They forgot our order, didn't seem to care. Run by teenagers just hanging in the restaurant with their mates, no customer service at all. Avoid if you are hungry.

For 12 pesos you can get a variety of different types of tasty tamales. We even had a chocolate one for dessert. There are only 3 tables here so it is more of a take out place. No english spoken here.
