Many margaritas were passing by and looking tempting . Definitely a good place for families . Low price but large portions . You may want to... More

If you have time I would go somewhere else but if you want something easy try it out They did have two for 1... More

I like to think of myself as a Mexican connoisseur. I grew up in a community with a 90 percent Mexican population and have have spent significant periods of time in Mexico. La Rumba is good if you are craving Mexican as long as you know it is just that. Mexican. Many of the establishments attempting to be "Mexican" in... More

This place is awesome! The margerita's are perfect and the food is great, the waiters and waitresses are second to none! Prices are so reasonable for the quality of the food and drinks. We loved it and will return with friends - often!

Friday night is typical dine out night and break from cooking at home. Drove to five restaurants in Destin, all with long lines out the door. Driving home we spotted La Rumba and decided to give it a try. Strange odor when we walked in the door - but warm chips and salsa arrived immediately. The salsa was the absolute... More

The best thing about our experience was the server, very good; other than that, yuck. We love mexican food and eat at several different restaurants on a regular basis, and this is by far the worst salsa we have ever eaten, it tasted like chili! The rice had a funny taste to it and the beans were gross as well.... More
