Quick Lunch in Bakersfield

Does anyone have any recommendations for a quick lunch in the Bakersfield area? I am driving through and would like something better than the usual fast food, but time constraints dictate a short stop. Any good and quick places? Thanks.

  1. How quick is quick? Are you looking to pick it up and take it with you?

    If you have say half an hour or so to sit, go to Luigi's - they are only open for lunch. (from 11:00 or 11:30 until 2:00) Best to get there before noon (or after 1:00) though, as it fills up quickly.

      30 min is quick. I am looking for something in & out in 30 min close to 99 or 58.

    2. It's at 725 E. 19th Street. 661-322-0926

      Take California exit. Head east to Union. Turn left, north on Union. Union to Truxton East, turn right. At Baker, turn left. Go up one black. On 19th turn right, will be on your right hand side.
