Have been going here for years and we have always been pleased. Whether you are in the mood for Mexican or Spanish dishes they do both equally well. The beer is cold and the variety of margaritas are all excellent. Love the chips & salsa they give you went you are first seated. Order the guacamole as it is always... More

Going to La Bamba is never my choice. I really think their chips and salsa are just okay. I split an order of fajitas with a friend and they were okay. Nothing to write home about, just okay. As for the salsa, again, just okay. When I want Mexican, I go to Ole Ole and when I want Cuban, I... More

This place has good food most of the time although I did get severe food poisoning there a year ago. The one thing they lack that every mexican restaurant should have is white queso!

So much food! Too much food! You have to take it home. The menu is Mexican and Spanish and there is a large selection. The hubbies are Cuban and from Dominican Republic and they both agreed that their picadillo and Ropa Viejo tasted authentic. My chicken and steak fajita was very tasty. Price is reasonable and service was very good.... More
