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.

When we arrived, nearly all of the tables were taken and there were some people waiting for take-out. Pretty impressive for a Tuesday evening in a strip mall! We were curious to see if La Bamba was as good as its reputation. The waitress was friendly and quickly brought us nacho chips with two kinds of salsa. She made sure... More

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.
