We had a great experience at Bodega Comida on a recent trip from Portland, OR to the St. Pete area. We actually settled on grabbing lunch based of the enticing smells coming from the order window at this restaurant on Central Ave. We weren't disappointed. We settle on the Pollo and the Cuban Sandwiches. Both were well prepared and delivered... More

This is the best place to eat Cuban sandwich or have a fresh juice around down town St. Petersburg. Nice place and location. Reasonable prices. Highly recommended!

I've been in St. Pete for about 2 months and have eaten out quite a bit. There are many great inexpensive places, and Bodega is without question the best. In fact, in terms of quality of food, I would rate it above not just taquerias and sandwich places, but above any of the high-end spots we've been to. Out of... More

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....

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.

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.

Thank kmgrant
