The July To-Do List »
Use YP's sizzling summer checklist to pack in as many backyard barbecues, family trips, and memorable outings as you can before the kids head back to school.
My husband and I have been waiting for this place to open every since we saw the sign go up, but we did not expect just how big this place was going to be. First of all it looks fantastic inside. When we came it was just after five and very busy. We had to wait for just over thirty minutes, but there was so much to do it went by very fast. There are a bunch of vintage fire truck photos around the bar and restaurant area, and one huge mural in the dining area. It looks like it might be Chester Ave way back when. Once you get past the restaurant and the bar there is a huge area with very nice pool tables. I don't know how many but there was a lot of them. There in also a nice size video game area where the kids can win tickets. I didn't count but there were flat screen everywhere and a really big projector screen in the bar. We never made it upstairs so I can't tell you about that but our waiter said it was the VIP area. The diner service was quite slow but the food was really good. My husband had the filet it was very tender and had a great flavor. My steak wrap was out of this world good.
Europhoria/ Club Tan/ Eurotan they are all awesome. Not only are they there to serve you but they know what they are talking about. Each employee is trained to know about everything they sell/utilize. Example, I got a dermasweep facial(which are fabulous) and my aesthetician knew every detail about the products she was using on my face. She even recommended to me a different type of facial that would really help benefit the type of skin I have. Yes, it can be pricey...BUT...you will find all there services to be extremely beneficial in the long run. It might be kind of scary to sign up for a year contract but as I have come to find out it is awesome because I can maintain my color my nails AND my skin all year long! I haven't yet tried everything on the menu but I cannot wait till I have the chance too. I have noticed a lot of the reviews claim they have to book so far out but that is not true. They are open now longer hours to help benefit every customer! I wouldn't give this place anything less than 5 STARS!!
I have passed this place many times over the years and yet did not go in; the windows etc always made it look closed. Was next door for another reason so went in to look around. Was so surprised to see a REAL Mexican restaurant in Bakersfield. Got the fish taco on suggestion of lovely waitress, and it was huge. One was plenty for $4.50. I went back the next night to get the whole fried fish..delicious and so filling. I will go back, as I have a couple of weeks to eat alone, and I love seafood. This is the best; I eyed other people's plates and will go back tomorrow for the bacon/cheese shrimp, which is highly acclaimed by many. Don't pass this place up. The furniture is old, and it is mainly Hispanics there, and the menu is in Spanish but with English translations. You can always tell a great ethnic restaurant by whom eats there. The staff was so friendly. You can spend little or a lot. Believe me, the taco at $4.50 is unlike any other Fish taco you have had.
