I ordered a ground beef burrito, which was huge. I also ordered a ground beef taco. I also received a complimentary basket of chips and small dish of fresh, apparently homemade salsa. Both the chips and salsa were delicious, better than average. I thought the menu indicated that all main dishes come with rice and beans. Well, I did receive... More

Been here many times. They have by far the best Mole around this area. Chips, Salsa and bean dip yum. Once I even got a bunch of to go orders for my customers. They did a good job on that and all of my customers liked their food.

Is there such a word as 'super-gringo?' Seriously, this was a choice made to please a large party with varying tastes in Mex fare. Translation....a safe choice. I did not care for it at all, because just about every bite I had was virtually tasteless, including the house salsa which offered no relief. Only a request for a bottle of... More

We enjoy this Mexican restaurant as it is conveniently located for us and the service is quick. Love the bean dip and salsa with chips.

We got tired of going to the same old Mexican restaurants in the Tacoma area so decided to pick a new restaurant from the South Sound edition of the Entertainment Guide and go to La Bamba in Kent. The restaurant is located in a small strip mall next to an Adult Video store (didn't think there were any of those... More

Without hesistation the Server said yes. Upon ordering our food I requested extra spicy. Food was at our table within 10 minutes and they had made it... More

The food was good, but if you're using an entertainment book card they don't honor the full discount that is advertised in the book. The book says "buy a dinner get a dinner free". I only took the card(looks like a credit card) and was only given a 20% discount. It really annoys me when businesses don't want to honor... More

We have been going to La Bamba for the last few years. Compared to the larger mexican places (Azteca, Montezuma, etc), La Bamba is a great deal, and tastes better to boot. He owner is very friendly, portions are large, and the salsa is hot. One caveat, there is not much parking, and the next door neighbor leaves a little... More
