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

I have been coming here for a very long time. Tonight was the first time I was dissppointed. Mothers Day dinner and there was a nice, steady crowd. I have been here when it was much busier. Service is always quick, friendly and polite. The frozen Margarita is always great. Unfortunately the meal was not up to La Bamba standards.... More

Best Mexican food I ever tasted. Highly recommend it. Everything was cooked to perfection. WHen they say hot sauce, they mean hot sauce. I had the burritos. This is a must.

All of the standard Mexican dishes that you would expect to find on the menu. Attentive staff when not to crowded or busy. Must be good as there are often waiting lines for 45 minutes. Carnitas, Carne Asada and Pollo ala plancha, my favorites always meet my expectations. Margaritas do meet your expectations.

It seems to have its ups and downs in service and food quality and yet it is hard to ruin Spanish food - the charmingly boisterous atmosphere around the bar seems to save it

We've been dining at this local chain restaurant for many, many years and the food is never disappointing. It's always delicious and the service is very prompt.

We choose La Bamba whenever we have the urge for Mexican....the rest of the neighborhood must feel the same way, since it is ALWAYS crowded. Great selection, friendly staff, and the chips and salsa are always fresh and plentiful. It is a great meeting place with friends or family who are scattered throughout the county - it is close to...

This is a popular Tex-Mex restaurant in the Peppertree Plaza shopping center off Sample Road. Went there on a Monday because it was 2/1 margarita night. Once there also found out that we arrived for the 4pm - 6pm early bird specials. Warm chips and two kinds of salsa served immediately. The hot version could have used cilantro, which was... More
