Our first time here, and we will be back. The chicken mole was superb! Finished dinner with an Aztec coffee, so yummy.

I love stopping by La Bamba when I'm in Saskatoon on business. The food is incredible and the service is fantastic. The parking can be a pain depending on the time however it's worth it as the restaurant is clean and festive and the food is so good.

A little restaurant in a residential area tucked into a strip mall. Unassuming exterior, busy and bustling business with excellent service and food on the inside. I ordered Enchiladas La Bamba with a side of Guacamole. It was delicious and flavourful. The place was packed and they are "family friendly" (expect it to be a bit noisy).

This smaller restaurant (approximately 40 seats) offers the pleasant ambiance of a Mexican cantina with its brightly colored walls and tables, and Mexican music playing in the background. Though the "cantina" was full for lunch, service was friendly and prompt. Food was provided in sufficient quantity to satisfy most palates. Extra beans and rice are offered to anyone who isn't...

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 staff are delightful and they even have... 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
