My wife and I stopped at J's Place yesterday while in Bakersfield. I ordered the catfish plate with greens, mashed potatoes, and mac n cheese. The food was outstanding. The service was great and the atmosphere was appealing. We will definitely be going there again.

Great soul food place in Bako. The waffles were delicious. The fried chicken was moist and crispy. Ribs were tender and juicy. All the portions were generous. Would definitely come back.
