Enchilada Verde is the most tasty dish in the world. Simple Mexican food but, so good. A bit pricey and wished more salad options. Also, wished other drink selection other than pop.

This place has the best authentic Mexican food I've ever tasted! The staff is friendly, the beer is cold and the menu has good variety. The place is bright and colourful, with Mexican decor and the portions are generous. But the place is tiny and busy (because it's soooooo good).

We go to La Bamba frequently and enjoy it every time. While my husband insists on ordering his favourite meal every time (La Bamba Alambre), I like to mix it up and have tried nearly everything on the menu (and loved all of them)! The freshness of the food, the friendliness of the staff and the speed of the service... More

I have been a huge fan since they opened a number of years ago and every time I go there, I am very happy that I chose La Bamba over other restaurants. The owner and staff are very friendly and personable and treat you like family. My favourite dishes are the chili relleno, the sopas, and the mole sauce, but... More

This is one of my favorite places to go to in Saskatoon. The restaurant itself is quite small. The friendly staff and wonderful food make up for it. We dine here frequently and have never been disappointed. The staff are so accommodating. One time we were there I had asked if they ever had tamales. They said they just happened... More

Had dinner early on a Wed evening in this small but charming out of the way restaurant. The place filled up quickly. We started with a small complimentary bowl of nachos and salsa. The tortilla soup, although very good, could have been hotter (temperature, not spice). The enchiladas verde was tasty and attractively presented.

It doesn't look like much as it's in a stripmall and the decorum is lacking. But the food is great! authentic tasting and delicious. I was disappointed they charged us for extra chips and salsa - as it was a small portion for four people to share.

This is a small hole-in-the-wall restaurant in a strip mall, but the food is really good and authentic, and the service is very friendly. When we want a taste of Mexico to keep us going until our next visit south, we head here. It never disappoints.

This place always falls off our radar for some reason. Not sure why. Whenever we go we are all like it and his time was no exception. It can get a bit busy so be prepared to wait a bit on a Friday. They are ver good at tiring tables and keeping things flowing. The food is more authentic Mexican.... More
