I went to Don pericos on Hageman to please my fiancee' since he wanted to do our rehersal dinner there. It's a party of 30 to 40 people, so I thought I would check it out first. I checked the eating area and I thought this is good our families would like it. Then we went to the bar and I thought, this could be fun! I'm going to try out their food and drinks to make sure this is it, before I ask for the manager to make arrangements! I was sooo excited... until I ordered!! ALL of the staff was extremely rude. They were critizing patrons in spanish. They thought my fiancee' wouldn't understand because he is white and has colored eyes, BUT he's LATINO!! and I'm Asian. The service at the bar was horrendous. The bartenders, which I later found out that the manager was serving as one of the bartender that day were absolutely horrible. They were also talking bad about the patrons having drinks there also; and even using profanity among themselves, talking about the ladies and which ones had big breasts and if they would 'hit it'. I was so disgusted I wanted to leave. But my fiancee' had ordered drinks, and he asked me to try the drinks.. They were horrible and bitter, It was supposed to be a sweet drink. I didn't want to to pay for anything! Rude, unruly staff, bad drinks and it took 45 minutes for the food to get there while all we had ordered were burrito and enchilada 2 dinner plates. I tried the food and it was 'ok' not the greatest but it was fair. I made sure I didn't complain during my stay because I know what they do to your food and drinks if you are rude and unpleasant with people like that. When I was done with our review, I asked for the manager and that's when they pointed him out to me and said ""he's at the bartending today"", the server didn't call him to our table. But when I saw that it was one of the guys using profanity and taking about the patrons; I just asked for the check and I told my fiancee', ""We are NEVER EVER steping into a Don Perico's again! We are NOT about to drop $2000.00 on our rehersal dinner here!"" He was dissaponted as well. One of the worst experiences that I have ever had in this town! Luckily we found a great place with yummy food and delicious drinks!! We are very happy about. If you are reading this, DON""T GO!!! Save your money for a better place. =)
I've been a customer of Don Perico's Resteraunt, since it was called "El Barrellito's" in Rosedale by the K-Mart. Those of you who have lived in Bakersfield a number of years will know how long that is!
Sunday brunch is my favorite, all you can eat buffett, for about $10 per person.
Monday night Fajitas are the best! Try their Chili Verde. My cousins come here so often they are called "The Sister's" and are always able to find a table.
