It's been years since we ate here. I suggested picking up some food to my wife La Bamba. We had the quesadilla and Costillas de Puerco. The chops were great and the quesadilla was loaded with cheese. Glad we tried it again!

Had one of our best meals while in Florida at LaBamba. We ordered the fajitas (seafood and chicken) which were excellent. The portions were plenty and the price was on point. Enjoyed 1/2 price margaritas!!

Went to my favorite Mexican restaurant -LaBamba- for a tuna melt. Not exactly a traditional Mexican dish but the tuna, cheese, tomato and onion melted inside a tortilla is perfection! Dip it in taco sauce and there is nothing like it! Dessert (shared by three) was an Apple Buritto served with two large scoops of homemade vanilla ice cream, whipped... More

Great food . We got in just before closing. The staff was friendly and helpful. Complementary chips and salsa at the table right away. My husband had fajitas combo streak and chicken. The seasoning was perfect. I had enchiladas with chicken beans and rice. The beans were topped with cheese and were tasty. We had the apple burrito for dessert... More

Based on our friends raving reviews of this place, we really looked forward to our visit. Unfortunately the service was poor at best. The food took forever to arrive. Restaurant was less than half full of guests. Even considered paying for the drinks and leaving. We tried the enchilladas with green sauce which were full of chicken but bland. Not... More

Excellent food at a reasonable price. The portions are large. Service was very good and our meals came out quickly. The salsa served with chips was very fresh. Ask for the green sauce if you want something spicy.

Service with a smile and food made with fresh ingredients make this a regular spot for us. The drinks are well done, too. Great spot to meet neighbors and friends, bring the kids, or walk over for date night. Take out has always been hot, fresh, and done quickly.
