We ordered two supposedly “burritos as big as your head” and this is what we got...this entire meal came out to $30 definitely not as big as my head and definitely not worth it.

I grew up eating here so it's great to come back place the usual order and it's consistent. Plus they recognize you. Good times! Never go wrong with some Bambas. Day, night, or early morning!

I used to live in Bloomington and Labamba was my most favorite place to eat and although this one was in a different city, they absolutely did not fail to disappoint! I feel as though their location is keeping them a bit hidden. You cannot see them from the main road but if you're only visiting then open your Google maps and head to Labamba! I could try to describe the food but I probably wouldn't ever run out of words...just let the taste speak for itself!!! Staff were very pleasant gentlemen as well!

Yummy! The food is as good as ever. Disappointed with the new lg. Cups (or Xtra lg. maybe) I expected the normal plastic La Bamba cups but instead i got a too large very flimsy cup that had to be held to not spill. Foods great but go back to the other cups! If it ain't broke don't fix it!

Not happy with this service!! I only come here because it was my fathers favorite place before he passed...... and the service just seems to be getting worse! I spent $25 and ordered 6 steak tacos. I received 3 chicken.. and wait for it.... a taco with beans and lettuce. How could you not realize your putting beans and lettuce on a taco???? Then when I called back they acted like they had no idea who we were and we came to a different la Bambas. WILL NOT EVER RETURN!

Could be better if they didn't place the lettuce tomatoes onion on the burritos until after the burrito has been warmed on the grill. soggy produce...yuck! Other than that, the food is really good and authentic.

Been coming to this location for the last 20 years. Food is always consistent and flavorful. My kids love the fact they've added ice cream to the menu. Everything is solid but I'd recommend the nachos or quesadillas with steak.

Great big burritos just the way you like them. Their Horchata is thick and so creamy! Their hot sauce is an amazing addition to their burritos. They have $0.99 ground beef tacos as a daily special!! Their super nachos are amazing as well! I highly recommend this place, and stop here multiple times when I come home for a visit.

My first time visiting and I can't wait to come back! The food is prepared as you check out. Fast friendly service. Clean restaurant.My regular chicken burrito was very big. Easily enough to eat for lunch without sides. Very good flavor. The salsa was excellent too.Pepsi products and they take credit cards.

Little bit of nostalgia but still good. This place was great in 1990s. Tasted the same and brought back good memories. People nice but may not appeal fully to the miriad of options that millennials have gotten used to. Worth a visit.

Love this place! I ordered a mini burrito - which I do every time - can't go wrong. The food is always good. Same cook for the last 8-9 years. You have to love continuity. Will always go back to La Bambas to eat.

Horrible customer service with the later night crew!!! My whole order was completely wrong and they were the RUDEST about it and said that I was wrong and “there's nothing we can do”. Not even if I came back tomorrow with my receipt to show that they made the WRONG food.

Worse place. Im from texas so i always strive to find authentic mexican food. I could have honestly made the same food at home but better. Way too pricey for what the food is worth. My first time there cause i was curious and i work across the street. The food was not home made even though the cashier said the quality of the food is worth the price. Yeah right.

The food here is so good, best burrito in town. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I work 3rd shift in town and on multiple occasions I have gone up there between 1:15am and 1:30 and they were already closed, even though their hours say their open until 2am.

The food still has that same great taste, it just seems like they give less meats in burritos,than in the past and with the prices going up,it seems like every time we go there

The service was quick. Though I was the only person in there. The price seems pretty typical, except those 1 dollar tacos were a bit of a draw. I am not sure that the burrito was as big as my head ;)

La Bamba is a fast-food standby from my college days. The burritos big as your head are really big, but by no means is it awesome Mexican food. They're aiming more for fast and filling.

Placed an online order via EatStreet, I arrived after it was supposedly ready only to be told (very rudely) by the man behind the counter that they "never received the order." He then ignored me for a moment before (again, rudely) asking me what I wanted. I simply left and went to Maize instead
