Used to love coming here for their happy hour while waiting for a movie to start. Last time we were here, all the tables in the happy hour section were either taken or haven't been cleared.

Dinned here on a one night stop in Bakersfield. Food was excellent, staff friendly with pleasant surroundings. Ribeye steak good quality and not too pricey.

Excellent atmosphere, comfortable bar and outside seating, friendly and supportive staff. While Tahoe Joes is most noted for it's meat presentations, it does provide fish and salad choices. I had the Citrus Chicken Salad. It was both large and very tasty and I was able to eat it all. I say that was not my original reaction when seeing it... More

Love coming here for their happy hour to kill time waiting for the movie to start. Their margaritas are strong and their wings are yummy.

Just another chain restaurant. The service was slow (they were not very busy) our food was average, could be compared to chili's, Applebee's, genre of taste and serving size. The decor was nice that why this establishment reached three stars. Otherwise just based on food and service alone a solid two star.
