This local place is a hidden gem. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. The parking is difficult but you can definitely find street parking. If you like watching sport events, there are tvs everywhere. Give this place a try. It won't be a secret for long.

Great restaurant, great food! It's a bit off the beaten path, that is to say, it's located in a Burbank neighborhood rather than an outlet center or shopping/food area. But they have an EXTENSIVE menu and nearly everything on it is good (avoid the fish unless you like reheated frozen product). It's an outdoor restaurant, so make sure you go... More

This is the kind of place where you can drop in as you are and still enjoy a freshly made, tasty, full meal or snack. We were there for lunch and enjoyed Cuban sandwiches and fish tacos from their extensive menu. They also have specials available. The service was very good -- attentive and ready to provide refills. The meal... More

My parents and I first found this restaurant after a cruise to the Caribbean, and we were delighted with it. I was back in Burbank in October, and went back--every bit as good as I remembered! Many good dishes--my favorite is the La Bamba plate, pulled pork, saffron rice and black beans. They also have tropical fruit shakes. This is... More

I've never had Caribbean/ Cuban food before so when a coworker recommended La Bamba's I was excited for the opportunity to try something new. This place is amazing! It's situated on the corner of what I assume was a house at one time, it's not very big, but they did an amazing job getting people sat. The food was simply... More

I have been eating here since I used to drive trucks. Good black beans and yellow rice. They were putting black beans in a burrito long before food chains. I only come here every now and then because it's so far but will eat here every time I am in town.
