I have had many delicious dishes at this awesome place from the tri tip wrap to the Cali cheesesteak sandwich and the cooked chicken diablo everything has been a homerun. I have recommended this place to all my friends and they have said the same thing it's delicious I highly recommend you stop by and try it for yourself. You'll love it.

Cooked Chicken Diablo

I ordered a tomahawk steak for Valentine's Day. When me and my girl arrived we were greeted very pleasantly and while we waited they offered us a Free order of chicken diablo. I found them delicious. I'm normally wouldn't order an item like the chicken diablo but they were so good I will definitely be back for more. We received our steak and it was cooked to perfection. All the staff working were extremely helpful and commented on how it was nice to witness our Valentines dinner. It was a great experience and will returns again and again

Ribs Full Rack

This is the absolute best place in town for bbq. The ribs are tender but keep their texture- they don't turn into pulled beef the moment you take a bite. The smoked chicken is amazing and has just the right amount of smokiness. The tri-tip is one of my favorites and makes an excellent sandwich. I like all of the sides, I only wish they had fried okra.

Daily Lunch Special

I've tried ALL of Primetime's Daily Lunch special every day of the week. Pulled Pork Sandwich is my absolute favorite. 2nd is J'Lo's Pastrami and the Diablos. The ribs are off the hook and let's just say I haven't had a bad dish!

Pint of Mac'n'Cheese

Today I had a tomahawk steak cooked to my liking and it was superb. The meat was tender and juicy. I had my steak with a pint size of Mac n cheese and it was the perfect addition to my meal. I will bringing my girlfriend for Valentine's Day so we can both have one each of these amazing steaks. Highly recommended.

BBQ Combo Plate #1

The tri tip was delicious and the chicken was juicy. I enjoyed the chili beans and salad. I used my roll to make a slider with the two meats and it was perfection. I'll definitely be back to try different menu items. Id also like to say that the staff was friendly and provided excellent service.

BBQ Tri Tip Sandwich

When I go places in town that has a tri tip sandwich that's what I order. First time at prime time that's what I ordered and now that's the only place I go when I'm craving one. People don't tell me they're hungry but I recommend it any way. They're generous on the meat which is what you DONT find at other places. They just want to skimp you, not here. Sauce is great on top or they have salsa. Love the fries they're unique cut whole potato, crunchy. Love this place

I judge bbq for the Kansas City Barbecue Society around the country. These were some of the best pork ribs I have had. I would get them a 9+ rating. Great job. I would recommended Prime Time BBQ to the Bakersfield BBQ lovers. Tuesday, is the day they have the pork ribs on special.Great BBQ sauce as well.

The cheeseburgers at Prime Time BBQ are amazing! You can tell the beef is high quality mea. They're always juicy and cooked perfectly! The buns are fresh and it's more than enough to feed a big appetite. My office eats here about once a week and we've never ordered anything that wasn't absolutely delicious.

Deep Pit Sandwich

Hands down the best deep pit sandwich. It was my first visit, and wasn't expecting to like it so much. Prime Time's deep pit sandwich is full of flavor, and most importantly, not greasy!

Mac 'N Cheese Burger

I had been hearing about PTBBQ for awhile and on Friday I was able to try the Mac n Cheese burger. Can I just say it was absolutely amazing! The bun was perfect, the patty was juicy and the Mac n cheese was oh so yummy! I'll be back for it again and have already told my friends and family about PTBBQ. Also I must say the staff was extremely nice and provided me with wonder service.

1/2lb BBQ Tri Tip

I have had most of what Prime Time smokes/roasts and all of it is fantastic! We have had them cater two of our corporate events for 40-60 people, the food and service is second to none. I would highly recommend for a simple lunch or catered event!

Tri Tip Plate

My husband and I enjoyed a couple of scrumptious trip-tip sandwiches on our way to the Fox Theater. The meat was perfectly prepared with just the right amount of seasonings. We sampled the sandwiches with the awesome BBQ sauce as well as the salsa - both worth trying. We have used Prime Time for catering events and everyone raves about the meat - tri-tip and chicken. Try it - you'll love it!

BBQ Tri Tip Whole

I love the bbq tri-tip plate. It comes with big slices of tri-tip and they arent stingy with their meat either just an FYI and 2 sides.The chili beans have sausage in it which taste amazing. The potato salad is good. I wish I knew how to make it. I never share my plate so my husband gets his own and I refer anyone to come here 1st when it comes to Bbq:)

1/2lb BBQ Tri Tip

Honestly it doesn't matter what you order here because absolutetly everything they make is delicious. I love this place. Their food is the bomb. I eat their diablos, steaks, chicken, and avocado mojos.The steaks and chicken are always well seasoned and cooked to perfection. And their sides always taste homemade. This is what bbq should taste like.

Pint of Mac'n'Cheese

When I first tried PrimeTime's Hot Link Mac & Cheese I was obsessed with it! I went back 2-3 times a week just for that. Since then I've noticed that you can't go wrong with anything on their menu...and you won't find anything like it anywhere else in Bakersfield. The flavors are incredible! I can bring something back to work on my lunch break and share a bite with a co-worker and they are immediately hooked! Not one day goes by that someone won't come in with something from PrimeTime. They love the food and the staff is so welcoming and helpful. (Five out of five stars...Would continue to recommend to a friend)
