Big menu with tex mex and other Latin items. Food is always good. Salsa is excellent and grilled chicken is unbelievably flavorful! Good margaritas, too! Adding tamales to the menu would be a big plus.

This is an attractive restaurant in a large free standing building on US1. The service is always friendly and the food good. The best value is the lunch menu.

We have been coming here for several years as our go to place or Mexican food. My suggestion is the Chicken Fajita which we share and get a side of black beans. Plenty of food to share. I also would point out that the bathrooms are modern and very clean which sys what you can expect in the kitchen.

The food is good. Especially the salsa and rice. They don't serve tamales - which are my favorite. Wish the atmosphere were better. It's large inside.

We have dined at La Bamba in this location multiple times and we keep going back! The restaurant is large and we have never waited for a table. Larger groups sometimes come here for parties and special occasions. We have found the service to be friendly and very efficient. The atmosphere is typical Mexican chain restaurant but nicely done and clean. You immediately get good chips and a selection of Salsa's upon being seated. The house margaritas are actually very good for the price especially happy hour. The menu has the usual mexican dishes that you would expect and combinations. In my opinion much better than a Chi Chi's. It also has other more traditional mexican and even cuban offerings. The food is plentiful and very good. The only slight negative is that you sometimes feel a bit rushed because they are so efficient and probably want to get another seating at your table.
