Then they brought out this unbelievable queso ($5)! Seriously – I would go back for this in a heartbeat. Of course – I am a cheese addict – but everybody was raving about the queso! It’s in a cast iron skillet and bubbly hot and just cheesy broiled deliciousness. I could seriously stop with the queso & guac – but hey – why not drink and eat more?!
Me on the other hand – well – I’m a complete lightweight when it comes to drinking. So I asked for a half-weight margarita with salt. She looked at me a little funny when I asked for HALF the tequila but kindly obliged. I even got to drink TWO of them! Oh yeah – living on the edge…
These were really good – the “light” version they made me was perfect – lots of tangy lime flavor and lots and lots of salt! I’m not much of a drinker at all – but this I would order again and again.
They have a small menu with a couple of salads, a couple of tortas (my favorite type of sandwich ever!) and 8 kinds of tacos ($3-4). I had a fish and a pastor (pastor shown with the pineapple). The tacos are small – as another review mentioned – I could probably eat 20 of them – but not after the chips, guac and queso – that’s where they get ya! I did like the tacos a lot – the corn tortillas were crispy and I like having little bites – so I could try multiple flavors of tacos. I liked the pastor better than the fish…but both were good.
Why Should You Go? It’s a definite must-visit in OTR. They’re only open for lunch Fri-Sun as an fyi. Everything we had was great and the staff was very attentive and friendly. They also have lots of recommendations when it comes to drinks. Obviously for me – it wasn’t of much use to me – but others found the staff really helpful! So visit Bakersfield OTR and enjoy – along with everybody else that managed to get there before me! 🙂
