they got an A but from what I was told they just took temperatures of food. But I saw cross contamination in the kitchen. For example, knife cutting meat might end of cutting vegetables without having been washed first. The back door wasn't kept closed enough and flies would get on prepped food if you noticed flies in the restaurant particularly by the windows, believe me the were flies in the kitchen and plenty of exposed food. About half the time it seemed we didn't have toilet seat covers which really is disgusting. I'd have to disinfect the toilet seat then line it with toilet paper which was time consuming but at least I was being safe about it. =\  (Jun 29, 2012 | post #17)

Ha ha it doesn't matter. All tips are split. Unless of course you tipped a family member in which case thYe almost indefinitely pocketed the tip. By the way, you never got back to me on how you would feel if they were taking your tips. Stop avoiding the question. I'd would still be faithfully serving them but I got fed up with being cheated.  (Jun 29, 2012 | post #15)

Thank you BBB, if justice is served, I can ask for nothing more. I don't know how you know this, but now that you mention this, I think I'll look into it myself.  (Jun 29, 2012 | post #12)

Another note, yeah, evidently you DO care if you had to go say something about it. Try not to contradict yourself.  (Jun 29, 2012 | post #9)

You choose to hide yourself that's fine. And as far as shit talking goes, telling the truth is not talking shit. These people wronged me Martha and yanin and no yanin no longer works there she and I stay in contact. Don't you think it's wrong when that family is stealing tips? The customers were under the impression that they were tipping us for our service because they believed we did a good job. It's pretty screwed up that they didn't know that they were tipping the owners who weren't anywhere to be found. How do you argue against that? Put yourself in my position a the server would you want them taking your hard-earned tips? I have no reason to talk shit, the truth works best.  (Jun 29, 2012 | post #8)

Here's my take, I'm from Bakersfield, but while I was living in Delano I was absolutely miserable and here's why. There are no decent places to shop (a run down jc pennys, goodwill, and kmart as far as known dept stores go. Everything else is locally owned) not even a bookstore barnes and noble and borders are nice decent places. No mall, if you want to buy a computer go somewhere else, want to go out to the movies? NOPE! Want to go for a walk with nice scenery? NOPE! Grocery stores there are overpriced because the owners figure what other choice have people got? Everyone seems to know everyones business, you will see the same faces over and over in public. It feels like you're in a fish bowl. Good luck!  (Jun 28, 2012 | post #28)

I did help wire the credit card machine and the attic was and I'm sure still is full or old rat crap. Tho I never saw rats while I worked there, just the occasional roach.  (Jun 28, 2012 | post #5)

Please do not support these people. As a former employee (Rick obviously) I can tell you that Monica Alfaro and Teresa Viramontes (owners) as well as Lalo Jr (Manager) steal tips from their servers. I've witnessed it and so has Martha and Yanin. As of currently, the three of us no longer work there for that reason. I suspect they restaurant will go down anyway, they can't afford mariachi every Friday and lie to the customers about them being in a convention in Bakersfield. Maybe it's because they took their family on a week vacation to California city to ride their quads, went to Disneyland and California adventure as well as the beach. Financially irresponsible..... It's also pretty screwed up that the younger son Eric is the only family member that is to pay for his food while everyone else eats all day everyday for free. It's really sad because I DO miss my regulars, but I refuse to serve such bad unappreciative people. I think I speaks for itself when 3 people leave so fast obviously something is up. Again, please do not support these people.  (Jun 28, 2012 | post #1)
