I've been here before and the service is always great and the food and drinks are awesome. The decor is authentic and the restaurant is large enough so wait times are minimal. A great place for lunch or dinner or a night out with friends for some drinks. Their tequila selection is probably the best in town.

The food at this restaurant is awesome. The salsa is the best I have ever eaten.The room has a great vibe and nice energy. The staff could not have been friendlier or more gracious. In town on business went for first time on Wednesday and just had to return on Thursday......that good.

This restaurant I recommend for their Fish Tacos. Not a big seafood fan but these babies were great. They also have the best mix drinks in town. Very authentic and delicious. Great variety of drinks and beer. I truly recommend for some great Mexican food.

Lemon martini: Kickass, deliciously sweet-tart, and six bucks. Pairs perfectly with the fish sliders.

I was impressed by the colorful, almost overwhelming decorations. It's a big restaurant inside part of the "Ice House" -- a large historical brick building in Bakersfield that was an actual ice house, many decades ago. Our party of ten was seated in what looked like a small "Frida Kahlo" room, with copies of Kahlo's paintings on the wall. They... More
