Our crew stopped here on Sunday, July 3rd for a birthday dinner after seeing a movie. The waiter was so rude -- I have never heard anyone spoken to in this way by a server! My daughter asked a questions and was having trouble understanding. He actually said, "if you are not ready to order, I have another table and... More

The food was good but could not communicate with the staff hardly at all. The waiter could not speak English and the rest of the people who worked there were not helpful to him at all. The food was good that we managed to get.

When Husband and I are travelling, La Bamba is a perfect stop. Clean, nice restrooms, settle into a comfortable seat and get some friendly service. The food is always good, and the service is fast. We enjoy the chips and salsa as well as the various Mexican dishes we've tried.

This is your typical Mexican joint. Service was good on both my visits, but it wasn't busy as I arrived just after opening. The food is a good value but could use more flavor. The sauces don't seem to bet made fresh and are very thin and runny. The portions are good and the lunch specials are good if you're... More

We went for lunch on a Saturday. They were not crowded so we were seated immediately. There was a minor mix up with one of the orders but it was quickly resolved. The food was prepared and served quickly. The server never let our drinks, chips or salsa run out.

I went for lunch with mykids for Mothers Day. Even thought the place was dead somehow we still had to wait about 15 mins to be seated. The waiters apparently were too busy watching tv. After we were seated it took them forever to come with chips and salsa or even take our drink order. When food came out my... More

The service was Ok, but the food is bland for Mexican food. The hot sauce tasted like mild tomato sauce and the enchilada had no flavor whatsoever.
