Mayan Cafe, as its name suggests, reflects the culinary heritage of the Mayan culture.

Some of the specialties include Sikil Pak (pumpkin seed dip) and the Yucatec Salbutes which are tiny corn tortillas topped with turkey, chicken, pork, shredded cabbage and/or other various eclectic toppings.
La Bamba is renowned in Louisville for serving "burritos bigger than your head" and while they don't literally reach these proportions, they come awfully close. One burrito could feed two or three people. The exterior of La Bamba resembles a revamped fast food joint, but diners say that even though the food is served fast, it doesn't taste like fast food. The food is authentically Mexican and La Bamba is open late, so it's a popular place for bar hoppers to check out after last call.
