Love this place. True it is very small but that's part of the whole "thing". The guacamole is super fresh and delicious. Margaritas fresh and refreshing. I like to start with the guac and then have a few tacos. Love the steak one and the shrimp one as well. It may not seem like a lot of food but it's... More

Very small location. We walked in at exactly 6 PM with 4 of us at just the right time to be seated at a table. I think it would be hard for this restaurant to accommodate a party larger than 6 people. We had mixed feelings about the food. Fresh chips & salsa were good, Queso app was yummy, but... More

After finally getting to try this place that often has a line out the door at peak dining times, our party of 4 was underwhelmed. The servers are all great, good drinks, music is loud and fun and it has a cool 20-something's vibe but the food was only borderline adequate. I had the pulled pork and tuna tacos. My... More

We went to Bodega's for lunch since we wanted to try it having spent many a meal at its sister restaurant in Norwalk - Valencia's. I had the Baja / panko crusted mahi mahi, pico de gallo, lemon aioli and Cochinita Pibil / slow cooked pork, refried beans, pickled red onion, cilantro tacos. I loved the fish taco but the... More

My husband and I have been here numerous times and we love it. Whenever friends come to visit we always take them here. It is small and gets crowded but the food and atmosphere are amazing. A lot of people bring their kids, so they take up the few larger tables. Get there early or prepare to wait, it is... More

Bodega Taco Bar has a wonderful menu, very creative. Space in very small and seating limited but stylish and well designed. Not a great romantic date kind of place since it is pretty tight and loud. But the food is worth it. Try it on a weekday night or lunch. My personal favorites are the Brussels Sprouts or the Cuban... More

I would have given Bodega an "excellent" except that it is a bit too noisy, and there is a need for better air circulation/ventilation - we left smelling faintly of our meal. One of today's specials - duck taco - was outstanding. Highly recommend the blistered brussels sprouts.

It's tight, it's loud and it's not a great place for kids - and we love it! Amazing margaritas! Great dishes and the most awesome brussel sprouts - who knew! Squeeze in and enjoy the people. We have heard complaints about the service and hostess but have never had any problem.

Great innovative food and THE BEST margarita in fairfield ( no bottled sour mix) , only fresh ingredients, my only complaint is that it's too small, end up going at 5:30 just to be guaranteed A table! Lol. Would love for them to move to a larger location. Been a number of times, and food has ALWAYS been delicious, whether... More

Hubby and I love our neighborhood taco shack! For me, especially if hungry for a ladies lunch that welcomes in the weekend or celebrates a days hard work, I love singling (is that a word?) up to the bar. I always ask for the Bodega Margarita with the slightest bit of agave and extra, extra lime. Bartenders have always been... More
