We were really disappointed in our visit. Our waiter had the personality of a wet nap and the food was not any better. The taco meat was described by one of our party as "cat food". Perhaps it is our fault for thinking we could find good Mexican food outside of Texas.

I stopped in last week for lunch and found not only the service but the food to be good. The chips and salsa were tasty and for lunch I had Pork Carnitas. The pork was was super tender and everything tasted fresh. I would eat here again!

We love Mexican food and don't usually find good food outside of the Houston area but this place was great. The food had great flavor and the wait staff was very friendly.

The food was horrible, I had the fajitas and it tasted like it had no seasoning on it. My wife had the fajita toco salad and the chicken was cold, also no flavor. I don't recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We stopped in this little place our first afternoon in town. It was mid-afternoon and we wanted something to hold us over while waiting for other family members to arrive to town. Husband and I both ordered a margarita on the rocks and fish tacos. Both were incredible! From the outside, this place doesn't look like a "must try" place,... More

Stopped here after a day in Destin on the way back to PCB. Should have read the reviews but my family was in the mood for Mexican. We sat quickly and ordered soft drinks. Chips and salsa came, chips were cold and stale. Ordered cheese dip without jalapeños and all cheese dip had jalapeños so that was a no go.... More

Don't waste your time. Lunch menu for a burrito $15.00 . The carpet is dirty and stinks. I don't recommend this restaurant.

The food was good . Everyone in our family liked their food, but wait staff was just ok. This place was convenient. We were starving, wanted Mexican, and it was on the way to our hotel. 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
