My family ate there the other night. We love good Mexican food and believed the false advertising the web site has. The restaurant is seriously in need of a redecoration and the food was just plain awful! It was not fresh, and it was so greasy my children got sick from it. The chips and salsa were good but everything... More

We needed a place to stop for lunch and noticed quite a few cars at the La Bodega restaurant so we stopped in. The restaurant seems clean and well kept. Service was good. Food was average. We could not figure out why there were so many cars there. It must be a local favorite. I think I will go to... More

Service was very slow and were ignored for about 15 minutes after we were seated. The fajitas were ok but more fillers of tomatoes and peppers than chicken. The enchiladas were decent but not worth the wait. Probably won' t be back for awhile.

Just a typical hole in the wall mexican place. Not great but better than some places. Service is decent for Midland, have to check out at the register though which I don't like. Not a nice restaurant by any means, run down, old but food is passable.

We had dinner at La Bodega on the Friday before Mother's Day this year. We were in town visiting our daughter. The restaurant was an old favorite from the 80's when we lived in Midland. The stuffed peppers were cold with the cheese inside not melted. The chili relleno batter tasted like it had been cooked much earlier and held... More

I've eaten here since it opened in 1972. I love their cheeseburgers, mario burritos, taco salad, bean rueda, and especial plate and lately it seems that dinner is staffed with different people than lunch. The servers are inattentive and make mistakes (or the kitchen does). My most recent experience had both our dishes messed up and the waitress going back... More

Excellent food and some unique dishes. The fajitas are very good with the chili rellano being the signature dish. Overall, it is the best Midland has to offer for Mexican food, so it is pretty good. It is geared toward upper scale customers rather than the folks who like the hole in the wall Mexican places. I eat here often... More

By far, the most exciting chile rellano I have ever eaten. Being from way out of town, I have only eaten at the restaurant twice, and both time have had the dish. It's been over a year now since I last visited, and I still think (dream) about that chile rellano. There is certainly a Mediterranean influence that is golden.... More

The shrimp stuffed chile relleno was excellent. The queso com crane was good as was the steak. The service was delightful and it was imperative to the server we enjoyed our meal.

I don't eat here often, but the food is always pretty good, so I don't know why not. They used to have a great bowl of chili, maybe it's just too early for cooking a big pot of chili, I hope!! The Beers are still cold and the chips and salsa are good, I'll be back soon.
