this place is always busy, and we cannot figure out why? Service is horrible 1.5 hrs to get served??? Food was bland and cold, server was rude !! When we did complain to the manager, there was no apology, or comp. of any portion of the bill... will never go back.

After having really poor service in the past we decided to give La Bamba another try. Darn, big mistake. Upon sitting down after no one greeted us at the door or counter our menus were sticky and covered in I'm not sure what. We sat for about 5 mins before anyone noticed we were at the table. We ordered a... More

LaBamba should be a great gathering place for folks traveling through and living in the Sandy Oregon area. Our experiences after visiting LaBamba has not improved over the last 3 years. Not friendly service, slow, blaw food, not very clean and tidy. Sure hope they can bring the standards up. Sandy needs a good Mexican restaurant!

We went in for appetizers plus some drinks. It turned into having dinner as well. Awesome food, we'll be back for sure.

My wife and I just moved to Sandy and we have started our restaurant visit to ferret ou the good, the bad, and the ugly. We had lunch at La Bamba and all went well. The service was quick and courteous, the fare was above average and the price, most reasonable. My wife and I each had combination dinners that... More

My bf and I have come here a few times as he loves Mexican food and this is really the only "Mexican" restaurant in sandy. Every time we go we have horrible service. It takes forever for someone to take your order. Food is always very greasy snd often times the food they use is frozen or canned. This last... More

This is honestly the only restaurant in Sandy my husband and I have gone back to more than once. Slim pickings. The food is good and prices are reasonable. The negatives are the poor service at times (depends on the waiter) and it could be cleaner. That being said we have always enjoyed our meals and recommend it to anyone... More

Sandy isn't known for its fine dining, and so we fall back on a few favorites when we go out to eat. One is La Bamba. I read the other reviews and was surprised, as we've always enjoyed eating here. Of course, by now we're so familiar with the menu that we usually have our minds made up before we... More

I have been a "regular" here since it opened. The good...amazing flavors and something different. They do have the typical numbered combinations that bore most folks. The trick with this place is to be willing to try something new. I've had most everything on the menu over the years but here are the best... Calamari special Tlatonalie (sp?) Pipian Margaritas...
