Had there tamales at a Christmas party. They were so good. I just had to go get me for Christmas dinner. The place is small but smells so good. Next time I go I’ll eat lunch there.

Can't tell you just how good these tamales are! We've served them over & over again---especially when company's coming over. Ask for the rice too. Super easy prep and so delicious.
