We had pork/tostadas, pork quesadilla, and chicken quesadilla, all were excellent. Chicken and pork were both savory, slow cooked tastes with tons of flavor and spices (seasoning spice, not chile spice for all the non-New Mexicans out there). Ambience is cozy and nice. I also had a frozen mojito, which was as good as it sounds.

This restaurant was rated highly so we tried it. When we first got there we thought we had the wrong place as we hadn't seen any pics of it. We were seated in the back on a patio that is quite rustic, but full of charm. The service was very good. But when we tried the food, we were completely sold! The dishes were exceptional and have a Cuban flair. I would highly recommend El Bodegon! It's an experience and BTW the music they were playing was also outstanding. More progressive Latino musico. If you are looking for an extravagant setting, this may not be your place, but if you are looking for a great dining experience, this may be it.

Thank John W

Thanks, John!

I'm glad you mentioned the service. I love my staff and I love hearing when they do a good job :) Thanks for giving us a chance in spite of our rustic feel. Hope you enjoy the rest of your time here!

We ate here twice during our stay in Leon and loved both of our meals! The shredded pork dish was especially tender and flavorful and extremely filling. The second night we had the quesadilla with chicken and it was just as tasty! The frozen mojitos were also delicious! The mint was ground right into the mix instead of just floating on the side, which made the flavor so much more intense and enjoyable. A perfect way to cool down after a hot muggy day wandering around Leon.

So glad you had an enjoyable experience! I love our mojitos--secret ingredient is house-made lemongrass simple syrup ;)

We went to El bodegon for dinner with friends because it was number 1 on TripAdvisor. I must say the food was really tasty! I had the quesadillas with beef meat and the plate was overloaded. It tasted really nice! Only the prices have increased by 20 Cordobas since December while there open since 2016. Still worthy to go to! Recommend!

I really recommend to sit in the backyard! There's chill music, and the food is great. Try the drinks too!
Ps: Come hungry, the portions are big
