any restaurants between LA and Bakersfield?

I'm headed up to Taft, CA (not too far from Bakersfield) later today. Anyone have any suggestions for restaurants up in that area, or between LA and Bakersfield not too far from the 5 Freeway? Hoping to avoid fast food.

  1. There was a thread a few months ago about Taft and I recall the writer found only a taco truck in Taft worth recommending, but not much else. Use the search feature and see what you can find, but there is little of interest along the way. Bakersfield Basque restaurants are worth a detour in to town if you have the time. Again, a search of this website will bring out the best recommendations.
