Muertos Kitchen and Lounge downtown is a great place to get a great meal at a great price.

The first thing to note about Muertos is its relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.  The lights are dimmed to just the right amount of light, and the brick walls are covered with magazine covers and pictures of rock stars that came to Bakersfield.

Before my companions and I ordered our food, we were served chips with an amazing halibut salsa that was made at the restaurant. I can’t think of another word that describes how great the salsa was, but it was amazing.

When it comes to food, Muertos offers a great variety of food including burgers, salads and tacos.  I went with the Hudson.  The Hudson is a cheeseburger with bacon and a fried egg on top.  I ordered a burger because that’s really the best way to size up a new restaurant.  If a restaurant can’t make a good burger, how can you expect them to make anything else well.

I can’t come close to describing how awesome the Hudson is.  If it were possible for my mouth and that burger to high five each other, that’s what would have happened.

The awesomeness of the burger made it more than worth the nine dollars it’s priced at.  Another perk to Muertos is how inexpensive it is.  All of the food is around ten dollars and it doesn’t disappoint.

The whole experience, from arriving to leaving, well exceeded any expectations.

It’s a place you’re going want to go back to because it’s got everything you would want from a restaurant.

Muertos is located at 1514 Wall Street.
