My husband and I are pretty much regulars at La Bamba in Margate. Just be prepared to wait, unless you come on a weeknight, and even then there is normally a 15 minute wait, be patient. On the weekend nights (Friday - Sunday) near the dinner rush you will be, on average waiting 30 + minutes because this place is so popular.

On average 2 people with drinks, no apps will cost around $40. The give you as much free salsa and chips as you need. The mild salsa is some of the BEST I have ever tasted. It is prepared fresh, and always tastes consistent. I wish I could bottle this stuff up and take it home!!

I've had nearly 1/2 of the pretty extensive menu, and the only thing I do not fancy, is their tacos. I can't explain why, because tacos are my favorite food and I've hardly ever met one I did not like.

The portions are HUGE! You will see most people leaving with a "doggy bag." It is well worth the average 12-15$ cost of a plate. If you like comfort mexican food, you will sure dig this place and not a frown will be seen on any of your parties face! (Promise!) The staff is very nice, and attentive. The food is delivered FAST even when the place is packed!

Salsa is watery but ok, needs to be fresher. The lunch price includes soup or beverage. Big portions.

We have been visiting La Bamba in Margate since it opened. The food is always fresh, always tasty and the service is always top notch. I have personally tried everything on the menu and have never has a complaint. The place is always clean and they keep redecorating to keep the look fresh. We have brought dozens here and no one has ever left unhappy.
