Located on a corner on Glenoaks Blvd., parking is on the street. Basically outdoors there is some indoor seating. Most people prefer the outdoor seating. The menu is larger than you would expect.

Recently, I made a trip to Burbank. Knowing I would be arriving at the airport at 8:30pm, I researched ahead of time to find some nearby restaurants that would be open. La Bamba was open until 10pm on Friday, my arrival day. When i checked their website, the food looked great. The hundreds of positive yelp reviews were encouraging as... More

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.

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!!!
