Big variety to choose from. All good. I thought slightly on the pricey side at $24/dz. Cowboy brisket was my favorite but the pork was also tast.

Good food with great service!! Atmosphere is kinda weird with storage boxes in plain site but if your looking strictly for good food then I recommend this place.

This is the place to get ahead of the Fall and Holiday Tamale rush. They offer a wide variety of flavors and the prices are head to beat

If I have to describe in one line, this should be enough- me and my friends were the only ones in the entire place, the entire time when we were there on prime lunchtime on Friday. Place looks clean and trendy but food is nothing to remember. Two small tamales and a little rice costs you eleven bucks plus tips.... More

I can't believe we haven't been to this place before. The food is incredible but the service you receive is even better. We went in to inquire about a party and ended up staying for two hours! We will be back in a few days.

Many choices to pick from, large tamales though a little expensive. The quality is always good and they are very tasty.

Ordered tamales for Christmas Eve from this place and they were somewhat pricey, but delicious! Chips, rice, and sides all good too. The owner is super-chatty and will catch you up on all the neighborhood gossip.

The tamales are good but expensive. The plate lunches are fun to enjoy in the expanded dining area. The owner is a hoot!

What a charming place! From the service to the food, the experience was fantastic! The homemade salsa and guacamole was some of the best I have ever had. The 3 tamale plate was absolutely delicious and very filling. I am definitely going back to try the ones I missed out on today! Also, try the chicken taco. OMG!!!! You will... More

We are always looking for new places to try Sunday Brunches and had not been to this restaurant before. One of many on the now quirky restaurant row of Magnolia Street. This area has a kind of Austin feel to it and we love exploring the new eateries here. ATMOSPHERE: The interior has an eclectic sort of feel with pale... More
