LOVE this place and go there often. Everyone is wonderful there & totally accommodating. The garlic shrimp burrito is divine. So is the iced melon green tea. We've tried almost everything on the menu and have yet to find something we don't like. Delicious and always fun to be there. GO!

The food here was bland, mostly tasteless, and hardly resembled any Cuban or Caribbean food I have ever experienced. Additionally, it is overpriced for what it is.

We picked this place after looking at restaurants on tripadvisor. We love Caribbean food so off we went. First off, there is no true indoor seating. They have basically a covered patio with a walk up order window. It was a hot day and they had cooling misters running around the edge of the roof but they basically showered the... More

Value, good choice selection and outdoor seating was great. It was easy to get to - right off the main road. Parking was easy to find.

I believe that La Bamba is supposed to be Cuban but I feel like it is much more Mexican. My husband loves this place. I think its because they have a cooler on the floor where you just go to it and get your beer, its open and airy creating a fun atmosphere and big flat screen TV's that show... More

It had been a while since I last visited La Bamba. The latest visit didn't disappoint. The Cuban sandwich was tasty and hearty. The friendly service and outdoor setting made for very relaxed dining.

Great cuban food, check this place out for sure. I had the fish tacos, they were so good I could not believe it. This place is in a corner of a street looks nice too.

If you ever want to know which famous person is Cuban, just look at the walls of this gem.... You will see dozens of headshot from every Cuban that graced the silver screen or TV. The food is really good. BIG portions. Good prices.. FUN atmostphere! YUMMY!!!

This is some of the best Caribbean food that you're likely to find in S.California. It is a little outdoor eatery located on the outskirts of Burbank. I had been meaning to try it out for awhile and once I finally did, I was amazed! The guacamole and home salsa is some of the best that I have ever had.... More
