Stopped by while on a work trip. The service was great. The server brought my check right away so I didn’t have to wait for it later. I ordered a shrimp street taco, side of corn and a soft drink. $16 with tip. The taco...was small but very flavorful. The corn was a bit spicy. I’d return.More

Definitely not for over 60 crowd, too loud. Food was eatable, but nothing I would want again. Mostly tacos, salads, and a chicken sandwich. Service was good but I do not recommend

I wish I had taken photos of the food. I’ve never been so impressed by a salad. We had a full size of the Willie. Seriously it was so refreshing and delicious. Best part it was only $10! Definitely enough for 2 people. I also...had the pollo verde tacos. Not authentic but I wasn’t expecting them to be. Great flavor. Our serve Caitlin was great as well. 10/10 recommend.More

This is a pretty small taco restaurant that had a good little vibe. It does not scream Mexican food though from the outside or when you first step in. We happened to go here on a Tuesday which meant it was taco Tuesday! $3 tacos...were great. We got the chips and salsa and queso as appetizers. The salsas were good but not typical. One was very smoker and the verde was very mild. The queso was extremely thick. Tasted good but it was hard to eat because of the top cheese layer. For tacos I got the short rib and carnitas. Both were good but both had a cinnamon or nutmeg type flavor which isn't my favorite. Service was 10/10. She did great.More

We found Bakersfield here on Trip Advisor when we were looking for something to eat between the Country Music Hall of Fame and our evening plans. This was a very short walk from the Country Music Hall of Fame and we didn't want BBQ, so...we wound up here late afternoon. We were pleasantly surprised by the menu but others may find it limiting. They have a large taco menu that you order individually to make up your meal. We started with chips and salsa along with margaritas that were pretty good. We each had a couple of tacos and shared a side of corn and it was all enjoyable. The bartenders were attentive. It was perfect for what we were looking for.More

Stopped in after an evening on Broadway when heading back to our hotel. Our waitress, Ashley, was fabulous. Had chips, chorizo and queso dip, tacos and a pitcher of margaritas. They use lemon in addition to the regularlly used lime juice and we didn’t care...for that taste. Ashley brought us some orange juice and additional agave syrup and we doctored it up to suit our taste. The little open faced tacos were an unusual mix of flavors with a mix of ingredients that were extremely pleasing to the taste buds! I wanted to try one of each.More

My husband and I were in Nashville for the day and chose Bakersfield based on other reviews. What a great little spot to eat lunch. We had chips and salsa, which are both made in house. The chips were light, crispy and served with two...salsas. We ordered the el pastor, hongo, and carnitas street tacos. All were excellent and $3 on Taco Tuesday. We also had the cauliflower side, which was browned on top and had just a slight bite from the cheese. Our server delivered our drinks, chips, and food in a timely manner and checked on us several times. We'd definitely go back. Parking in the area can be tough, but after circling the block a couple times we found a small lot with some spots.More

Great tacos, friendly service, good prices. I had two tacos and a beer. The bill was so small that I felt obligated to tip heavily. Very tasty food

Some of the best Baja shrimp street tacos I have ever had. I guess I’m just too old to appreciate the picnic style seating. Be sure to try the short rib queso.

BAKERSFIELD RESTAURANT, located on the corner of Demonbreun & Third Ave. in Nashville turned out to be one of the best & fun restaurants right off lower Broadway. The food was phenomenal as were the margaritas. All fresh ingredients, not premade, or pre-mixed. What was...even better was the friendly service we received from everyone……service, hostess’s & the bartenders. We visited there 5 times during our 7 day visit. We enjoyed, more than once, Margaritas, Taquito’s & any number of the wonderful salads. Even though it doesn’t look like a Mexican restaurant, it has an upscale flair about it. If you have not tried it, please do so you won’t be disappointed. Our food server was Melissa and our fave bartender is Elliot. Because of them and others we will definitely be going back! I give this restaurant an A+.More
