Good service. First time having Cauliflower soup, it was great! They don't have it daily but the chicken soup is served daily and always good. I usually order the pollo a la plancha or the number 3 on the lunch menu, always good! Nice inexpensive lunch. Much better than fast food. It can be loud at... read more

Great food and atmosphere. Chips and two kinds of salsa brought as soon as your seated. Margaritas, sangria and beer are ice cold. Parking is a bit tough since it's in a shopping center

I have been here several times and the service and food are always wonderful. I have also been to several other LaBamba restaurants and they are also great. Try them all...They are all family owned and well run.

This place is always busy and always has a wait but that is a good thing as it shows you that their food is good. They never disappoint in their service and quality of food. Most of the time it is a 15 min wait but it is worth the wait to get authentic Mexican food. Their Mexican pizza is... More

Have been eating at la bamba for over 10 years, always good, very consistent, good service good quality food for the money. Worth every penny. The place is very well run, from the man at front door, to the part owner checking things out, servers, bussers they all know what to do.

Great Fajitas ... chicken or steak... sizzling on your plate and delicious!! Don't forget to get some Nachos as an appetizer. You can always go "American" with a burger, but you would pass up some great Spanish and Mexican cuisine!! They have Early Bird Specials between 4 and 6 ... a Special Lunch Menu between 11:30 and 2:30, too! They... More

We were there while there was a birthday party of at least 20 people in the same room. Service was s-l-o-w and the food was just OK. We haven't been back.

I have been frequenting this restaurant for as long as I lived in South Florida. The food is excellent (masa de puerco and fajitas are my go-to faves) and the atmosphere is great. The bar is good as well. The staff is excellent, they have had some of the same wait staff for as long as I have been going... More
