The 58 Diner & Bar
The 58 003_thumb.jpg

New owners of “The 58 Diner and Off Ramp Bar” located on Steuber Road are Marshall McCullough and Gonzalo Higareda.  McCullough, Manager/Partner has 22 years of restaurant/bar experience and Higareda, Head Chef/Partner has 25 years of experience as a chef.

Gonzalo and Marshall seized the opportunity to open up the closed Cattleman’s restaurant when Love’s Travel Center was built.  The presence of Love’s Travel Center, corresponding traffic and exposure in combination with the restaurants close proximity to the La Quinta Hotel made the location much more viable then it might otherwise be.  Additionally, many of their patrons are guests at the La Quinta Hotel and are employed by the wind and solar energy industries.

Marshall stated City staff was wonderful to work with and made it easier for them to open their doors.  Particularly in comparison to other communities he has dealt with under similar circumstances.  Marshall commented that the City Manager has done a good job in hiring and retaining employees that care about their job and their community.

The atmosphere of the restaurant/bar brings you back to the 1950’s.  The staff treats every customer like they were in their own home.  You can go have an adult beverage in the bar and feel the same way.  The portions are large and the food is good.  Their specialty is Country Fried Steak and the menu will include weekly specials.

“The 58” is coordinating with the La Quinta Hotel in providing room service making the La Quinta the only hotel in Tehachapi that can offer this service.

The former conventional Chevron station, soon to reopen as The Barn on the north side of the restaurant will bring more customers towards the west part of the off ramp.  Marshall indicated they will coordinate their efforts and look for opportunities to work together and compliment one another, much like he is with the Hotel.  Marshall stated that The 58 has a great relationship with their neighbors the La Qunita Hotel and The Barn.
