Simple but delicious

The food is simple, the menu does not boast a huge range of flavours, but everything we've had is quite good. Some things could use more spice but that's what their selection of hot sauce is for! Their salsa that they send out with complimentary (freshly fried) tortilla chips is super yummy! The... read more

La Bamba provides casual dining and real Mexican people food. Two of us dined on plates of pollo enchiladas, verde and chipotle. Prepared with obvious care the food arrived quickly and was presented simply with beans, rice, and a touch of salsa. The tastes were integrated and authentic to their origin. Both of us - extensive travellers to Mexico -... More

Went for a family supper and ordered the green enchiladas, chipotle enchiladas, beef tacos, kids quesadilla, and guacamole. Starter chips came with watery salsa. Green sauce was good, but both enchiladas were made with flavourless boiled chicken. Beef tacos were soggy shredded beef on a tortilla...that's it. Can find better guacamole at Costco. $70 was expensive for the meal. Next... More

My husband and I ate here last week but have dined here a few times before. The food at La Bamba's is amazing! Chips and salsa are amazing! We love the enchiladas: verde, la Bamba and chipotle. So very delicious! Great margaritas and beer too! The salt rimmed glass really adds to the beer and lime! Delicious! Best food in... More

My wife and I are becoming devoted fans of La Bamba and especially of their enchiladas, which happen to be a specialty they excel at. Last evening I had an En Molada while my wife had our usual favourite, the Chipotle Chicken Enchilada. I had not experienced La Bamba's mole sauce before and I have to say that it is... More

We have been here a few times after a friend introduced me to La Bamba. I have tried many different items on the menu and have always been happy with the quality, taste and presentation. The decor is pleasant and clean, price is excellent as well as portions generous. Owner is on site whenever I have been there and he... More

Only restaurant that serves true Mexican food, even though only basic dishes. The taste is very close to the real Mexican food considering the ingredients available in Saskatchewan. It might be a little overpriced, but there is no other option for real Mexican food like " Enchiladas Verdes".

This is a very good (but smaller) restaurant that serves very reasonable and authentic Mexican cuisine. Staff here is very helpful, polite and friendly/ conversational. A large, varied menu awaits you; cannot go wrong with the enchiladas or quesadillas. The home made hot sauce is a can't miss if you like spicy food. Bar service also top notch. It is... More

We used to get Enchilada Verde for pick-up every Sunday night before watching The Walking Dead. It is LITERALLY the best. We never get anything else because we don't dare stray. It is LITERALLY the same and perfect every time. How they accomplish this is beyond me. The chunky tomato salsa is soooo good; we would buy it by the... More

We come to this restaurant often as a family and with other couples. It is tucked away into a small mini mall and you might not notice it if you're driving by. It's quaint but you won't have to wait long for a table. They only take one reservation an hour here because they want to honor the drop in... More
