Extremely popular Mexican restaurant always busy. The food choices are familiar to everybody who loves Mexican food. The Fajitas sizzling on the skillet is my favorite you can have it with Mexican sides or Cuban rice an beans

This authentic and very popular restaurant is a hot spot for Mexican and Spanish cusine! Huge menu. We love the Chicken Flautas Rancheros, and the Mexican Pizza. Service is fast and efficient. Usually a 30 min wait to be seated. The bar is small but they make great drinks!!

We have been fans of all LaBamba location in So Florida for many years. The main thing was that the food was so good it was like every bite was the first bite. On the recent trip I noticed the menu had been compressed from the legacy huge fan-fold encyclopedia to a crisp lean laminated deal. No worries, as my... More

Try not to fill up on the chips and dip 'cause your serving will probably be huge!! We got there a bit early, 5:00, seated immediately. Our waiter was a bit off the wall and he did get my order wrong but it all worked out. He even had the cooks add a few carrot shavings to our salads to... More

I'm from Texas and I rarely eat Mexican food outside of my home state. So when a fellow Texan now relocated to Florida suggested this place, I was hopeful. No disappointment here. If I'd been blindfolded and brought here, I'd think I was at a place back in San Antonio. The chips and salsa were wonderful. My beef taco was... More
