we'll go again

We went for the 1st time a few weeks ago & we'll go again. It was crowded but the staff handled it well & all went smoothly. The guacamole was excellent as were the tacos. We loved the corn slaw. There's plenty of parking both in front & in the rear. It's a good alternative for a casual meal... read more

I went to dinner with 3 other people, we ordered guacamole which came promptly. We all placed orders for our food and sat around the table and talked. We are a very laid back people, and sort of noticed it was taking a longer time than usual for our food, but didn't think too much of it. In fact, we... More

Went here when it first opened up and thought it was "OK", so I decided that we wouldn't return for awhile to see if we thought any more of it on a return visit. Went over the weekend when it was early so that it wouldn't be a mob scene and we would get a true feel of the quality.... More

Small little corner place with a BIG clientele! And reason why tasty food, great service, and feels like a good local hangout. I do find the prices are medium to expensive yet it is Fairfield, CT in Fairfield County so that is par for the course(s)! For me, the menu has great choices so don't want to pick just one... More

I honestly really love Bodega. I come here very frequently and enjoy everything I have had. The vibe is very cool in the restaurant, it's small but intimate and almost makes you feel as though you are on a cool vacation. The bartenders and staff are fantastic and if you sit at the bar towards the kitchen you can watch... More

Have been here several times. The food is delicious. I titled this authentic mexican, but have never been to Mexico so perhaps not the best title, but what I mean is there is more on the menu than cheese enchiladas and beef tacos. The chips are homemade and addicting. Each meal I have had is delicious, including brunch. Many different... More

Interesting menu in a small busy space. Try going for lunch or late afternoon - then the place is quieter and you can really enjoy the good food and maybe even get a seat at the bar. When it is busy it is REALLY busy but some people like that.
