I got the corned beef club and it was fantastic! The corned beef was not salty at all and I like the fact how thin the beef is sliced. The sandwiches are served with homemade chips and a side of pickle. The prices are reasonable and from my experience well worth it. Check it out!

Bode's has been here forever. Yeah, it shows a little inside but the meals are great for corned beef lovers. There are some other options available but this is about the corned beef first and foremost. I wouldn't call it the best corned beef I've ever had but it's tasty enough. The location alongside the railroad tracks is fun for... More

Have been a customer for five plus years and am disappointed to report having a crummy experience. Both orders of corned beef were cold and despite the low customer count (3 or 4 other tables) service was both slow and surly.

not one to trash talk a place, but it does not live up to the hype. Sandwiches are small and expensive. Found better corned Beef sandwiches at L'Georges coney

A classic Corned Beef tradition in Plymouth, a new owner, and a freshened interior, equals more space to sit and enjoy their delicious Food. From my favorite, Corned Beef Hash & Eggs, to Corned Beef sandwiches - it's more comfortable than ever before. It's a welcomed update indeed. We're sold on the taste, as the tradition carries on in style.

I used to go here as a kid with my dad. Now as an adult i go with my husband. It looks the exact same, it's an awesome hole in the wall that specializes in corned beef, I've never had a bad meal at Bode's! Friendly staff & very reasonable prices.

Bode's is an awesome little 'hole in the wall' kind of place. It's kind of like stepping back in time as it's an old fashioned diner like place. Breakfast is fantastic - you have to get the corned beef hash - it's as good as my mom used to make! If you're having lunch have the corned beef sandwich. It's... More

This was my second return to Bode's for lunch. I had an open-faced corned-beef sandwich, with the brown gravy on the side. First, let me relay that the corned beef at this establishment is absolutely delectable. My 93 year old grandmother attended with me, and I had to do a bit of careful planning and execution to get her wheelchair... More

I was looking for something different and was lured in by the corned beef house sign. I was expecting a specialty resturaunt. Inside its called the Bode's Sidetrack Diner. Its just that. A diner. It's old, worn, and dirty. They had a generous menu with lots of choices typical for a diner. I went for their "signature" sandwich, the corned... More

I've been here a couple times when I visit the area and the corned beef sandwich is amazing! Seriously. I'm not much of a corned beef fan but was told they could change my mind and they did. I don't care for bread pudding ever but you MUST try it! The staff is friendly, though often very busy. It's a... More
