We go here a couple times a month, always great food and great service; both Dine-in and to go. The pollo a la plancha is amazing!

This is probably one of the highest volume restaurants in the area. Always a wait to get a table if its after 6pm, but that's because the food and service is top knotch. We love their complementary chips and salsa, their mexican dishes as well as their spanish plates. Margarita pitchers are a great deal!

I love this place! Fast & Wonderful Service! The food is so good at a great price. Go early gets you in without a wait. The tables turn pretty quickly so if you have to wait it's not too long. Enjoy!

This was not my first visit, but my first crab chimichanga. I also had ice tea, salsa and chips. The restaurant was clean, and the price low.

No matter what you choose you will not be disappointed. Food is fresh and delicious...My favorites are the chicken or cheese enchiladas, crab chimichanga, and stuffed peppers! The fresh salsa and chips are amazing the spicy one has quite a kick! Margarita's forget about it! Yummy.

Went on a Saturday night at just after 8PM. Very crowded and was told 40 minute wait. Ordered margaritas (very good) at the bar. Since most of those waiting were larger groups, we were seated in less than 20 minutes. Portions were both large and tasty. Good value for the price.

La Bamba has been in Margate for years and they have a second location in Fort Lauderdale. Food always is good.. The masa de Purco ( Marinated fried Pork) and Palomilla steak are my favorites.
