The best traditional pizza in Bakersfield. All the entrees are good, especially the pesto sauce on cheese tortellini's. Family owned and operated, with three generations still working the place almost every day. Friendly staff and great service. We eat here at least twice a month!

Joseph's has always been one of my favorites in Bakersfield. Great steaks but the Calzone is my favorite! I'd recommend this place to anyone!
