    by Yaqui Written Jul 17, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Love this place and location. It is in the Market Place off of the Ming Avenue down by the Edwards Cinema Theatre. It is not a large restaurant, but has a wonderful covered patio to enjoy the outdoors and people watch. It is near the hub-bub of hang out by the theatre. Lots of wonderful and beautiful landscaping and a wonderful fountain to enjoy too!

    Happy Hours Mon-Friday 3:00pm-6:00pm
    Kareoke: Every Thursday Night 9:00pm-Midnight

    Favorite Dish: I have enjoyed the Carne Asada, which is a huge steak with enchiladas, rice, beans and all other kinds of fixings. Great food here!

    Another wonderful place located right by the Edwards Cinema Theatre in the Market Place. It is right in the central hub-bub of activities. It has that old fashion feel to it, great burgers and fries. Love the cherry cokes too! Not a big place, but has a great covered patio to dine in too! I think you'll enjoy this place!

    Favorite Dish: Burger and fries. Can't go wrong with that. Great American old fashion food! Love it here!

    Coconut Joe's Beach Grill: Great food and fun decor

    This is a neat restaurant. You order your food at the counter, but they do bring it to you. Lots t look at all over the place. The atmosphere is very colorful and cheery. It looks small from the outside, but is suited to seat a lot of customers. The food was excellent and so was the service.

    Monday - Sunday
    10am-9:30pm

    Favorite Dish: We had this: Chicken & Tri-tip dinner starts with 2 pieces of tender chicken - marinated in our secret blend of island spices and fruit juice and grilled to perfection over our famous mesquite grill. Next we add 2 ounces of succulent marinated tri-tip beef, a delicious tossed garden salad (with our signature oil & vinegar dressing), and our beans (prepared with spices and water - NO LARD!). We finish off this huge platefull, with a Pyrenees sour dough roll (with butter), and our freshly made chunky salsa. Your meal also includes Iced Tea and Lemonade.http://www.coconutjoes.com/xbanquethall/whatstoeat.php

    Sequoia Sanwich Company: Great Sandwiches!

    by Yaqui Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you like fresh food, then you will love this place. They make everything fresh everyday. They have a huge variety of sandwiches, soups and salads. I’ve frequent this place whenever I have jury duty. It is located right in the downtown area and right down the street from the state and federal courthouses. The food is great and the service is fast, especially for those who are on a tight lunch break. Not a big place, but tables inside and a couple patio tables are outside.

    Store Hours:
    10:30 am - 2:15 pm
    Monday-Saturday.
    Closed Sunday

    California Pizza Kitchen: Awesome pizza place!

    by Yaqui Updated Mar 15, 2009

    This is a wonderful place to eat in Bakersfield. They make traditional and some very untraditional pizzas. We bought our son a traditional cheese pizza, but turns out he tried my pizza with bacon and pineapple and obsolutely loved it. My hubby had a spaghetti dinner, which was really good too. Décor is simplistic, but modern. They have a wonderful patio area to dine at too and the entrance to the restaurant has a beautiful fountain to enjoy.

    Hours
    Monday - Thursday:11:00 AM - 10:00 PM
    Friday:11:00 AM - 10:00 PM
    Saturday:11:00 AM - 10:00 PM
    Sunday:11:00 AM - 9:00 PM

    Favorite Dish: California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) is a leader in authentic California-style cuisine with a recognized consumer brand and an established, loyal customer base. Of the chain’s over 250 restaurants, over 200 are company-owned and nearly 50 operate under franchise or license agreements. There are 26 CPK ASAP locations, 9 of which are company-owned and 17 of which are franchised. Another company-owned concept is LA Food Show Grill & Bar, of which there are two locations, in Manhattan Beach, CA and in Beverly Hills, CAhttp://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?c=122300&p=irol-homeprofile

    Barb's Lunch and More: Remember When!

    Is this a really cool place or what? I bet you didn't think places like this still existed anymore. Well, what makes it even more unique is that it is inside of the Old Woolworth building where they have the antique mall. So you can sit and enjoy that Cheese Burger along with being able to check out all the neat antiques too.
    They serve the typical diner food, but provide a Garden Burger, Sandwiches, Salads, Soups, Chili, and much more. So come in and checkout it out.

    Favorite Dish: The Cheese Burgers are always great here and malts are the cats meow! Ok, that just sounded so corny, please tell me to stop...hehe!

    Surf's up here!: Chuy's Mesquite Broiler

    by Yaqui Updated Oct 3, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cowabonga!

    I will say this another very unique place to eat. The decor reminds you of a surf shop gone wild if that is possilbe. I really like it. The food is really good and served a little different than most places. The servings are huge as far as I'm concerned, which you will get your money's worth. Come in, sit down, relax, and don't forget to bring your surf board. (Just kidding...hehe!)

    Favorite Dish: They have a huge selection so it is hard to choose when ordering.

    Logans's Roadhouse: Great Barbecue

    by Yaqui Updated Mar 15, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is another nice place. The food is great and so is the service. Locals like to come here and hang out having a beer or two at the bar or patio area. The décor is fun with painted western murals on the walls and a huge hint of NASCAR too. They serve peanuts as a snack and you can push the remnants onto the floor. They do not mind.

    11am-10pm Sunday through Thursday
    11am-11pm Friday and Saturday

    Favorite Dish: The high-quality, moderately-priced menu features over 30 entrees including aged steaks hand-cut fresh on premises, mesquite-grilled chicken, fresh ground steakburgers, baby-back ribs, seafood, and specialty salads made from only the freshest ingredients.http://www.logansroadhouse.com/all_about_us.aspx

    This is a favorite of many locals because of the friendly staff, comfortable decor, and good food. We like to come here for breakfast and to just sit and relax. It is located near the old downtown area. They have a very lovely patio in the back if you choose to sit outside and enjoy the wonderful summer afternoons or eveninigs.

    Farmers Boys: Country Style

    by Yaqui Updated Mar 15, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a very nice family orientated restaurant. It reminds me of many of mom’s kitchens and dinning décor. Very friendly and the food/service was good. It is always nice to try out a new place. My boys were pleased with the food, so that makes me happy.

    Favorite Dish: Founded by the Havadjias brothers 1981, this single restaurant focused on preparing generous portions of fresh food and serving it quickly to an ever-growing group of satisfied customers. The concept was so successful, that by 1997, the chain had grown to include eight family-owned restaurants, all in Southern California.http://www.farmerboys.com/

    Sadly this place couldn't compete with all the other businesses. Although, the place was a little dated, it was a place I enjoyed. Not just for the good food, service, and the wonderful history this place has.

    Wow, this place is great. I just think it is so neat that someone had the foresight in converting this wonderful piece of history to something everyone can enjoy and that would be food!!!!! The decor is great and comfortable and everyone is so friendly here. The food is great, so what else can I say. Come on in and enjoy!

    Favorite Dish: Steaks and the Malibu Chicken is yummy!
