Update July 2012: The campus location (as well as the chain’s other locations) have closed. They will definitely be missed!
Update: The Georgesville Rd. location has closed, but you can still get La Bamba at their OSU Campus location.
I have a confession to make. I have become a burrito junkie. I make my poor husband stop nearly every night on his way home to buy me a burrito. Not just *any* burrito. The king of burritos. A burrito AS BIG AS MY HEAD (no, I’m not kidding).
At $6.97 (adjusted for the price of extra avocado and sour cream, natch), La Bamba‘s Jumbo Burrito is a deal of epic proportions. Chock full of flavorful pork, rice, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado, sour cream and salsa verde, it is heaven in a wrapper. It makes Chipotle look like mass produced flavorless crap. They take the whole thing and then grill it before wrapping it in foil, making sure that it arrives at your destination (or table, if you’re eating in) piping hot.
Until recently, the only La Bamba outpost was on campus. Recently, they opened up a store on the west side on Georgesville Rd, up by Old Sullivant. Visit. Visit soon. Visit often. You know you want to.
La Bamba has 2 Ohio locations:
West Side – 421 Georgesville Rd, Cols. 614.586.0693 *CLOSED*
OSU Campus – 1956 N. High St, Cols. 614.294.5004
