One of the best Mexican restaurants on the city. It's in a bit of an odd location but the drive is worth it. A group of four of us went and everyone enjoyed the food throughly. They also start the table off with complimentary chips and salsa which was a nice surprise. It is a smaller restaurant with not many... More

Enjoyed a casual supper with friends. Arrived at 530pm and the place was near pack. There is only about 10 tables in there so either arrive early or try and make a reservation. The service was very prompt and friendly. The menu is large so plenty to chose from. I had the chicken tacos with rice and beans. It was... More

Never eaten here before, but today a friend took me there and it was awesome! It's authentic Mexican food and it's well done (not easy to find both in the prairies). The staff is friendly and the service is really fast- it took 5 minutes to get both of our dishes. The decor is pretty fun. Genuine items from down... More

Don't let the tiny space and modest decor fool you. The food and service here are very good. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. If you have questions they will take the time to explain. The rice and refried beans are soooo good!

I came to La Bamba for my 30th birthday with my wife. It was busy on a Thursday night, but we didn't have to wait to be seated and looked after. I've been to La Bamba in the past (3 years ago or so). They've been around for several years now in Saskatoon and their great food (Chipotle enchilada) and... More
