Moo Creamery: Homemade Ice Cream & Burgers in Bakersfield

Located in the back of a commercial area of Bakersfield, Moo Creamery is a traditional diner with a gourmet style. Whether it is the peanut butter burger or the whiskey caramel milkshake, you are in for a treat when you stop at this restaurant. They buy their ingredients from local growers, bake their own buns and hand cut their potatoes, all of which make it one of the better road trip stops I have made in a while. Here is all the info.

When you walk into Moo Creamery you will immediately notice the diner vibe in the red backed chairs and the white and black paint style. What sets Moo Creamery apart is all the cows decorating the walls as well and the line of people waiting for a spot.

The menu is massive so give yourself some time to look it over, especially since everything is a la cart, so you will need to order your main dish and your sides. 

The Food

So much of the menu looked fantastic, but here is what we ended up ordering.

Moo Creamery-7

Sweet Potato Fries – Really fresh fries with a marshmallow cinnamon sauce that tastes like thanksgiving, it is so good. The spicy sauce is also fantastic with the fries but this side tastes more like a dessert then an appetizer.

Moo Creamery-5

24 Hour Burger – A good thick cut of meat cooked just like I ordered. The sharp cheddar is a good cheese for this burger as it goes well with the onions and bacon. The egg is the cherry on top with the yolk that runs down the side. It is a messy but great burger.

Moo Creamery-8

Veggie Burger – The quinoa and sweet potatoe patty makes a awesome base for this burger. There are even almonds in the veggie patty which gives it a unique crunch as well. Add to that the avocado, hummus, habenero ketchup and onion sports and you have a super good veggie burger.

Moo Creamery-6

Spicy Garlic Fries – These fries were cooked to perfection with a slight crunch and a heavy garlic that is evened out by the spicyness of the fries. This was my favorite thing other then the hamburger.

Moo Creamery-4

Whiskey Caramel Shake – The milkshake has a heavy whiskey flavor with a sweet caramel to balance it out. The malt taste is light but just enough to add to the shake without overpowering it. The toasted almonds on top add a really good crunch to the shake as well.

We came during lunch time on a weekday and it took a good hour and a half to order, eat, pay and leave. I should have known that coming in, but it was still a pretty long time to wait. If you are stopping on a road trip I would probably call in an order ahead of time, but this place is worth waiting for as it has good, unique food. Let me know what you think of this spot in the comments.
