    Honey bee's cheese/jalapeño tamales served with their salsa are one of my favorite foods ever. Homemade guacamole and salsa are fantastic. Support this local business.

    Dont pass go before picking up their freshly made salsa, guacamole, tortilla chips, and sour cream. And maybe a piñata. Ask for Andrew or Juan if you have produce questions..
