    Review: Update – I stopped in again this morning and had their $5 breakfast sandwich.it was so good I had to update my original review and add the photo. There were very few people in here this morning and I’m not sure why. The food is great, staff is happy to be here, and great atmosphere.

    I’d definitely recommend Bedrak cafe. It’s a local restaurant, there’s one reason. It’s super clean, another reason. Most of all, their food was outstanding! The service was great and even though the price was a little higher than I expected, it was totally worth going there. Highly recommend!

    Review: I went all-in and had the full hot pot and sushithis time and loved it. I went with the herbal broth for the base and added cabbage, mushrooms, muscles, and several other great vegetables. The food was delicious, the service was great, and I will definitely be back. It was a little on the pricey side but both times I’ve been there it has been consistently good.

The chips and queso were the perfect start – absolutely delicious! And the steak fajita taco salad? Simply the best. La Charreada is definitely the top spot for Mexican cuisine in Bloomington, though shoutout to El Ranchero for being a super close second!
