If you order off the lunch menu it is ready fast and inexpensive. Food is always good and most servers are good. Drinks are good too.

Enjoyed a quick late dinner two nights ago. Great salsa and fresh chips as always. Their chicken burrito is the perfect combination of cheesy saucy and spicy. The dinner is a very filling combination & the house margaritas are exceptional as expected!!

My wife and I went to La Bamba recently while on vacation in Florida. The restaurant was packed with a line out the door. The food was good and our server was friendly and prompt. We will go the next time we're in the area.

Went there on advise from our concierge....expected much better! 5 of us... Fajitas were good, but other things tasted kinda generic. Ok if you just want to fill up, but if you expect anything above average you will likely be disappointed. Probably wouldn't go again.

I've been going here for years and I always come back. The palomilla steak is my go to dish. The restaurant always seems to be bustling but the service is always quick and friendly. I have no complaints about this place.

It should be the standard, always fresh and good. Solid margaritas and quick service, best local for this style food. Been to other locations, family owned and consistent. Busy at this location most peak times, go a little early.

Mexican/Spanish in a strip mall. Ambience was OK, but server was hard to communicate with. The food was ok to odd. Two beef dishes we ordered tasted like New England beef stew. Not very Spanish or Mexican. The chips and salsa before the meal were terrible. Hard thick chips and tasteless salsa. You can get hot version but that was... More

I always enjoy dining at la Bamba. They are consistently good! Food is always great tasting. It does get packed on Friday and Saturday nights. I love the fajitas and chicken soup. Salads always fresh. Lunch prices are very reasonable. Margaritas are good!

I can remember the original dinky storefront in Sunrise across from the entrance to Inverrary in 1989!!! That's how long we've been going to La Bamba. There are a few locations in Broward county and they're all consistantly good. All are owned by the same related family members. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. I love the... More

By far the best around. From the margaritas, to the chips, salsa, quesadillas, fajitas, and to my favorite the crab burrito this place rocks. I always order to go food and service is fast and friendly. Just a fun place and I highly recommend it
