Everything about this place is great. The lines can be long so try to go off peak hours. The sandwiches are out of this world as are the fresh juice sodas. We also had the spicy slaw which I highly recommend. Go - you wont regret it!

I went with my Dad to the Green Bench Brewery but they don't serve food. So I went to the Bodega for some take out. He and I split the Cuban sandwich with sides of black beans and cold slaw. My Dad said it was the best Cuban he'd ever eaten and I agreed. The black beans were fantastic. I... More

We needed lunch on our way to the Dali Museum and this spot was such an unexpected slice of heavenly pork! We both had the Lechon Plato with a huge portion of mojo pork and onions, a side of rice and beans, and a small pile of fried plaintains (maduros). Everything was delicious! There's great outdoor seating in the front... More

Very unique flavor combinations on their sandwiches. Everything we had was delicious. There's always a line but don't be deterred. Worth the wait. If there's a long line at the outside window you can order from inside next door which we did not realize. Would definitely eat there again.

We drove a long way for this, and they did not disappoint. We ordered two sandwiches and a side of black beans. No complaints on anything. Everything was amazing.

The Bodega clearly makes the best Cuban sandwich I've ever had! Raised in the Tampa area, I've tried many Cuban sandwiches from numerous places. Some of those were superb, but the Bodega's is the best. Wellllllll, why? They are crafted with the utmost care, using fresh traditional ingredients. The pork they use is traditionally prepared and is the star of... More

The outdoor seating is great and feels like a cantina. The Cubans were absolutely delicious. Perfectly toasted bread, traditional ham and pork, juicy pickles, and delicious white sauce to top it off. The portions are huge so it would be best to share one between two people. The coffee is bold and strong as well.
