I don't like giving a bad review but I don't know why we went back. We can't imagine how this place can still be in business. It is not clean, windows smeared with prints and sticky menus. The fajitas we had were not even recognizable and both my husband and I ended up with upset stomachs. Oh but the salsa... More

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!

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
