My parents and I first found this restaurant after a cruise to the Caribbean, and we were delighted with it. I was back in Burbank in October, and went back--every bit as good as I remembered! Many good dishes--my favorite is the La Bamba plate, pulled pork, saffron rice and black beans. They also have tropical fruit shakes. This is... More

I've never had Caribbean/ Cuban food before so when a coworker recommended La Bamba's I was excited for the opportunity to try something new. This place is amazing! It's situated on the corner of what I assume was a house at one time, it's not very big, but they did an amazing job getting people sat. The food was simply... More

I have been eating here since I used to drive trucks. Good black beans and yellow rice. They were putting black beans in a burrito long before food chains. I only come here every now and then because it's so far but will eat here every time I am in town.

Good informal eating. Runned by young owners. Great place to have a cold beer and a sandwich. Hot plates are served plentifully and the service is above average.

Located on a corner on Glenoaks Blvd., parking is on the street. Basically outdoors there is some indoor seating. Most people prefer the outdoor seating. The menu is larger than you would expect. Of the many selections I always pick the Cuban sandwich with garlic fries. A server comes to your table and takes your order. Around lunchtime it can... More

Recently, I made a trip to Burbank. Knowing I would be arriving at the airport at 8:30pm, I researched ahead of time to find some nearby restaurants that would be open. La Bamba was open until 10pm on Friday, my arrival day. When i checked their website, the food looked great. The hundreds of positive yelp reviews were encouraging as... More

LOVE this place and go there often. Everyone is wonderful there & totally accommodating. The garlic shrimp burrito is divine. So is the iced melon green tea. We've tried almost everything on the menu and have yet to find something we don't like. Delicious and always fun to be there. GO!

The food here was bland, mostly tasteless, and hardly resembled any Cuban or Caribbean food I have ever experienced. Additionally, it is overpriced for what it is.
