My wife and I stopped at J's Place yesterday while in Bakersfield. I ordered the catfish plate with greens, mashed potatoes, and mac n cheese. The food was outstanding. The service was great and the atmosphere was appealing. We will definitely be going there again.

3 Crunchy corn breaded catfish wrapped in a corn tortilla stuffed with fresh cabbage and tangy sauce. It filled me up. Service is always better than good.

Great soul food place in Bako. The waffles were delicious. The fried chicken was moist and crispy. Ribs were tender and juicy. All the portions were generous. Would definitely come back.

I don't know. If I remember correctly, they do accept credit cards so I'm sure AmEx should be accepted. Heading there again this year for the holidays. Can't wait! Hope things work out for you and enjoy J's!
