We visited La Bodega on a Monday evening. As soon as we arrived we were informed of their wine special (1/2 price bottles) and given several recommendations. I particularly liked that this special included all wines, and not a limited list of already inexpensive wines.
We tried several tapas, including the squid and beef tenderloin, which I highly recommend.

We were way too early for the next tour at Boulevard Brewery so the tour guide suggested we head to La Bodega for a quick bite to eat. His comment was, "it's close, it's good and it isn't really expensive." Oh yeah, and I think he mentioned they served Boulevard beer.

Almost tucked below Highway 35, I would probably not have stopped at this location had it not been recommended. We arrived just about 11:30 am so it was not busy as we walked in on a Friday morning. Once inside we were surprised by the attention to detail in trying to imitate a Spanish restaurant.

Given that we had limited time, we passed on the lunch all-you-can-eat tapas bar for $12.95. Instead I had a sampler of tapas for $9.95 and my wife had the soup of the day, braised short rib and farro. The tapas were fantastic but I think my wife won. An absolutely well executed soup; hearty and well seasoned.

It became clear as we were leaving that this place is not a secret. From a company's meeting (about 12 people) to local business people grabbing to-go orders, this is a popular place and it is popular for a reason.

We went during restaurant week to celebrate birthdays. Having never tried Spanish tapas before, the waiter was very patient with all my questions. The food was excellent and the drinks were good. Also enjoyed the atmosphere and the music.It felt like we were in Europe, not a sports bar or chain restaurant, which is what I am accustomed to living in Topeka. Complimentary dessert for birthdays. Will definitely go again.
