Great red chile..enchiladas..mole and burritos and carne. Salsa is fresh and just right..every bit as good as that at the T House. Great breakfast burritos with green and mexican burritos. Plus for those non SW breakfast eaters home made corned beef hash. Outstanding food, fresh and outstanding preparation. A must do if you are in door county

I live in sturgeon bay and this is my favorite place to go for an amazing burrito. I'm a burrito freak and its always perfect here! The salsa is also amazing and the portions are huge. Burritos come with rice and beans so I am always getting a to-go box. owner is always pleasant and accommodating to customer wants. I... More

Oct 11 2013 Lunch: Enchiladas (1 Cheese 1 Shredded beef) I enjoyed my lunch at Hot Tamales on Oak St. near the Maritime Museum in Sturgeon Bay. The atmosphere was friendly as were the other patrons I encountered. My enchiladas were hot and tasty. There could have been less lettuce and more beans on the plate. The shredded beef was... More

We love Mexican food and this place was very good. The portions are huge - the waitress/owner was very friendly and accommodating. The Fried Ice Cream really topped the meal off. We would definitely go there again!!! It is off on a side street so don't miss it when in Sturgeon Bay!! Greet Lisa from Minnesota!!

The whole place was awesome from the paintings on the walls to the excellent service. The costumers in the restaurant all seemed at home. The food was out of the kitchen in record time hot and delicious. I think if anyone gives this place a bad word walked in unwilling to enjoy themselves in the first place. The food is... More

The food is very good - fresh and authentic! The décor is lacking - but hey we don't go out to eat to be impressed by the décor - we're into the taste of the food. The food is delicious - salsas are homemade. Nachos are amazing! The prices are slightly on the higher side if you are used to... More

The outside is deceiving...it looks like a walk-up deli, but it is a cute little Mexican restaurant with delicious food. Most of us had the pulled pork burrito special with various salsas. My mouth was on fire, but I loved it! My non-Mexican food lover was able to get a yummy bacon cheeseburger, and the little guy got chicken tenders,... More

My wife and I wanted some Mexican, so we stopped by this place looking for a good meal. While we expect prices to be a little higher in tourist towns, this place was outrageous! We had already ordered our soda's before looking at the menu. I about choked when I seen the prices. I told the waitress that this place... More

nice people.. just not what I would expect in a Mexican restaurant. and décor was horrible. I don't think I would go back since the quality is not up to par for a Mexican restaurant and the décor sucks.. plus it is way too expensive.
