good tamales

i love tamales and these are good. We tried the pork and chicken. They tasted pretty similar and we liked both. They are large and very filling. Not cheap, but good.

This is a place to buy and eat tamales, or to take them with you and eat them later. This is a place to go out of your way to get the tamales. I went to Ojai once, liked it, but frankly I felt it was a "one visit" place for me. Not because it's not worthy, on the contrary,... More

Last weekend, my husband and I stopped to purchase a dozen tamales (4 beef, 4 chicken, 2 sweet corn and 2 pineapple) with green sauce to take home with us. All four flavors taste really good. I think I have a new favorite in the sweet corn tamale and also the pineapple tamale!! The service is good at this restaurant.... More

Salsa was also good. Skip the beans and rice. Service was friendly, helpful and efficient. Limited seating outside.

We love a great tamale and a good tamale is hard to find. But the gems at this little place don't disappoint. Tucked back in the corner of a little strip mall, they offer a small but delicious selection of tamales and gorditos. There's only a small seating area, so it's better to load up and head over to the... More
