La Bamba | Calhoun Construction

La Bamba

Louisville, Kentucky

Brothers Ramiro and Antonio Aguas became frustrated with the lack of quality Mexican food in the Chicago and Champaign areas, so in 1987, they opened their first store. Word spread and La Bamba became a hit.

More stores began opening throughout Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, and Wisconsin, and now, they have 8 stores with family members involved at each location.

Calhoun Construction served as the General Contractor on the demolition and construction of the new La Bamba in Louisville, Kentucky with 2 storefront opportunities in addition to the La Bamba.
