Taqueria La Bamba is a mexican restaurant off of riverside drive in mt vernon. On the walls there are spanish beer posters and advertisements, there is an abundance of seating inside the restaurant and there is always music playing. My personal favorite item to get on the menu is the burrito which comes with so much meat on the inside that you cannot close the tortilla, if you order your food ‘for here’ they bring you out a tray of five sauces that range in spice, two of my favorites are the salsa and the spicy chile sauce. The prices of the food are very reasonable for the amount of food you get: around $10 for a very large burrito that comes with lettuce tomato and sour cream on the side and about $1.50 for a taco, I would say that Taqueria La Bamba is one of the better mexican restaurants I have eaten at.
At Taqueria La Bamba the service is very good because there is not a lot of it, you order at the front and pay before you receive your meal so that when you are done, you just have to get up and leave, this format is perfect for a nice quiet lunch with a friend, coworker, date, or family member. At La Bamba there is a wide selection of drinks both non alcoholic and alcoholic although I did not order any alcoholic beverages during the times I ate there.
Taqueria La Bamba meets all my food needs but the location is tucked away and the parking lot is very small so over all I give the restaurant an 8 out of 10 and I highly recommend my readers eat there on there time off.
