Zingo's Cafe - A Bako Diner

Our new friend at People's Pizza suggested Zingo's as a place for late night diner fare. Seeing as we needed lunch after moving a trailer full of furniture, it seemed daylight was as good a time as any to check out the place.

Zingo's is about a block away from Christian's new work on Buck Owens Boulevard. That should give you an idea of what to expect right away.  It is all old-school classic car loving trucker serving diner. Inside the black, red, and white decor takes you back to another time. Seating yourself in black vinyl 50s style booths, a waitress with a Southern twang brings you water and asks what you'd like to drink. The menu is simple, greasy, and classic.  While you might want to steer clear of any vegetables on the menu, their fried and grilled items are perfect after a night of partying or a morning of moving couches. The service is prompt and sweet like you'd expect from a diner in a place like Bakersfield.

All in all, it's worth checking out, especially if you enjoy the classic Americana of a good old-fashioned greasy spoon.
