The Shed was closed for awhile and has just reopened. We went across the street for delicious barbecue at the Red House BBQ so cannot report on food quality, service etc. at The Shed. Maybe on the way back...

nice place to stop if you're driving through I-58. I always make a point of grabbing something to eat here. And the cookies will put you in a food coma :)

Parking is OK. Property is clean. Service was solid. Menu is varied. Food hot and fresh with good presentation. A little pricy. Worth trying.

Appears a little more Spartan than our last visit here. Bakery items did not appear to be fresh, so we passed. Open face chili burger (Chili Size) was very good as was my wife's soup. Service was okay, but nothing special.

The Shed has changed a little bit. Maybe new owners? Food still good especially breakfast when you are traveling thru Tehachapi. Very clean restrooms, which is nice. They have great fudge. Their gift shop area is almost gone -- it used to be such a fun place to buy little gifts. Warm and cozy inside the Shed. I like it... More

The Shed serves up very good home style favorites like large burgers, chili and, if you get there early, chicken pot pie and deserts

It's not a professional buffet. It looks like they hired someone to come in and set up some Chaffing Dishes to keep the food warm. The Roast Beef/Tri-tip with Red Peppers. Really? Who puts Red Peppers all over roast beef BEFORE you serve it to your customer. Wait I know, someone who wants to cover up the horrible cut of... More

Returned several times - soup & salad bar okay for the price. But rest of menu leaves much to be desired. Just have not got it together yet and new management has been there a year now.

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Lone Pine. The Shed has a spacious, rustic dining room, comfortable seating, and a remarkably friendly staff. My husband and daughter had sandwiches, which were huge, and stuffed with turkey and cheese. I tried the soup and salad bar--very fresh vegetables, and lots to choose from. The chicken noodle soup was... More
