I love tamales and had to stop here for lunch. We got here about 2:00 PM on Friday to ensure we were there after lunch rush, we were third in line. First person at the cash register was discussing forgotten tamales in to go order. Second person in line explained they had forgotten one of his tamales. The woman at... More

What could be more relaxing and enjoyable than walking a colorful local car show under near perfect Southern Arizona blue skies on a Saturday morning and then topping it off with a late lunch of delicious tamales at the Tucson Tamale Company ... frequented by persons of every age ... near the University of Arizona campus at Broadway & Tucson...

This is for the Casas Adobes outlet of TTC I went here expecting to get something special. We didn't. First off, they announced they didn't have many things because they had only been open a couple of weeks. So, why open??? Then he announced that had no Spanish rice. "Why?" "We ran out and didn't make anymore." The point of... More

Delicious tamales for all tastes: vegetarian, vegan, for meat lovers and gluten free. I have used them for take out or when I have a work lunch meeting. Individual orders include 2 tamales and a side for less than 10 dollars!

I've never had tamale before, and I'm so glad I came here to try it. Recommended by all my family (who live in Tucson) I had the Santa Cruz tamale, and it was amazing. Succulent, tasty, and reasonably priced, I can see why it is so popular. I'll definitely be back!

One of the highlights of our trip to Tucson. The tamales are amazing, and the food is very fresh and spicy! The rice and beans were also tremendous, and the salsas added the perfect flavoring. It's a casual place, prices are moderate and service is quick. We had lunch there and honestly wanted to go back for dinner before we... More

I bought deal awhile back and realized the last day was upon me so I'd better use it. So, like the multitudes of other procrastinators, I visited Tucson Tamale on Broadway to get my order. I did find the menu a bit confusing but figured I'd get some help figuring it out when I got there, and I was right.... More

I just recently found out about this place in a magazine that I picked up in Tucson about food. They use non gmo corn in all their tamales. They have quite a good selection and the ones we took home were tasty. I'm sure that every time we visit Tucson now we will come back with a bunch in the... More

What nice little find! Not only do they have vegetarian and vegan options but they also are gluten free. Don't judge the food by it's location. It's not the prettiest place but you're going there for the Great Tamales.
