Food & Drink

After your ride, refuel at one of our fine restaurants.

I suggest Red House BBQ if you are in the mood for some fantastic smoked goodness with that small town feel. Their brisket is like mana from heaven. Mano also hand picks the finest craft beers (bottles, no taps).

If you feel like pizza, pasta, and suds, check out TK Pizza. They have fantastic craft beer on tap and a cool industrial vibe. Either one is a solid choice after an epic ride on our trails!

After the Run: Local Favorites

Red House BBQ Best BBQ in Kern County!
Village Grill Diner-style food with a little bit of everything from burgers to breakfast to liver & onions.
Gracian's Grill Despite the looks of things the cooks here are top notch so don't be afraid to try a fancy dish or special. Last time I had almond crusted Mahi Mahi...delicious!!!
Taco Samich Carnitas! Oh yeah!
Las Palmas Mexican Restaurant Good food, but don't do takeout if you want to eat in the car. They do not wrap their burritos in foil, they are served in a styrofoam container.

Kelcy's Cafe The greatest home town restaurant
Kohnen's Country Bakery The Cubano will not disappoint. I would have added a picture but the sandwich didn't last long enough.
