I love love love Bodega. It is my happy place! The food is so delicious and the flavor combinations are out of this world. It can get crowded but the people who are willing to wait know what they are waiting for!! Flavortown!

When I want to have a quick and seriously tasty lunch I drop in to Bodega. I can even eat alone and sit at the corner of the bar and order fast. I usually have 3 tacos with fish, shrimp or one of the specials. It is noisy at mealtimes but mid afternoon the restaurant has a pleasant hum. The... More

Authentic, unique, fresh. Good food and great atmosphere. Drinks are outstanding. Brussel sprouts are the best side dish I've ever had at any restaurant. So go stuff yourself with a fried chimichanga at some run of the mill Mexican joint. Or come here for the real deal.

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
