Tamales were gf and were amazing. Nachos were delish. Owners both stopped by to talk to our three kiddos and took an interest in our dietary restrictions. Treated them with chocolate and apple tamales. Who knew dessert tamales were as good as dinner tamales. Amazing....More

We went tonight for the first time and it was great! I had the tommy bowl and the hubby had the burrito. The staff was exceptional too! We were greeted when we walked in and the menu items were explained with recommendations.

The tamales were fresh, but unfortunately so incredibly over the edge salty, they were basically not edible. Tried 3 different versions but all were over the top in sodium. Hopefully, they read reviews and lay off of the salt. Great salsa.
