Bakersfield Hound May 19, 2014 03:10 PM

Sometime ago, maybe 4-6 years there was a discussion about, I think Mexican, about a place out in the middle of nowhere North of Clovis I believe, maybe along Auberry Road. I've searched the board but can't find about it anywhere. Somebody remember this discussion?
Thanks for the help.

    Danny, Velasco's in Prather about 10 mins N of Clovis.
    The owner/chef was Don Fernando. They are still using his name, but I don't know if he is actually there.


    Got good reviews on Yelp.

        Good to know...I drive right by there whenever I do a backpacking trip out of Edison, Florence, or Courtright. Looks like a good place to stop for a meal.

          If you do stop by, please post to let us know what you think. It's been years since I've been there. If Don Fernando is still there, it should be great.

        Don Fernando's is further west of Prather on Auberry Rd. and Wellbarn (just west of the fire station.) Velasco's is in Prather at the shopping center where Auberry Rd. and Morgan Canyon meet. Both are very good places. I was in Velasco's the other night and had the carne asada tacos. Very good.

          Thanks for clearing that up, PC. Is Don Fernando still the chef at the old place? Also, do you have the name of his place?
