Great food, but it took between 20 and 30 minutes to get 2 sandwiches. It is a stand and wait situation, but the staff is friendly.They have good food and its worth waiting a little longer, but sometimes its just too long for what the order is....

We discovered Bodega 3 years ago when we first moved to St Pete. It is so delicious without fail. The 'feel' of the crowd is always happy & good as they await their amazing & tasteful dishes & tropical drinks. We go often to eat there & to carry out. The authentic flavors of the interesting dishes linger in a... More

Love Bodega's. Delicious chicken dish and pork dish. Great homemade sodas and the best roasted corn on the cob, in season.

Always a line but always worth the wait. Cuban sandwiches or slow roasted pork with black beans and rice are two of my favorites.

Came here for lunch on a Sunday. You know a good place when there is a line of people waiting to order. We had time, so we waited. It took about 30 min to get the food after we ordered and it was worth it. We got the pork sandwich and the Cuban. Sooo good and they leave a good... More

I have eaten here several times. No matter what you have it will be awesome. They catered friends wedding last year and I couldn't have been happier with the food and service.

I am Cuban and grew up eating this food everyday. The Pork dinner is easily the best in the area. It is fast and fantastic.

Bodega makes fabulous sandwiches. Make sure you go at an off hour, otherwise the line is down the sidewalk. Seating is limited but has been greatly improved when they took over the store front next door. They make a refreshing soda of fresh fruit juice and soda water.

Their food is just delectable! I would love to go back and try the others in their menu. If you live in St. Petersburg and have not tried this, then you are missing a whole lot. Make sure to go early; there could be quite a long wait since they cook it as you order and the people just keep... More

Bodega serves yummy tasting Cuban sandwiches for the right price!! Be sure to arrive early to brave the line which can take up to a half hour waiting time. Seating may be a bit tough but one can eat at the juice bar next door. The food...it's worth the wait and service is superb!
