Lots of canned ingredients and average tasting food. Good if you're hungry or have a craving. The service is also average.

Its been awhile since we've eaten here and Mexican food sounded good. Not sure if we should have "waited" to be seated but for some reason our waiter was not happy with us.
With that said the best part about La Bamba is consistently good Mexican food.
I tried the Tex Mex chicken salad and it was very tasty. Not sure what they marinated the chicken in, but it was yummy. The salad was on the smaller side and I was shocked at really how little lettuce there was in it but it was so good I'll want to have it again next time.

We have eaten here for years. Family run classic Mexican restaurant. Our best choice for Mexican food in Truckee, CA.

Loved the pico de gallo and chips. We had the tortilla soup, tinga, chimichangas and veggie burrito. All we're very tasty! Service friendly and efficient.

If you want affordable traditional Mexican food in a friendly atmosphere, this is the place. Low prices. Full bar. But don't expect any frills.
