We were looking for something out of the ordinary for dinner. We found this little joint, not knowing it was a chain. The place was empty, service was fine, food was average. The burrito had way too much lettuce, and was light on the meat. A few days prior we ate at a Moe's, got better food and spent less... More

I am the worlds biggest Mexican food fan but this was terrible. I was the only one in there when I went in and that should have been a sign. I had to wait on anyone from the staff to come to the register or kitchen to take my order. Then I gave my order and got whatever they put... More

I only recommend going to La Bamba if you're recovering from drinking late night. The burritos are "as big as your head," but they're not very good and the service is horrible. P.S. Check your drive thru order thoroughly. They ALWAYS get something wrong.
