Our granddaughter was visiting, she has Tamales on a regular basis so she was excited to bring us here. She loved them so much she's asked for us to send them for her birthday, and said they have ruined tamales for her back in Michigan...More

If you are craving for quick and fresh tamale.. spicy Spanish rice.. some chips and salsa then this is the place to visit. Menu is good and food is tasty. Only thing some of the take away Tamale options are not available for dine in.

I stopped here while I was traveling across the country. Everything was absolutely delicious including the sides. I had the red chili beef tamales with Spanish rice and pinto beans. I highly recommend.

We ordered 4 tamale meals and they were delicious. Would happily have a Tucson Tamale near my home in NC! We were traveling through the area and very glad to stop here. Good food, friendly service, fairly quick, good value. Yum!

We stopped here for lunch because my husband loves tamales. He was not disappointed!!! They were some of the best he has eaten. He loved the masa and the pork filling. We will definitely stop here again when we come to Tucson.

It's hard to say what I like most about Tucson Tamale. Let's say that I went because I love that the owners "do the right thing" and stay connected to the community in meaningful ways. BUT I stay for the amazing variety of Tamales that...More
