Worst place to eat at... Evryone should double check there bill before paying cause they will over charge you for everything. They also add the tip on it and still expect you to leave a tip on the table.. Worst service and food.. Will never go ther again.. Place should be closed if you ask me!!! Undocumented people work there...
In the mid 90's I lived in Bakersfield and went to El Jacalito 5-6 times per year. My meal of choice was Camarones a la Diabla and it was always excellent.
In March, 2010, I was visiting in the area and went back to the restaurant, the first time in 14 years, and ordered the same dish. Unfortunately, the recipe was changed; the meal was much blander and frankly mediocre. What made it worse was that I wrote to the owner afterward asking about the change and never got a response.
Placed a $90 order for an event at work. Received the worst customer service ever from the owner. You would think that he'd apprecite his customers after giving him business, but instead we were treated like an inconvinience. He needs to take a social skills or customer service class and learn to treat his customers with respect. If it wasn't for us he wouldn't be in business.
