While eating with the family in the 'small room' as they called it, a roach was crawling up the wall. Needless to say, we all lost our appetite.... Sat. Jan.9,2015

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

I have noticed that this place always has a lot of business, so decided to give it a try. I met my husband there for lunch and we sat in the nice enclosed patio area. It was a little stuffy at first but once the air conditioner came on it was very comfortable. We got there at 11:30 and the... More

I took my family to eat here for the excellent food that my wife has had here in the past. We were seated immediately at a nice table and got water and chips with salsa. Over the course of the meal, we had approximately 6 different people come to the table and could not determine which one was our server.... More

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
