The food here is pretty good, service very good and the value is good for the money spent. I have eaten here twice recently and I have to say that is is worth the time if you are in the area.

I dined recently at this Mexican restaurant with visiting relatives. We were simply guided by its name "La Bamba" thinking the food experience, in general, would resemble that: A flawless and gracious service with a symphony of melodic flavors and tastes but, nope! We were...More

La Bamba is a pretty good restaurant with good lunch selection and prices. However, my chicken chimichanga was a little overdone. The service was pretty fast. The refried beans were the best item on the plate, perfectly creamy and covered in tasty cheese. Overall a...More

I love Mexican food and eat it often. Some friends recommended this place so I thought I'd give it a try. The food was good but it wasn't your typical American Mexican Restaurant type food. My daughters always order the ACP (typically chicken, rice, &...More

I visited this restaurant with a cousin and found myself to be impressed- the entrees were large portions and very well seasoned and prepared, you weren't overwhelmed with beans and rice, and the service was excellent. The prices were even more impressive...great atmosphere for families...More

We have been eating at LaBamba for over 20 years. Hated when they closed the Farmington Rd. location. Now we just drive a little further to the State Street location. Our favorite dish is the fajitas but the various combination plates are also very good....More

The food here was better than your average Mexican place. The salsa had an interesting twist to it, not too hot but a spice in it you don't always find. We asked to sub out green peppers and replace them with jalapenos in our entree...More

Delicious food, great service and relaxed atmosphere. A great time!! The chips and salsa are wonderful and they keep the basket full, great on drink refills too.

I usually eat here for the convenience when a Mexican food craving hits. It's not the best Mexican food in the entire world, or in Greensboro for that matter, but it's cheap and decent. I would recommend the chimichangas.
