It's hard to say what I like most about Tucson Tamale. Let's say that I went because I love that the owners "do the right thing" and stay connected to the community in meaningful ways. BUT I stay for the amazing variety of Tamales that are made with love and the finest ingredients. The place is not huge on ambiance, but it's always clean, the counter staff is always pleasant and the tamales ROCK.

It's no wonder Tucson Tamale is so popular in our city - there are good choices for vegetarians and vegans, and the tamales always taste fresh. You can find them in local grocery stores too if you prefer to dine at home.

Nice quaint little eatery. A place to go and enjoy the best tamales I have ever had.Choice of 2. I had chicken and pork. They were fresh with a nice amount of filling to masa and flavorful. There are different sides. I had the Rice and beans along with the coleslaw. It was excellent.

Thank you Veronica for allowing me to come in and order close to closing. Service was friendly and the tamales were hot and yummy. I particularly like the Sonoran chicken tamale. Full salsa bar with many options -- from mild to hot. Counter service with several tables. Two tamales, rice, beans, and chips -- I was stuffed....but it was so good, I wanted more!

The tamales are excellent & a big variety of flavors. They ship their tamales anywhere in the US. I highly recommend making a stop at this restaurant.
