Mexican

A restaurant smuggled from Mexico to Melbourne. Find Little Bourke Street’s late night mezcal bar and taqueria hidden underground in the China Town precinct, and open 7 days a week until late, including lunch Friday - Sunday. Try a Tequila or Mezcal cocktail, or speak to our team about sipping some exciting Agave spirits instead. The $55 Feed Me banquet offers great value and a huge mix of traditional Mexican street food, plus some dishes with a twist. We also offer a $69 Bottomless Brunch on Friday, Saturday and Sundays, with unlimited cocktails and 5 courses of food. We are located on the corner of Little Bourke and Crossley Street, Melbourne, with a moody bar and dining area perfect for both a quiet drink or a larger celebration.

Service was a bit hit and miss but when we could get a server's attention they were super helpful. Even cut up our food to ensure everyone got a portion of the yummy corn. Lovely fresh flavours and a great selection for a vegetarian amongst our party.

A bit on the pricey side - but for a special occasion, it’s absolutely worth it. The elote was so tasty and the black bean tacos were absolutely banging. They have a great vegan/vegetarian menu as well, so it caters to a varying group of people.

Also turned up and was told as we had no booking all seats were booked despite being plenty of seats available-went online and reserved a seat on open table….same server did not acknowledge this or apologise when we came back 5 mins later with our booking

We were sat right at the entrance and next to the stair case (understanding though because it was fully booked but we would recommend coming with more than two people so that you have better seating options). We booked online and requested welcoming tequila shots, however never received them. We were asked three times by three separate people if we had ordered our food yet. And we had a long gap between two of our dishes (~30min) that the server forgot to get us. We will come back just for the food alone

Other than that obvious health and safety risk, the food was good. Not a word of a lie. When we let the staff know we were concerned about the mice at our feet, they said “that was the nature of having a restaurant in the city”. Almost laughable. I wish I was making this up.

The food took a while, and the courses came out very close together. They did bring out the wrong food too. The food was delicious though, wish the service was better.

We were able to sit 5 at our table for 4 (though it was a little cosy!) The food was delicious and cocktails were good value

Most of the menu was great, although depending on who brought it out, depended on if we knew straight away if the food was for our Omni or vegan/veg party members. Sometimes we had no idea. However all the servers and staff was pleasant and friendly. All up we really enjoyed ourselves.

This is my first negative review, especially in Melbourne with the typically high quality of food and service. We left half way through our set menu we were so disappointed. After being sat, service was slow. While a busy night and understanding businesses have struggled through COVID, in comparison to other restaurants it was not on form. Everything was lacking real taste, nothing was seasoned properly. There are far better Mexican eats around if you have any desire for flavour. Whatever seasoning or spices were used were so burnt you couldn’t even taste them. The final straw was being served two stone cold dishes that were meant to be hot. Would not recommend. Save your time and money and go elsewhere.

I normally don't write reviews but I felt like I had to as the experience was really not good enough. The service was very poor. For a 90minute sitting bottomless brunch there were people in our party who left with only being served 2 cocktails. Most people in our group got served 3 cocktails as the service was so slow. We asked numerous times for our drinks and the answer was always just they are coming. The food wasn't great either. Most of us left hungry. There was a lot more that went wrong but the main feedback i think people should know is that when you go to a bottomless brunch you don't expect to get 2/3 cocktails and a very limited amount of food. The staff were nice and friendly but the service was so bad and did ruin the experience. Considering everyone paid $70 and there were 10 of us I don't think it was value for money at all.

But we ordered a gluten-free beer, the waitress delivered it, my friend double checked it was gluten-free with the waitress (as she has a medical condition) and the waitress confirmed it was only to come back 5 minutes later to say it wasn't. This was highly concerning to my friend since she was already half way through! Already a bad start. Later it turned out the waitress misheard our order and delivered our table of 3, 18 tacos (along with the 3 share plates we ordered). While we ordered 3 different taco dishes (2 tacos in each dish) she said we ordered 3 of each dish (hence the 18 tacos). Even if we accidentally did so, this is an outrageous amount of food and surely she would check? When we rejected the idea she left the table and we had to ask if we could have what we ordered instead. Later 2 managers came over, slammed the 18 tacos back on our table and insisted there were 2 tacos in each dish and would interrupt us when we said this wasn't the problem. We'd never been treated so villainously in a restaurant over such a mix-up. Heated words were exchanged before management realised the error. Later they came over with the bill, didn't offer to discount the meal (even for the mix-up with the gluten free beer) and we had to ask for it to be taken off, which they did so with no issue thankfully though they did note that they 'didn't want any more fuss'. We've never had such an aggressive experience in a restaurant and after that last remark we brought this up with them. They apologised for their aggression, which we appreciated, but they still implied that we ordered the 18 tacos and they were quite passive aggressive. As former hospitality workers this was very poor service and we won't be coming back.

But the service, not so great. A few meals we ordered never arrived - we found out they were never sent to the kitchen at all) and I ordered a non alcoholic drink (I even confirmed with the waitress that it was the mocktail), but it arrived and had alcohol in it (I am visibly pregnant.) Happy with the food, but I won’t be considering Bodega Underground for my next special occasion.

It started out nice but unfortunately the waiter was really incompetent. He didn’t take our order until 15 mins into our booking and then when we tried to order 8 mins before the end, he told us that he won’t take our order as of 2 mins ago. He didn’t bother to tell us that service was closing either. When we mentioned something to the manager, it was obvious she had no interest in resolving what a basic issue for the sake of a few mins. Shame because it ruined what would have been a nice visit. The place was empty on an Easter weekend too, so they obviously know how to let people leave dissatisfied.

We were seated at the rear of the restaurant behind kitchen, when we had a booking and tables available at the front. Churros came out half an hour after ordering and bill charges incorrect at end of the night. Table service not frequent enough. The food was good, particularly the corn and beef tacos that salvaged the experience.

A menu was provided but we were told what we were getting, no choice!! The waiting was the worst I have ever experience. Rushed, impersonel & non caring. Overall the worst experience I have ever had eating out. I would rather have gone to KFC!!!

We only managed to get 3 or 4 drinks in a 90 minute period and there was no alcohol in them! The guy with the longish hair and glasses has zero personality, and makes you feel like you’re a bother to him by just being there. Would not recommend, nor will I be back.

We were in an odd seat where we were so close to the couple next to us, which was a little uncomfortable. We got the bottomless brunch and the food was good. The online menu was different to the actual menu so there was a pumpkin dish and my fiancé hates pumpkin. We will go back but will call first to check preset menus or just do a la carte.

I've been here multiple times and everytime the tacos are amazing, the churros are to die for! Only negative comments is the potatoes- I wish they weren't frozen chips and were a good roastie with all the delicious seasoning they put on, I think a creamy sauce on the side would go down well with them too. Even in saying that, they tasted delicious, just the texture was a bit weird; like wet oven chips. I love the ambience at Bodega Underground and I seriously wouldn't get tacos from anywhere else! I've previously had the elote- which is incredible, but nothing beats a gluten free churro.

The music was so loud we found hear each other talk, the corn was great and the fish tacos, but cabbage, that's was just plain and not a good choice on the menu. The beef tacos tasted burnt and the sauce was too thick on the meat dish. I would never recommend it to anyone.

However, we had a large group for a bottomless brunch and the food portions were tiny. For the vegetarians you received a single corncob, one taco, a third of a slice of pumpkin, a handful of nachos, and one churro. We assumed more portions of food were meant to be arriving to the table and when we asked (quite politely) we were met with a server who was quite rude and defensive unfortunately. Service was also very slow to begin with and the venue seemed generally disorganized (like they couldn’t handle our large booking). The venue ambiance was fun and the food was enjoyable! It’s just a shame that the service wasn’t great and the portions not worth the money.
