When did people start calling corner stores "bodegas"? I had barely heard the word until about five years ago.
In Cincinnati they are either a corner store or a del or a pony keg. A corner store generally refers to a corner store that is actually on a corner and if it has parking is in a vacant lot to one side. A del or a pony keg usually has a bootleg pre-zoning strip of parking in front that can't be built today, although a pony keg probably stocks more beer and is open later. Sometimes a pony keg is also a drive-thru, but a place that is explicitly called a drive-thru usually doesn't have a store you can walk into.
