I tried this restaurant for the first time today and I've never had a better breakfast! All of the food is savory and sweet :) I've been to many great restaurants around the country and this is by far the best , I love the food and flavor. The service is amazing every few minutes a waitress walks by your table to see how your doing  I rate this 10/10 and definitely reccomend this restaurant!! More...

Where I do begin with Hodel's? My family and I have been coming here for over 15 years and it stands as a testament to time as it's been around for over 50 years. It's a tradition for my family and I to come here so a lot of the staff already knows us by name! The staff is always friendly here and there is great service and the restaurant is always clean! Now, onto the reason why anyone goes to this place: the food! It's no surprise that this place has won best buffet in Kern County for many consecutive years and the bottom line is that food is just fantastic! I'll start with arguably their most famous two things: the fried chicken and the cinnamon rolls. For the price, you really can't beat the fried chicken here. It's always succulent and just oh so crispy! There have been occasions where it's a little salty, but it's always so flavorful. Oh and the cinnamon rolls are just amazing here! So decadent and rich! I will also say that their omelettes on Sunday are the reason why people come here on that day! I'm going to go on a limb and say that they serve the best omelettes in town! Soooo good! Oh, and the fact that their salsas actually taste like something my mom would make (my family is from Mexico) is a compliment! I will also add that their bacon is just so thick and crispy and one of the best I have ever had! I also truly enjoy their Chile verde (yes, it's surprisingly good) and their Chile relleno casserole during breakfast! Soo good! I will continue by saying that their BBQ night on Friday nights is hands-down the best BBQ in town for the price. For $12.95 and all-you-can-eat? Yes, please! They have great brisket, pulled pork, sausage, and tri-tip! Oh and their Texas toast is also great! I will continue by adding that they have some of the best soups in town as well. I particularly love their tomato zucchini and navy bean soups. They are so, so good! I will also add that they have some of the best iced tea in town and is always brewed fresh and taste so refreshing! I could go on and on and about more food items, but I think you're all getting the picture! I will end this review by saying the Hodel's is not only a part of my family traditions, but a HUGE part of Bakersfield. It's an institution that has stood the test of time and I hope it will continue to do so! For the money, you really can't beat Hodel's. Sure, you can spend $50 in Vegas at a fancy buffet, but for the price and quality here at Hodel's ($12.95 for an adult dinner), you can't go wrong. One of my favorite restaurants of all time and the best buffet in Bakersfield-- no one else even comes close! My highest recommendation! More...

The first time going to a restaurant can make it or break it for someone. For me, hodels definetly made it. The prices are very resonable and the quality of the food amazing and the meat is very delicious. I had the tri tip, rib, and fried chicken and i must say i always expect the meat to be dry but this was so flavorful and moist it seemed like it was just prepared (which it probably was) the seating was very tasteful and country like as well as comfortable. The one thing i did nit have the tast for was the macoroni and cheese as well as the alfredo however i do believe it was because it had a taste of onion and im not a big fan of onion. The deserts were nicely place in their own area and each one had its colorful flavor but by the end of the night proved to be a little too sweet for me. Overall i would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a nice night out. And if you havent tried hodels yet don't wait any longer! More...

This was a private event. The food was very good.They had 3 buffet lines setup serving from both sides. That made the lines move quickly and they kept the food replenished. My only complaint would be that the Women's Bathroom hadn't been cleaned or replenished. One stall was Out of Order and 2 stalls had No Toilet Paper, that left only 3 stalls to service all of the women that attended the dinner. More...

Best buffet around! Worth the drive to the other side of town. Homemade everything, home town cooking. Fried chicken, fresh mashed potatoes and gravy, chicken pot pie, roast beef, and a massive salad bar. This last visit, we went at lunch time and I found out that you can get soup and salad for lunch if you dont want an entire buffet! Bonus! I've been on the look out for a salad bar that doesn't feel like an open the box and dump it into a bowl place, you know the kind that just sells ready made junk. Hodels makes homemade potato salads and macaroni salad and I will be going back just to eat that for lunch! Happy day! More...

The service was great and the price of $13.95 per person (drink extra) was well worth it. They even give you a 20% discount on the regular meal price if you have had gastric bypass surgery.

The one issue is their exhaust fans were not working and it was very smoky inside. The waiter apologized so no big deal. It was busy and 15 minute wait to get table but that is less or same as waiting for food to be cooked someplace else. I would go back. More...

Just had my first visit here at Hodel's and I should say I was surprised at how good it was. I had just read some negative reviews here on yelp and didn't expect much. I'm a truck driver for many years and kind of a foodie to boot.  I eat fast food, restaurant food and many buffets all over this state and many others. This buffet rates with the best of the buffets in the country. There was lots of selections like 5 or 6 meats including bbq pork ribs. The salads were plentiful and varied. Of special note were the desserts. Everything was homemade and obviously they have a very competent baker on staff. Overall the preparation of the dishes was special and very high quality. I can't say anything negative about this place. More...

I haven't ever been to hodels but I was in the parking lot and it won't get off my places visited so I'm basing this off the outside. It was a decent sized lot and it was asthedically appealing. It was clearly a nicer establishment then other buildings in the same general vicinity. More...

Hodel's is an institution in Bakersfield. Situated off Olive Drive just west of Hwy 99, it is a popular home style, all you can eat, family buffet of basic home cooking. They have an excellent salad bar, hand carved meats, regular prepared meets and vegetables and bountiful desserts. There is plenty of parking and the place does get busy during lunch and dinner hours. This is a "dry house" with no alcoholic beverages of any kind sold on the premises. Great place to bring friends and family for a basic home-cooked meal! More...

Okay, I am not a buffet fan for many reasons: overeating, wasting food, and mostly because it tends to be tasteless and is made more for the quantity. However, we decided to try it for breakfast and without overduing it, I got eggs from the omelette bar and a waffle because everybody kept going up for the waffles. I have to say, those little heart shaped waffles are awesome! I throw a little syrup with some nuts on top and it is better than any I can order from other sit down restuarants. We decided to try it for lunch and oh my goodness, the fried chicken was awesome and perfect! Who would think?! I'm rating the food average only because others might think this is a specialty food & restaurant and it is not. More...

The food was amazing, but what made this visit truly special was the service! Yadi (I hope I spelled that correctly) was so welcome; even when they were 10 minutes from closing. The staff kept the entire buffet open to keep going back for food instead of closing the buffets lines so they can get ready to go home! This is what brings people back, and then offering amazing food! This is truly a hidden gem! Thank you Yadi and your other amazing team! More...

This was my first time at Hodel's while on a roadtrip to Sacramento. I did not expect a buffet, let alone one for less than $12, drinks included. From the creme fraiche for the belgian waffles (as well as the waffles and toppings- all fresh) to the made-to-order omlette bar to fresh biscuits, jams, thick cut bacon, sausage, potatoes, cupcakes, fruit, cinnamon rolls, and more. Everything is delicious and, again, fresh. The quality for the price is outrageously good. I intend to return to try out the Lunch amd Dinner buffets, which I am told are both under $13 without drinks. If you find yourself in the North Bakersfield area, definitely stop by and treat you and yours to a delicious meal. Will definitely return. More...

I came here for a Repass and they seated us in the harvest room. Upon entering the building I checked out the bathroom and it smelled great and looked even better, everything was clean. The buffet itself was nicely situated, there was a nice amount of space between each food bar. The food was good tasting and the salad and toppings were fresh. The table service was excellent, the people were available if you needed them, they were attentive without suffocating you and they asked sometimes before taking a plate away. Now the dessert bar could have been better, the cookies were a bit too doughy and the red velvet cupcakes were not up to par. There was a copious amount of desserts to choose from and the ice cream was delicious. I walked out feeling happy and full. More...
