The food is good quality nothing like other buffets the food is so tasty and it is so welcoming
great food great service.
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...
i love diners and this place has all the right diner vibes. nothing fancy, everything yummy. our server was so good to us and extremely nice. it will be a permanent stop for us in Bakersfield. More...

Food, service and atmosphere beautiful and divine! Coffee a liilte weak but delicious and each time my experience has been Glorious.
Really good food. Good service.
My 3rd home away from home and always great and great staff
Delicious food to choose from lots of sweets
They always have good food, and for all you can eat it's at a great price. For 3 adults around 40 bucks, it depends if you have drinks... we did not.
Always a pleasurable relaxed experience.
Greatest country cooking in kern county!! Lots to choose from. Make sure you're hungry!
There potatoes are AMAZING!!
Women aglow is amazing
Always good fresh quality food, we eat here whenever we can and often have birthday dinners and breakfast here.
Great BBQ on Friday. Lots of salad choices too.
Friday night is BBQ night everything is awesome
Excellent food nice service everything so good Love it
Love it just bought this headband for there
Great place to eat
Would like to get my wedding reception here. Great food.
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...
I love dining at Hodel's Country Dining.
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...
Good food (not really vegetarian or vegan entrées though in catering or party scenarios) and pretty good services
I get to eat here a lot since I work nearby. I must say their service is always awesome and they keep the place neat consistently. Pricing is reasonable and they serve generous portions. More...
Always delicious food
Soo many good food
It was my first time visiting Hodel’s and I’ve got to say... it was delicious.. their pork in BBQ was definitely my favorite... the staff were so nice especially Kambrea who was attentive to our needs and helped us check out fast. This place is family oriented and has a great variety of country desserts. More...
Ideal place for buffet-style comfort food. Great place to stop when traveling CA-99!
Great food, super busy but, did not wait more then 10 minutes for Sunday brunch party of 8.
항상 변함없이 신선하게 느껴지는 미국 음식. 부페가격도 결코 비싸지 않고 샐러드 신선하고 육류 음식도 훌륭한 식당입니다. Hwy 99 을 지나는 길이면 꼭 들려보시길 바랍니다. 주차장도 뒤쪽에 더 있습니다. More...
Good Food. And Service
Great food and drinks
MARIA JOSE GALVEZ MADRID
Muy rica la comida , sobre todo los desayunos
I had fun dining in hodels it's a good place to gather up with the brothers and sisters to spend a good time ☺️I loved their red velvet cupcake yummy !!
Good food reasonable price
Was there on Saturday for an anniversary dinner food was great as always
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...
This is my favorite buffet restaurant in Bakersfield. Wide selection of good buffet entrees At reasonable price.Dinner is only $12.95 for adults. The waiters are attentive. The restaurant is clean and has the old country vibes. I will definitely comeback here! More...
I've been enjoying their food since I was a little girl
Linda Marie Davis
I love their fried chicken & their bread pudding!! So good!!!
Was great my mom and dad go there
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...
Very Nice place to eat food is Delicious.
Run of the mill buffet.
It's pretty much fried food Mac and cheese and unhealthy dessert but hell it's pretty dang good.
Best buffet in Bakersfield! Don't matter if your getting breakfast, lunch or dinner your can't go wrong! Food if always hot fresh ands tasty!
Kathy Godoy Trujillo
Super yummy and hot food desert a variety so yummy
This was my mother's favorite restaurant in town. I used to take her here on Sunday mornings for their brunch. The tri-tip is top-notch. The cinnamon rolls are fantastic. The salad bar is always really fresh with lots of options. It's all-you-can-eat so the prices are not bad at all. The staff is fantastic. More...
Jean B Pierce
Their Food is yummy.
Very nice buffet great staff
Simple foods and 1980s buffets style on the cheap. Great price point for all the food choices!
My family and I love this place we've been coming here for years the food is always good I like the Friday barbecue the selection of brisket and all the other meats are delicious I have no complaints every time I come here for breakfast lunch or dinner and the food is always fantastic
Food is delicious. Very clean and organized. I would give it 5 stars if they had more of a variety of foods. Seems like half the food is salad and fruits rather than actual fulfilling foods
Attended a family reunion and enjoyed the food
Sherman G. Tatum
just a wonderful place to take your friends and family to eat
I was in town for a short time. This place is a must stop when in Bakersfield. The food and service are the best. Added bonus I was able to get a pan of cinnamon rolls to go.
Good food friendly workers
1st time here, awesome food and gorgeous establishment
It was good
ME GUSTA ESTE LUGAR LA COMIDA MUY SABROSA Y LAS MESERAS MUY AMABLES Y RECOMIENDO QUE MARIA RAMIREZ TE PREPARE TU OMELETE
Took the family there and they never disappoint! The only thing is that their service was a little slow. Other than that I was very happy! My kids love it!!!
Nice place with great service
Food was delicious and the restaurant is always clean i prefer hodels over home town buffet
They have great food, wonderful staff, and I absolutely love love love their seafood salad. Great place to go hang out with family and friends and enjoy a really good meal
Food is delicious, personnel very humble they privide a great service, thank Hodel' s restaurant for the service crew they deserve a raise and or be promoted for they represented the Hodel's firm in a oustanding performance
The food was hot, fresh and the salad variety was impressive. Deserts were great!
Family members birthday party in banquet room. Clean inside and out. There was a rice dish, chicken and another meat. I had a salad with lettuce, tomato, grapes, cantaloupe, with ice tea.
The fried chicken is the best
Yes this place is so amazing the FOOD and the SERVERS are so sweet !!! OMG I recommend this place for every occasions
Wonderful food and pleasant and helpful staff. Easy on and off the 99 freeway. Plenty of food choices at reasonable prices.
Always good, buffet style food and friendly service. Serving area is continually keep clean. Kitchen/food area staff always keeps an eye on things and when anything starts to run low, it is quickly replenished.
Great buffet. Has plenty of several things you'll like. The salad bar selections are awesome. I plan to go back many times while I'm here.
So many delicious foods to choose from, the buffet is awesome!
My respect with their service, attention and food as well as desserts! Everything was delicious and satisfying!
Great food at a great price.
GOOD BREAKFAST MORNING. MY B DAY COMING UP
My roast beef French dip, was actually stuffed with roast beef
Another Bakersfield gem. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, worth the price. Say hi to Don tell him " I " sent you.
We always love the food here. Great variety.
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. (no snide remarks.. post bypass people do go out to eat with non-bypass people who want to enjoy this type of food). More...
Rosa V H.
I'm not exactly sure why but this is my favorite buffet place. The food is always fresh. The sweets are always the best! The feel of the restaurant is like going to a grandma's house. I love it More...

Juan Carlos De Los Rios
Nice area, considering overall location, clean environment with friendly and attentive staff. I was there for a meeting and enjoyed the breakfast buffett. The food was well cooked, hot and prepared just right. Sweets were readily available to go with the FANTASTIC coffee. After breakfast, they laid out fruit for the duration. The experience was good.

Good price. Better atmosphere than a normal buffet. Eating here feels like a restaurant, not a cattle line. The cobbler with real whip cream is supper tastey.
Excellent.. Great Service..

Good food. Was there for a large, catered event. Service was attentive and food tasty.

Friendly service quite relaxing, great eater your hang out
Love the food.
Delicious as always
Monroe J Lawrence Yohey
I enjoyed the place with latge salad bar and buffet with freshly smoked bbq. The food was good and price extremely reasonable at just over $10 a person in 2019 Californis is unherad of. 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...
Excellent service. Great food. I took my family and everyone really enjoyed themselves. The service was excellent as well.
Great food and comfortable
The food good
Delicious food, great accommodations and very nice people.
Excellent Sunday buffet experience. Food was delicious and the service was perfect. We especially enjoyed the egg casserole, ham, cinnamon rolls, and pecan rolls. Highly recommend!

Danny Ray Alverson Sr
Great food and atmosphere
Sunday Brunch is theeee best!!! Veggie omelet with jalapeños!!! Yummm
Great dinner selection every time, fresh salad and lots of selections best is the price for lunch and dinner Deserts are good too and servers all friendly
really good food great service like Molly Brown's and Hometown Buffett had a baby and named it Hodels.
Fresh food. Good service . No dishes lol
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...
Yum yum yum chicken yum sticky bun a must
Great food; excellent prices.
Good food tri tip the buffet
Ever since I can remember my family has gone here on occasion for Sunday brunch. The food is great and there are plenty of options for vegetarians. My favorites are the Belgium waffles, the spiced hot apples and the cinnamon rolls. This place gets really busy but we've never had to wait too long. We try to arrive before the crowd. More...
Great prices And food! My parents always want to come here when they are in town and my mom is super picky!
Excellent! Only buffet I'll eat at in town. Breakfast, lunch or dinner it's all amazing food, great service and way too inexpensive for all the food you get.
Food was delicious. Waitress very polite and always asking us if we needed anything. Can’t wait to go again
I like the breakfast buffet, the coffee is just right
Family place good fellowship
Good service friendly staff and great food
Very good food love it
Too cold in the room we were in, asked if they could lower the air conditioning. It finally was a little warmer when we left.
We had a breakfast buffet in the detached banquet hall. Food was plentiful and we'll prepared.
Such a blessing of a place to eat with lovely food and people.
The service was excellent! The omelet was very well prepared. The sliced ham was delicious. The cinnamon rolls and the sweet with walnuts on it was very good. Delicious coffee. Overall a very pleasant experience. More...
Very good as always
Great food, great staff
Great place for brunch
Wonderful service, awesome food and great place for banquets.
Absolutely delicious. Variety of homemade foods including veggies, salads, and desserts. There's a tiny boutique of country gifts for purchase. Worth the drive.
I've been a fan of this place since I was a little girl. The food is never disappointing my family and i love the hospitality. The banquets are always lovely. The waffles are my favorite alongside the omletes cant get an omlete like theirs anywhere else. More...
Good service great food reasonably preiced3
Excellent! If you are looking for a nice place to eat, then this restaurant is a must do.Amazing buffet for only 13$.Amazing staff. Nothing to say - perfect!
Family tradition been going here with my family since I was a small child I consider it to be a historical landmark I'm a proud supporter of local Bakersfield businesses and it warms my heart to see Hodels thriving and packed with people the food is delicious and there is a wide variety of country favorites and an amazing desert bar and great service with a since of humor and they have multipurpose room for various social events we recently had my Dads memorial service there it was beautiful
GREAT SERVICE AND GREAT STAFF&FAMILY
Great food and service.

Good food, good prices and friendly service
Couldnt be Better
Excellent food, excellent service!!!
Hodels has consistantly provided an amazing buffet over the decades they have been open. Hadent been there in years and our last visit was very satisfying. The food is excellent. They are always replenishing items and the staff if very good as well. If you havent been in a while, make a loint of going. You wont be disappointed. Fyi it can get pretty busy at Sunday lunch time. More...
Great food and wonderful Service!
Delicious home cooked meals. Peaceful atmosphere. We always make it a point to eat here when we are driving through the area.
Muy byena comida americana me gusta el lugar
Always good and the Right price.
The best place to eat Good down home food!! Everything they make here is VERY VERY Good!
This is a comfortable place to take the family. Wonderful food and plenty to chose from.
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...
Good buffet great service
Bobby Ray Reavis
Awesome Food and Service. Great buffet. Beats all the chain buffets
private function rooms & good food for everyone!
I suggest Tuesday Friday Sunday other days its enter at your own risk.
Got there about two, it was not packed. Had a friend come into town and she asked me to take her here again. The place has an awesome feel to it. Feels similar to a restaurant in New York I loved. More...
Don't worry if it's busy, it is worth the wait. Looking forward to returning with my friends. The bill was good for how much you get. Food is like a restaurant in Louisville I loved. More...
Went to a Jr High honor banquet there, the food was excellent as always! Thanks Hodels! Love your salads, rice, green beans, and dessert! The presentation and selection of food is great, even at the larger events. Service was excellent too. More...
Rynette Patalsky Rideaux
really great food. great service and cozy atmosphere
Great place for family, business and fun occasions. Kind, friendly and helpful staff!!!
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...
They have great joic of food
Delicioso, sabroso,el mejor sabor en todo Kern county.
Really nice place to eat. I only gave four stars because it only had pork for the meats. I don't eat pork. Bathroom was very clean, way to go! Waitresses were wonderful, polite and keep our coffee cups topped off. Loved the omelet station the young lady cooking was quick and on point. We will be back when we come and visit my sister. More...
Great food! No long wait at least when we went for dinner. Plenty to choose from. I had fried chicken, rice, dinner rolls, deep pit. So much good food!
Friendly clean very busy great food I got deep pit it was good lots of selections of desserts! Had a very nice visit to Hodels with my friend Linda!
Very friendly service
Great food and service. Good traditional American food
It has great customer service and just overall great food. And cupcakes
Love the variety of food and reasonable price.
There was no experience.
Eric Javier Perez
Great food and amazing service as always
Quality is uniform from one visit to the next, month in and month out. Service is friendly and helpful always. This is a great place for the family to gather.
Always great here. Never disappointed
The food here is so good you can serve yourself and the workers are so nice even tho it was my first time going I would say it was a five star
Great staff and food. Never disappointed
Went for the breakfast buffet this morning. $10.30 per adult, but man was the food delicious! Omelette bar was amazing, came out perfect. The biscuits and gravy are super delicious, and the bacon is perfectly salty and crispy. The waffles were also perfectly cooked. More...
This is THE BEST PLACE EVER! THE WAITRESS ARE KIND ....ESPECIALLY THE OWNERS..❤ GOD BLESS YOU!
Perfect location and great food for reasonable prices.
Always love Hodels...great people! Hosts are warm and it just feels relaxed and homey. Suggest the rethink the paper towel holder in the woman's restroom. Needs a motion paper towel holder.... More...
Stout breakfast for the price. Their bacon is good.
This place has been here for decades that definitely says a lot. They have a great selection of food and always fresh. Very friendly staff as well. Best buffet around.
Great staff. Food and prices and the contribution to the community
Great food, great service, clean
For all those Sunday brunchies, they have waffles all days.We drive 2 hours to visit... Bone appetit.
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...
Phillipe C Lewis
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...
Great service good breakfast
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is great. Just depends on what your in the mood for.
My favorite place for breakfast in the Central Valley. Place is amazing.
The fried chicken was really good.
Is pretty good restaurant
We went here for Thanksgiving 2017. This restaurant has served awesome, comfort food for over 40 years in North Bakersfield. It is all hand made, it is a buffet style dining. Great family restaurant with great food. More...
Hard to find parking.. but a ton of food.. some good desserts.. typical buffet fare.. most people liked the deep pit beef.. super busy..

If you come to Bakersfield and you haven't been to Hodels then you can't say you've really been to Bakersfield. Best place to eat down home cooked meals. Fresh food, friendly staff, and very anxious to meet your needs. They have the best salad bar. Fresh fruits and veggies. Sunday Brunch is amazing. And kid friendly! Bring the family. You'll love it!

Great food , great price & great service. Definitely get your money's worth.
Love the food, staff, and atmosphere.
The food is always fresh...
Est place to have brakefast 100% good
Honestly, I was skeptical about this place. Sometimes nostalgia taints the true standards of the food. Especially since this is a major long term institution in Bakersfield. That said the service was good, the food was great, and the price was even better. I can see why it is so popular and cant wait to go back again. More...
Good food, friendly smile
Always give me the runs. But great tasting food.
Cool location to meet with coworkers. I will probably become a regular.
The place has an awesome atmosphere. If it wasn't far from my work I would come by 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...
Really appreciate Hodels supporting local athletes and hosting the Jockey Club awards. Their staff is very friendly.
Simple but good ! When you want something filling and always good great service
Outstanding food, great service ....will not be disappointed.

Un lugar muy agradable y sobretodo la comida tiene un gran sazón. Se los recomiendo. Ademas, el precio el accesible.
I love the bacon!!!!!
we were here 4 an Awesome breakfast buffet!
I'm going to give a 5 star because I love Hodel's Sunday brunch and their prices. They have an omelette station, chocolate fountain and a delicous chile relleno casserole. You have to try the heart waffles with strawberries and whip cream. Orange juice is included aswell. More...
12.00 dollars per person all you can eat great food won't leave hungry.

Great buffet place for breakfast.
Went to Hodels for a family celebration. The service was excellent, atmosphere: friendly, hospitable and relaxed. The food was delicious except I do wish they had more gluten free items especially desserts.
Great buffet and one of the best in town. Food is great tasting and have all the veggies I want with the great tasting meaty meat that I desire! Flavor is better than any buffet and I never feel nasty after here like when eating at other buffets. Always delicious! More...

Good place to eat but the carpet needs to go
Very nice place. We had breakfast. The omelette and pancake bar was nice and the staff were friendly. The assortment of cupcakes were great as well.
Good buffet restaurant reasonably priced. Great selection of foods The dessert bar also had many yummy selections. Friendly staff large dining rooms great for large groups. We really enjoyed ourselves.
Love eating breakfast at Hodels. Beat place in Bakersfield.
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...
Had a great dinner thank god for it
