I visited this restaurant with my wife and daughter. The food was very good and big portions. The service was very good also and I was surprised when I received the bill of just $25. I definitely will be there again and I recommend this place to any one in the area. You will love it.

My mom and I ate here one Sunday for lunch. They have a large Sunday after church crowd, but they are able to serve you quickly, and with no problem. I love Mexican food, and this is a great place, right up the road from my house.

I've eaten here for over 10 years (there are two in Florence). Others can't compare. A Texan knows Mexican food.

I did not expect much being that this was in Florence, I ordered the LaBamba Monster Burrito. In addition to being very large it was rather tasty.

This is an average Restaurant featuring Mexican type food. The portions are large...price is good, the food is bland. The service is good. The margaritas are the worst, all you taste is MIX. The margarita prices are cheap which is a reflection of the lack of Tequila. Great family place, but not for me!

La Bamba always has great service and great food at both their Second loop location and their location near the Florence Civic Center. I recently had the Texas Fajita lunch menu item. The shrimp was fresh, the steak was tender, and the chips and salsa were plentiful. Service, as always, was attentive.

I went for a late dinner after movies. The service was great, however, I ordered the Molcajete because I wanted the spicy, delish flavor. I received a huge mortar with lots of zucchini?...some shrimp and chicken. No beef. When inquiring about the beef and spiciness I was told that I had to ask for it. The ambiance of the restaurant...

Greeted quickly and professionally with a smile. Let me sit where I wanted to watch the NFL draft, but it wasn't busy because I ate before the dinner rush. Was open to me ordering what I wanted and I got exactly what I asked for (beef burrito with enchilada sauce and melted, shredded cheese on top, lettuce and tomato and... More
