“The Chipotle beef is superb!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2010

...a simple Mexican restaurant with great food. The chipotle beef quesadilla comes with a side of rice and salad, and the whole plate goes back licked clean. Really good, inexpensive, authentic Mexican food. Highly recommended!

“Delicious authentic food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2010

Great food, great service! We've never been disappointed. Get Chile Relleno. Yum. When flan is available for dessert, don't pass it up. It's wonderful. The guacamole is delicious, but too expensive ($8 for a small bowl). The Margaritas are terrific. They are not the slushy kind. They are shaken, so you taste all the tequila goodness!

“Best Mexican food I've had other than when I was in Mexico!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2009

This restaurant is a bit out of the way, but not difficult to find by any means. It is small, but the service is fast so people are in and out fairly quickly and the wait to be seated is never too long (we were told 15 minutes at our last visit, and were seated within 5 minutes). The food is seriously good and the people that work there are awesome. Just a note - we noticed a sign saying they closed at 8pm when we were there on a Thursday, so they do close earlier than some restaurants. It may be best to call to confirm their hours.
If you have a craving for Mexican dishes, head to Le Bamba - you won't be disappointed!
