La Bamba is a very popular place so expect to wait to be seated because they do not take reservations unless you are a group of eight or more. Also, you probably will have to wait for the your meal. Since the place is basically one large room, the noise level is high. In addition, there is a small self... More

Wonderful Mexican and Spanish dishes. I have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The sirloin steak with a cheese enchiladas,re fried beans and rice is my favorite. The steak is always tender, juicy and flavorful. The chicken Pollack plan yo is great but, then again, everything I have had here I has been very good to excellent.

Waited for 30 minutes to get a table. Got seated and it took 15 minutes to get a waiter to come to the table. He took our drink order and it took another 15 minutes to get our drink. We ordered our meal and sat there for 1 HOUR and 10 minutes to get our food. Our waiter during that... More

Topped with cooked onions. The flavors of lime and cilantro come shining through and accompanied by rice with black beans and plantains this was a winner all... More

We have been here many times. Food is always good. Steaks come out as ordered and have a great flavor. The other dishes are also excellent. No hesitancy to recommend this restaurant. Valet parking is free but a gratuity is expected. My wife always orders Pollack ala plancho and I usually get a steak. Their tacos, enchiladas and fajitas are... More

we stopped by this place as it is right around the corner from our condo and were pleasantly suprised as the burrito was one of the best i have ever had. We sat at the bar and the service was excellent. We will be back for sure.

From one of our customers: "The BEST mexican restaurant in South Florida. I've lived in LA for almost 10 years now, but every time I come back home to South Florida I make a trip (or 2, or 5) to La Bamba. it's not fancy, the flavors aren't complex or master-chefish...but it's still AWESOME. It's delicious comfort food. Every meal doesn't have to confuse the hell out of your taste buds, sometimes just having good, wholesome, cheesy, mexican food hits the spot. If you're looking for South Florida's best casual mexican spot - this is it."
