    Everything I've had I really liked, sadly I have yet to order the tamales though I hear really good things about them. I eat here 2-3 a week for breakfast so I can say it's pretty solid!

    Menudo, carnitas, handmade tamales, gorditas, come once hooked for life. Pretty tasty and authentic Mexican food. Flour tortilla not good in my opinion tho.

    Prices went up on the tamales!! Guess we'll have to start looking to buy closer to home or making our own again. 12. 99 is not worth the drive. Smh, greedy.

    They take cash only,but they have an ATM inside. They have good hot sauce & they give you a lot of meat on your tacos. Good food outdoor eating

    The homemade tortillas and hand-rolled tamales are out of this world! The tamales are perfectly plump and filled with just the right amount of savory pork.

    Their homemade tamales are great. And they are friendly. They carried my tamales to the car for me. They are open tomorrow Christmas Day until 2pm.

    Pork & Chicken tamales are simply the best in town. Make sure they are homemade not machine made. Big difference!

    The homemade chicken tamales are the way to go. Green sauce is milder than the red sauce. Best tamales in town... You're welcome.
