GREAT experience here- I had tried their tamales from their small spot at City Market, so knew this was worth driving across the city for. The very kind and welcoming lady gave us the whole explanation about all the food, made great recommendations and even brought us a free dessert tamale. Everything was absolutely delicious, tamales were great, and we especially loved the pork tacos. It's cheap, too. A+, definitely intend to return.

Very small place that has a limited menu and limited seating. But very good tamales. They are large and filled with meat. The spicy are really spicy and some of my party had an issue with the spice. There is a board the states how many of each of the different tamales they have left, When there gone there gone for the day. Tacos looked good, but didnt try them. Had guacamole and black beans and rice. No refried beans here. Chips with salsa or queso were also good.

Great, quick Mexican food. Tacos are amazing, tamales too! Chips, salsa and white chip dip are very good as well. Try it if you're in the area.

We stopped in while in Indy and got poblano and cheese, pineapple and raisin, and sweet corn tamales! Fast, affordable, clean, friendly, an amazing place!

The tamale (black bean & cheese) was very bland, even with the wonderful different salsas. Chocolate tamale was pleasant. The black bean taco was very bland. Veggie taco was very good.

I had a fish taco that was excellent. For this item alone my rating would have been a strong five.
