If you are looking for a good Mediterranean restaurant in Bakersfield, then look no further than Flame and Skewers, a restaurant located in downtown Bakersfield.
When I first entered the restaurant, I was greeted with Arabic music and an aroma that was soothing to my soul and my stomach.
As I approached the counter, the smell of chicken, lamb, beef, and French fries made it very difficult to choose one item.
Rip Editor in Chief Nick Stockton suggested that I get a lamb kabob, but I decided to search the menu for something else.
After browsing the menu for a few minutes, I decided to order the beef salad and some French fries with a Pepsi to drink.
It was so hard to decide what I should order because Flame and Skewers has plenty of variety and many different foods to choose from.
The beef salad was excellent, and while I also enjoyed my Pepsi, I enjoyed the fact that I was able to get a free refill.
Most restaurants usually charge their customers for refills but not Flame and Skewers.
The beef salad was made with lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots and radishes; the beef was mixed in with all of these items.
Because of the abundance of beef in the salad, after I finished it, I was full.
The French fries were pretty good; they had the right amount of salt, and they were cooked to perfection.
The fries were crunchy and very well prepared by the chef.
The prices are very reasonable considering how much food you get per meal.
I paid $9.26 for my meal and got more than my money’s worth.
The service was excellent and the atmosphere was fantastic.
While not as spacious as most places, I would say Flame and Skewers is a medium-sized restaurant; it has a counter where people can sit and eat and on a nice day people can sit at the tables located directly outside the restaurant.
I decided to sit inside so I could get an inside view of the restaurant.
The structure of the building was very nice and whoever designed this place did a great job of making this place enjoyable and very comfortable for its customers.
The restaurants’ management and staff are very friendly and they do a great job of serving each and every customer that walks through their door.
I have a feeling that Flame and Skewers will be around for many years to come. I highly recommend Flame and Skewers not only for the wonderful food, but also for the Mediterranean experience. Flame and Skewers is located at 1201 24th St.
