La Bamba Restaurant, a 1950’s dining experience

Article by Jim Moore

Owners, William and Susan Fekete pride themselves on the quality of the food, service, cleanliness and even the hot water in the banos sinks.

They make everything they can “homemade” including breakfast jams, fresh fruit pies, puddings, ice cream and cookies. They also make all of their “side” items in small batches to ensure freshness and quality - things like potato salad, coleslaw & mash potatoes with gravy.

Most known in the area for two things, their great American- style breakfast served all day and their daily ‘Blue Plate Specials’. Breakfasts includes choices hard to find in the Baja, like potatoes instead of beans, seven types of juices, several choices of toast or biscuits, corned beef hash, grits, sausage gravy, (real pork sausage, not hot dogs) and everything is prepared to order, not off a steam table.

The daily “Blue Plate Specials” change on a monthly basis and include good American comfort food such as Chicken & Dumplings, Meatloaf, Stuffed Pork Chops, as well as foreign dishes such as Pork Schnitzel, Chicken Paprikash, and even an occasional Asian dish like Mongolian Beef.

William and Susan take very good care of their employees and as a result, their employees are dedicated and hard working, taking care of us in return. They do their best to put a smile on everyone’s face.

Stop by “La Bamba’s” at km 29.5 on the free road in Rosarito and let them put a 50’s diner smile on your face
