The tamales were just okay. I have had a better. The fillings were a bit skimpy. The restaurant is tucked in the corner of a strip mall. The staff was nice at the counter. They had four types: chicken, beef, pork and green chili/corn. You pick up tamales from the counter where they are kept in a warming bin.

This place was recommended by a friend. It is located in an old strip plaza. The restaurant is small with seating for about 20. Menu is limited, but you are here for the tamales. Ordered one of each: beef, pork, chicken and green chili. Beef and pork are red sauce and the chicken comes with green chili. Needless to say... More

Best tamales this side of the border. This little place is located in a small strip mall and hard to locate, but it's worth it. Restaurant itself is nothing to write home about. Plain fast-food decor, but clean. The charm of this place is the food. Excellent all around. There is often a line out the door on the weekends... More
