We weren't sure about this place but what a delight! Delicious tamales wrapped in newspaper. Quick, courteous service! And the place was super clean! No place to sit down, all to go. Excellent choice for a quick meal!

I am not qualified to assess how good the tamales are, but I liked them. The restaurant has no interior seating, and is more of a drive-up than anything. The price was good for what you got, and it is listed as a spot on...More
