Not beautiful from the outside but the food is good! My favorite is the "camarones al mojo de ajo"!! Everyone in my family loves to dip their chips in the sauce too!

I don't normally review places, but I am super upset by my last visit here. My friend and I went to what used to be my favorite restaurant recently. It was super slow so service should have been pretty quick. It wasn't. When I ordered...More

Near my home, I am surrounded by many wonderful Mexican restaurants. So, if I'm eating at a Mexican restaurant while I'm on travel, it must be pretty special. The food at La Bamba is fresh and so flavorful. The mole is amazing.

The service is very fast and we each ordered a meal and it all came very quickly and the food was stellar! Everything was great and the service was fantastic. If your looking for delicious Mexican food, this is the place.

First visit and we plan to return. A very extensive menu with a large selection of seafood. Emphasis on mole (Oaxacan) and Yucatan dishes. Great house Margarita and very friendly servers. We'll be back.

Great people, well-constructed menu and hard to beat prices. They work hard to please and always have interesting specials. Their Tequila selection is also robust enough for anyone's tastes.

So go for the excellent friendly staff, the coconut flan, the margaritas and the mole. If you love Frida, bonus! Also! Ask for a vegetarian menu. Even though I eat meat I have tried many of the dishes on that menu and they were all...More

We come here quite often, and love the food and drinks. But what we like best is how the people who work there make you feel. I've been in food and beverage for 25 years and it's just real nice to go somewhere that still...More
