BAKERSFIELD BASQUE RESTAURANTS
When people hear that I’m a Kern County native, the #1 thing people always seem to know about are the Basque dining establishments in Bakersfield. I’m not going to sit here and break them down, menu vs. menu. These are simply my recommendations, and I haven’t eaten at most of these places in awhile.
Why now? I went to Bakersfield last night right after our second practice to celebrate my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary at Benji’s on Rosedale Highway, and it reminded me of how much people like to talk about Bakersfield Basque restaurants. Not to mention how good the food is:
