My grandma suggested this place for lunch one of the days we were here and didn't have a lot of time. It's a hole in the wall and there are those who love this place and those who don't. The service was great, we got our food within minutes and it was really good. Inexpensive and what you would expect... More

We were seated after just a few minutes of waiting. We placed our drink orders with one waiter who came back to ask what we had ordered. However, he was pretty good with refilling our cups before they were completely empty which was great. We placed our food order with another waiter who seemed to be confused about our order... More

Ate there several times for business meetings. The food was terrible. The service was poor at best. The seating was uncomfortable, the interior of the restaurant was dark. Not very good, Which was surprising since so many people said how good it was. I guess their all crazy or maybe I am crazy. Save you money.

His place used to be a consistantly good place to enjoy a meal...the last 3 times I have been it has been a downward spiral. The service is the worst part. Two servers actually argued over who was going to have to wait on us because they each clearly had better things to do. I know good help is hard... More

The picture says it all. The "chili con carne" turned out to be red enchilada sauce with chunks of beef in it. Not impressed. If this is the best restaurant in Odessa, I feel bad for Odessans.

I went La Bodega (The Warehouse) because it was top rated on Trip Advisor and I was not disappointed. This apparently is one of a 40-year old group of restaurants in West Texas..The only downside was a 15-20 minute wait for a table at 8:30 on a Friday night. The complimentary chips and salsa were very good - not greasy... More

My favorite mexican food when I visit Midland. Nothing like it in the rest of the country. Excellent margaritas and I can't pass up on the enchilada dinner. Chips and salsa a great, and the atmosphere can't be beat.
