Based on our friends raving reviews of this place, we really looked forward to our visit. Unfortunately the service was poor at best. The food took forever to arrive. Restaurant was less than half full of guests. Even considered paying for the drinks and leaving. We tried the enchilladas with green sauce which were full of chicken but bland. Not... More

Excellent food at a reasonable price. The portions are large. Service was very good and our meals came out quickly. The salsa served with chips was very fresh. Ask for the green sauce if you want something spicy.

Service with a smile and food made with fresh ingredients make this a regular spot for us. The drinks are well done, too. Great spot to meet neighbors and friends, bring the kids, or walk over for date night. Take out has always been hot, fresh, and done quickly.

Fresh chips were served with 3 delicious salsas. The Masa de Puerco was tasty and extremely filling. It came with plantains and very good black beans/rice. A good selection of draft beers.

Mexican food done right. Flavorful, generous portions come out of the kitchen steaming hot. My burro was full of ground beef. My wife's carne assada came out properly cooked. Service is pleasant and prompt.

Very good Mexican with a VERY EXTENSIVE menu. Nice bar in back and an outside patio for dining. My favorite is crab meat filled burido. Chips and salsa on the table from the minute you sit down. Service is very good. About 4 years ago, I made my wife a surprise 60th birthday party (84 people came) and it was... More

Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. The restaurant was clean and... More

La Bamba Mexican & Spanish Restaurants tell the story of the American Dream. In the early 1980's, the Molina Family humbly came from El Salvador to the United States with the dream of making a future for the family. In 1988 the hard work, diligence and dedication paid off as the first restaurant seating 58 people opened in Inverrary, Lauderhill employing most of the 12 brothers and sisters of the Molina Family. Today the Restaurant has 5 locations, (Plantation, Margate, Fort Lauderdale, Delray Beach and North Palm Beach) the largest of which seats 224 people having one brother in the kitchen and one sibling in the dining room of each location.
