NORTH PALM BEACH, Florida (SOUTH FLORIDA WEEKEND) - If you’re looking for authentic Mexican and Spanish cuisine in South Florida, look no further than La Bamba! The family-owned restaurant has six locations.
La Bamba has been open in South Florida since 1988. The South Florida Weekend team went to check out the North Palm Beach location which opened its doors in 2008.
“We’re a family owned business,” said J.R. Molina. “It’s my dad and his brothers, and sisters actually. My dad is one of thirteen, so he has a brother or a sister or two at each location and then all my cousins as well, at every location you’ll find a family member for sure.”
What makes La Bamba unique is that they serve both Mexican and Cuban dishes, so there’s a little something for everyone.
“We have Mexican dishes ranging from fajitas, enchiladas, tacos, and our Cuban dishes we have dishes like our signature dish pollo a la plancha, rojo vieja, the list goes on,” said Molina.
The restaurant offers lunch and dinner daily, a great happy hour with drink specials, and hot, fresh tortilla chips and salsa that greet you as soon as you sit down.
“Our chips and salsa we make in house daily,” he said. “We start by frying our chips, batches of fresh tortilla chips, and then followed by making our fresh salsa by scratch with fresh ingredients daily.”
La Bamba is the place to be if you’re on the hunt for a delicious meal, refreshing drinks, and a family-friendly atmosphere. Plus, it’s the perfect environment to celebrate milestones and enjoy time with friends and family.
“We love it, we’re essentially all family,” said Molina. “We treat our customers like family and just to see them having a good time whether they’re celebrating a birthday or a graduation...we had a proposal a couple weeks ago outside, which was pretty neat but we really enjoy seeing everyone having a good time enjoying the restaurant.”
So why choose La Bamba? According to Molina, it’s pretty simple.
“You’re going to get a quality product that we offer here with quality ingredients,” he said. “As well as we give our best service we can, and if you like Mexican and Cuban food, this is the spot.”
