The dinner was not very good. I ordered a Bloody Mary to start, terrible. The service was mediocre at best and the food left a lot to be desired. On top of that I had indigestion all night long.

Extensive Mexican menu. Friendly and prompt service. I particularly recommend the Crab Cimmichanga Three kinds of fajitas - all excellent. We will certainly return

The seafood burrito was wonderful. The refried beans were very tasty and well seasoned. The restaurant was colorful and pleasantly decorated. The service was very good. The different salsas were a nice touch with the tortilla chips.

Had a wonderful experience AGAIN!, this was my 3rd visit. The food is consistently good! I have been here with 2 of us and once with a very large group. The service has always been excellent, the food really delicious and a clean authentic atmosphere. I wish I was local, A++ I would definitely eat there again!

Great deal on lunch specials. As soon as you sit down you get free chips and salsa. You get a cup of soup with every lunch special order. Then you lunch plate comes and you get a good portion of your main dish along with a side item and with many dishes you also get a side of rice and... More

My husband and I have dined here twice. Our server Alma remembered us from our only other visit. She was very attentive both times. The food is fantastic and the dining room very clean. Probably the best Mexican food in the immediate area.

Been to La Bamba quite a few times, and it is consistently delicious. The chips and salsa are great too - especially the spicy salsa! The wait staff are always friendly and welcoming. The only negative is the margaritas are not great so try the sangria!

This is a neighborhood hang-out for many of us in North Palm Beach. They have a great happy hour, always crisp chips and home-made fresh salsa. I gravitate toward 2 healthy and delicious options. Their grilled marinated chicken with black beans and plantains is a generous portion of delicious-ness. My other go-to is their chicken mole. My husband loves the... More

Always looking for a good Mexican resstaurant and this was suggested by a friend. We live 25 minutes away, but decided to try it--and glad we did! Good value, I had a combination and ended up taking home most of it. There were 3 large parties (over 15 people each) in the restaurant at once, but food, drinks and service... More

We all enjoyed our meal. Generous portions. Good service. Reasonable prices. I took half my chicken sandwich home to eat later. Our son could not finish his meal either, unusual for us.
