This is the place for the best tamales!!!!! I go here often for their tamales and that just about all I've had from here. Not sure about the other menu items though. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for tamales!

This place may be small but the food is awesome!! We ordered our lunch by the pound and were thrilled to see it delivered to the table. This is where the locals go for craw-fish and for good reason.

I frequent this local's hangout each time I'm in Monroe. The crayfish are the best I've ever tasted. They are served in tubs with boiled potatoes and corn on the cob. The place to be.
