This restaurant closed July 21, 2017. Do not understand August review. They could not have eaten in a closed restaurant. Description is not accurate. There were never picnic tables at Kelcys and when they were open they had a large parking lot.

Stopped by here on my way through Tehachapi. This restaurant is in the old historic portion of Tehachapi in an old historic building so the decor/furnishings may not be what some might like but it is a clean establishment with very friendly and efficient service....More

Visited and took pics of pics on walls. This place has been in Tehachapi and family owned for many years. Still styled like a 1950s diner. Wonder pictures and artifacts on walls displaying the history of the town. Worth a stop in when passing through...More
