“great Mexican food at a good price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2014

went out to dinner with friends and I had never been to La Bamba in Plantation. Was seated right away, margaritas were spot on and of course the chips were fantastic. I had the chicken fajitas and there was more than enough to take home for lunch the next day. They were extremely tasty that evening and the next day also. I highly recommend la Bamba for good Mexican food at a reasonable price.

“One of the better Mexican restaurants in South Florida”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

We've never had bad service at La Bamba. The portions are large. The chips and salsa are homemade. The main courses are large and consistently good and everything is fresh. I highly recommend La Bamba.

“Neighborhood Mexican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014 via mobile

Big portions. Good food. Big menu. Surprisingly few Hispanics eating here. Reasonably priced beer. Expensive margaritas except for the house special. Excellent plantains. Most dishes can be shared. Tables a bit too close together. Good efficient friendly service.

The chips and salsa are one of the best in town. The combination plates are all excellent. There was one person in our party of 5 who was not fully satisfied. But rest of were very satisfied. Highly recommend.
