Mondays are the night to go. We go for the boys night out. The wait is long. The chips and salsa is my favorite part. I could make a meal on those alone. The food is fast hot and plenty. You never leave hungry

Monday night caters to a specific Fort Lauderdale and tourist crowd and is VERY busy. Arriving any time after 7pm and you are likely to wait for a table. Not a problem, they do excellent margaritas at the bar so time flies while you wait and its a friendly crowd so you are likely to make friends while you wait.

Once seated, service is quick and food and drinks orders dispatched in no time by friendly waiters who are run off their feet! Word of warning, the portions are BIG so order accordingly. But, all very tasty and standard items you would expect from a Mexican restaurant.

Always visit here when we go to FL. Portions are generous and very tasty. Excellent wait staff, very fresh food because of the big turnaround. You will enjoy LaBamba

I love Mexican food so when visiting family they suggested we eat here. I was disappointed by the fact they didn't have fish tacos as this is what I normally love to order. I also thought the salsa wasn't that great it had a funny after taste but chips were good. So I decided to order the fish & shrimp fajitas after talking to my waitress. They were super delicious and filling. The fish was cooked prefect and so was the shrimp. But heads up thats all you get when ordering this dish there's no side of beans or rice. Over all it was a good dinner but kinda seemed pricy for it having no sides along with it. Service is good and friendly, food came out in pretty good timing since we had a party of 6.
