Growing up in South Texas and spending my summers in Mexico, I find it hard to find good Mexican food. La Bamba has the food that I crave.

Lots of choices on the menu. I opted for a chicken burrito, which came with sides of Mexican rice and refried beans. Salsa and chips were also provided. Very good food at good prices. Service was friendly and efficient.
