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

This is one of the few restaurants in NPB that has actually prospered & grown in business, so it's got to be good. We meet here almost monthly with a large group of people, everyone likes the place, and the service is excellent.

I had the taco dinner which came with 2 tacos, beans and yellow rice. Their 'chunky beef' taco tasted like beef stew in a taco shell. The chips and salsa were ok. Nothing made me go mmm mmm good! Will continue to look for a yummy Mexican restaurant in Palm Beach County.

While on Vacation I was looking for something a bit different than the usual Mexican restaurant . I cam across this gem. Not only was the Mexican food delicious but they had a very large and authentic Spanish menu . I had the Pork carnitas . The pork was moist and just the right spice. The black beans were flavored...

The dinner was not very good. I ordered a Bloody Mary to start, terrible. The service was mediocre at best and the food left a lot to be desired. On top of that I had indigestion all night long.

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.
