We stopped by an purchased to 2 small Tamales Supremes with onions and jalapeño slices. WOW! We purchased a dozen tamales to take home. We will come back!

Stopped here while passing through on a road trip from AR to FL. Love tamales so decided to give it a try. AWESOME TAMALES! They came out hot and wrapped in newspaper. The nachos were good too. Worth the stop.

I have yet to find a better tamale! The flavor is outstanding! And always hot and fresh! (Unless you ask for frozen... And even those are hand rolled daily.) I personally recommend the TAMALE SUPREME! Sooooooo Goooooood! It is tamales, Refried beans, chili, cheese, onions,...More
