Food and service average

The hype was that just hype. The food was not spectacular nor was the wait staff. Very crowded with above average wait time.

I was in Midland for the first time in many years. I asked at the hotel where the best Mexican food place was and they suggested La Bodega. They said to ask for the chili rellenos. I did and they were fantastic. Meat in a chili pepper covered with a sweet sauce with raisins and pecans on top. These were... More

Have been dining here for over 20 years. Most wait staff are long time employees who value your patronage. Always there to fill your glass or bring fresh chips. Nachos are great for lunch,or for hungry appetite the chili Rellanos are fantastic.

Of course on our first night in West Texas we went looking for some authentic Mexican food. One of our employees suggested La Bodega and man, he was right on the money! We have been back twice already! All of the food is wonderful but the highlight for me are the shrimp stuffed jalapenos. They are well worth the price... More

I don't know why this place is still in business. The drinks are watered down, the food is terrible. Maybe it is just me but I just can not see why people eat here.

Very average food and service. I really liked that the sangria was not very sweet. I would probably come back again. Chicken enchiladas were very good.

I thought the service might pick up with new ownership but can tell no difference. I ate there this past Monday for the last time in my life after frequenting La bodega since it opened. The crowning blow was when I was in the bar having dinner. On the flat screen, was the goriest movie I have ever seen. Kinda... More

If there was a star lower than 1 star, this restaurant would be rated that. The past couple of times I've had dinner/drinks here, the management/service was below average. With the exception of 1 waitress, every cleaning/serving staff member was lower than competent. Not to mention, the most current management is a joke. Don't even think about ordering a patron...
