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!

If you will notice the top of the page says Southside Coney Island NOT RIverside Coney Island. PLEASE pay attention to what restaurant you are doing a review and giving a bad score too!!! ONLY Riverside Coney Island sells Crawfish which is very good in my opinion! Southside Coney Island is the BEST place for Chili dogs and Tamales. It... More

Went in on a weekday night, and had to ask a waitress to wait on us after about a ten minute wait. Seemed like a small party at the register. The food was delicious, but everything was ala cart. Want tartar sauce or cocktail sauce with your shrimp or crawfish? Extra. Butter? Extra. Refill on soft drink? Extra. Will I... More

Went here for lunch around 2:15 pm. There were about 6 other people there and most were already eating. The waitress, one of two there, stopped and asked us if we were ready to order. We ordered drinks and asked for a menu. She brought us drinks and that's it. 15 minutes later and we still had no menu. We... More

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.
