This friendly mexican & latin america bistro is a fun place for lunch. Lunch prices are reasonable with large portions. Plenty for a "doggie bag". Have not been there for an evening meal but I understand it is well worth a visit

Delicious! Hot chips and awesome salsa. The fajitas cooked with tomato for extra juiciness and flavor are the best anywhere! Just ask for extra napkins as they tend to drip down your arms!!!

Came with family and been coming for years. Usually a wait. Chips and salsa served first. Service decent. Prices reasonable as most items are $12-15. Fajitas are very good with lots of chicken and sides. Enchiladas are always a good choice as well. Tacos are large and the steaks are tender. Food always hot. La Bamba probably better at this...

I love Mexican food, and La Bamba is the place that does it best! They have a wonderful menu, great service, a fun atmosphere (although it can be a little dark in there), and it is very reasonably priced. I will be back here time and time again!

Love the chicken fajitas! Their salsa cannot be beat. Food always comes out hot and fresh. Been going for years and I can't complain about any meal I've had there.

The taco salad was ok. The drinks are good. Service was great. A bit noisy at the bar. A fun evening with friends.
