Reviewed 15 July 2017

This is a very unique place. It is a Mexican place with a sushi bar. Both styles of food are delicious. Also the prices make it easy to try lots of what is on the menu. It is scary to try sushi from a Mexican restaurant, but you should you won't regret it.

This is one of my all-time favorites places to eat over the past 2- years. The restaurant is nothing special decor-wise, but the food is fresh, made to order, fast, and excellent every time. Be prepared to get your hands messy. They added an entire sushi menu about 2 years ago and it is made fresh to order and EXCELLENT!

I have been to the Cham - Bana locations but not here.The sushi looks good and is offered at a good price.With a wide variety of rolls,soup,etc. I was in the mood for tacos and ordered the taco special. 2 tacos, tomale,and beans and rice.the tacos were soft corn with 2 tortillas each.
Real good.The salsa is mild or hot. I thought the rice was really good. Tues and Sunday's,The tacos are 1.25.ground beef.
I will return.The service is fast and friendly. They share a bathroom with other businesses.

I have been a fan of La Bamba since the first one opened over 20 years ago in champaign. Authentic Mexican food, made by, and owned by Mexicans. Big monster super burritos, and delicious taco's are a great filler after a hard night of charging. The bbq chicken super is what I get every single time and it tastes great.
