“Always good food”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Visited the Hot Tamale last night for dinner. Although similar to a fast food arrangement, the food is well prepared and is several steps above similar fast food mexican places. The entire food prep area was clean, and everything was fresh with great customer service.

“A Treat in Canton”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

We look for excuses to drive to Canton so that we can eat at the Hot Tamale. The food is always fresh and the service great. It is a "create your own" Mexican dish restaurant with a huge menu. Sometimes I just get a few sides which is equal to a meal.

“Much better than a chain "taco" restaurant”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Both the food and the prices were better than one can get at any nationally advertised "taco" restaurant. In fact, if you want a quick taco or burrito that has flavor, this is the place.

“Mexican made to your liking”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

This is a great little counter service restaurant with locations in Canton and Potsdam. I love the pico de gallo and often get it loaded on my taco salad or "little earn". Portions are huge so bring your appetite!

“Pretty good food.”
Reviewed August 20, 2011

This is the Subway of Mexican foods. Build your own baby sized buritto with home made salsa, or other canned salsas, add veggies and go. Service was great, food was good, place was clean. Price wasn't too bad either. Would eat here again.
