“Terrible service, all right food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

Had to wait over 45 minutes for a medium sirloin and a pulled pork sandwich... 12 other patrons in the place at the time, so it was not busy... food arrived luke warm, and I'm pretty sure it was sitting in the kitchen for a while before getting to our table. The only time we saw our waiter was when he brought the check. Will not be coming back.

“Skip it!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

Maybe we walked into a wake and we didn't realize it. If so, it must have been the owner that died, because patrons and staff were both miserable. Maybe it was the chef that died, because the food was reminiscent of 3am stop offs at waffle house on the cooks first day. What a shame, this place could be so great. R. I. P Bodega Saloon.

“Porterhouse steak and song!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Atmosphere was great, they had an old school country singer on the patio, as usual I had the porterhouse steak and as usual it was fantastic. The staff was great especially my waiter, I'm picky about my steak and he was very patient, and the beer was ICE cold! Lastly the price was fair, Buffalo you did it right again!

“Take a fly swatter”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Four of us had lunch and hoped to stay to enjoy the music, but the food was so bad and the flies were everywhere! I had the "prime rib sandwich" which was a dried out piece of meat on top of a hot dog bun. No amount of au jus could save this sandwich. My friends had burgers and left at least half uneaten. The flies in the outdoor area (which is most of the restaurant) were swarming everything and it wasn't much better inside.
I would never go back to this restaurant or recommend it to anyone. If you want to enjoy the music, do it from the sidewalk outside.

“Great music. Food just okay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Very slow service. Waited 20 minutes. Waitress said they where short-handed. She took the order of the table next to use (they were seated first), but couldn't seem to take our order at the same time. Then took another 10 minutes before she could get back to us for our order. Food was fine. The entertainer was very good and enjoyable.
