“One of the stalwarts of the Natchez scene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

The tamales, margaritas and beer are all good. There's seating inside and out in a location that's a fairly quintessential part of a town that's a little bit New Orleans, a little bit Mississippi Delta and all about something cold to drink.

“Best tamales I've ever had...really!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Very simple place. Just good food. We went about 4 in the afternoon, so it wasn't too busy; which we liked.
