EatsThe long is often long for house-made (gluten-free) corn tortilla tacos, thin chips, excellent tequila and potent mixed drinks, with a pretty constant party atmosphere.

    55555 by Serious Eats

    55555 by Kyle S.

    55555 by Julie N.


  • Sean H.Try the Tacos (Assorted) - Pastor, short rib, and fish tacos done traditionally. Take your sour cream and shredded cheddar home kids. This is the good stuff

    55555 by Sean H.
