The service was Ok, but the food is bland for Mexican food. The hot sauce tasted like mild tomato sauce and the enchilada had no flavor whatsoever.

We went for lunch on a Saturday. They were not crowded so we were seated immediately. There was a minor mix up with one of the orders but it was quickly resolved. The food was prepared and served quickly. The server never let our drinks, chips or salsa run out.

I went for lunch with mykids for Mothers Day. Even thought the place was dead somehow we still had to wait about 15 mins to be seated. The waiters apparently were too busy watching tv.

I have been here before, and drive by here almost every day. Very seldom do I see cars in parking lot....should have been an omen! I entered a typical texmex orange and fiesta colors, banners proudly proclaiming Cinco de Mayo(in September), standing by hostess podium I interupted a server's TV time, but he would make it up. I went to... More

And I know authentic Mexican. I waste of money. A party of 7 and the only edible plate was my grand daughters pop corn ship and fries.

Went to La Bamba on a Thursday night. Already had a bad feeling when there was only about 5 people in the restaurant eating. Ordered a typical plate of beans, rice, an enchilada and a taco. Chip and dip came to the table and the dip was a brownish red and more the consistency of a water tomato soup. Meals... More

The best Mexican food in town. Very authentic and a great value. It's the only Mexican restaurant I eat at when I am in Dothan. I have tried the other Mexican restaurants in Dothan and I alway come back to La Bamba.

The food was average. The chips and salsa were good and the drinks were good as well. Easy walking distance to several hotels.
