“Best tamales I've ever had...really!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.

Get the Gringo Pie, a must try if you like jalepenos, chili, and tamales, with diced raw onions

“Good food/ nice outdoor patio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Visted in June for dinner after 7.30 pm. Not real busy at that time, doesn't appear to be a hangout for drinking crowd despite good prices on beers and margarita's. We ordered tameles and spicy pickles ! Both were very good. service was fast/ you pay and pick up your food at the counter,same for drinks.great choice for a quick / cheap meal!
