Very Average Mexican restaurant

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...

New to Midland, asked suggestions from people who had visited Midland in the past for good Mexican food. I was told by several that La Bodega was at the top of their list... I was a little scared to try with the bad service/new ownership comments featured here recently...but we decided to take my brother-in-law on his birthday during his... More

I have been going to this restaurant for many years. Before the owner died the food and service were great. The food is still good, but the service has lots to desire. I have gone several times lately and I guess they are losing customers as we have not had to wait. This was a place in year past that... More

I have been a La Bodega customer since the 70's. The food since Alois passed away has remained very good but the service has plummeted. Saturday we went for lunch and sat upstairs In the bar. There was a lady bartender/waitress and what I thought were her friends sitting at the bar. I say that because all three spent more... More
