    Every single thing I put in my mouth here was delicious. The guac was great, the pork belly pastor taco and short rib taco were both great, as were the margaritas!

    The Short Rib taco was the best, but the chips and queso stole the show. Don't forget to try the red sauce on the table. IT'S OUT OF THIS WORLD.

    The 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.

    As a Texan, I was shocked by how on point Bakersfield was, from cocktails to guac, tortas to tacos. Our server was really helpful and made great suggestions. Fresh, exciting, fantastic!

    Street-style Mexican (tortillas made fresh everyday), plus laid-back bar atmosphere with lots of socializing. Menu is comprised primarily of delicious tacos, plus a couple salads and sandwiches.

    The Short Rib Torta is my favorite item on the menu. The telera roll is great and everything is perfectly balanced when you dip it in the roasted tomatillo salsa .

    Margs, queso with beef, all the tacos! Haven't had a bad meal here yet. Get there early in the day or put your name in early and walk around OTR while you wait

    Overall my visits to Bakersfield have been amazing! I've been to both the Cincinnati and Indianapolis spots. And I'm really looking forward to a possible Columbus location (from what I'm hearing)!

    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.

    The wait is always long, so get here early. Or just sit at the bar and eat chips and margaritas... they make one of the best margays I've ever had

    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

    Anddd, ask for the mole taco. It's made with chicken and a light mole so it's not overwhelming chocolate. Off menu for now so u gotta ask!

    Real good tacos, and good beer selection. Queso was great, comes out in a cast iron pan so it stays warm while you eat it.....

    Short rib tacos were great as was the fish taco. Don't pass up the Queso. Home made and better than most I've had

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

    1-2 tacos is a snack or bar meal, 3-4 tacos is a regular meal. All delicious, although the Huitlacoche was my favorite.

    One of the best spots to eat in the OTR! Great tacos and guacamole. Get a PBR in a boot, only $2!

    Do yourself a favor and try the Carmenita. Half sangria, half margarita. Not on the menu, but worth the request!

    Maybe before going to the other side where all the real bars are I'll have a big load of tacos since I heard small and Margaritas to see if they're Really #1.

    Get a margarita, even if you've had 6 beers & 2 mixed drinks at a wedding reception before coming.

    The chicken Morella taco is better than the Fish taco. Neat western atmosphere. Friendly attentive wait staff.

    Everyone raves about the tacos (all delish), but the short rib torta is a life-changer.

    Tacos 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.

    Ask for the Pollo Rojo tacos. New item, off menu for now. But they're the shiz

    The Chios and Guacamole were awesome. House margarita was great too. Taco's were different. Not worth the price.

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