We had been traveling past this place for years, and we finally had to go in an check out the action in this popular place. Love the decorations, and the personnel are very courteous, too! It is a large menu, and this carnivorous mutt zeroed in on the Beef Fajitas. My spouse had the Beef Caldo (clear broth) good way... More

I had lunch with a few friends here as a last minute decision. The restaurant was full, yet the staff handled everything in a friendly and efficient way. Food was very good. Traditional fare for a Mexican Restaurant. It is obviously a place that people return to, as the customers and staff were familiar with one another. Always a good... More

Nice Mexican atmosphere, good service, good food. Not overpriced as suggested by a previous review. We appreciate the restaurants that still give chips and salsa at no charge. They serve a warm red salsa and very good avocado salsa (I recommend a dip in both per chip). The verde sauce was delicious; the chicken in the enchiladas was good quality... More

I eat at La Bamba often and love it every time! I've several different dishes here but I usually get fajitas. The food and service are both excellent. They are also fast even when they are very busy.

Always an excellent meal and the margaritas are delicious. Great service and great food. Margaritas are delicious. My entrée had large big pieces of tender chicken (not that weird shredded stuff) and loaded with ripe avocado.

If there was ever a time for a half....dot, this is it. A solid 3.5 Mexican food spot. Good quesadillas and salsa, for sure, and seems popular and bouncy in the atmosphere. The staff seemed lethargic (maybe it was the rain?) though. We'll round up for them having La Liga on instead of just college football... a rare shift deep... More

My husband and ordered fajitas for two. We got both beef and chicken. The chicken was so bland you had to find everything on the table to add to it to give it some kind of flavor. The beef was so tuff I felt like I was chewing on leather. The hot sauce and green sauce was extremely bland. I... More
