My husband and I thought this place sounded very interesting so we went in. We ordered a dozen hot tamales and a beverage! The tamales were SO good! The staff was very nice and friendly! Good choice :)

We just couldn't resist Fat Mama's, home of the 'Knock you naked Margarita'. The Margaritas were good and the tamales were wonderful, though a small order was plenty. The wild colors, especially in the bathroom were lively.

The atmosphere was great and the decor was super cute! I have a feeling that most people are there for the margaritas. Unfortunately, we don’t drink so I can’t say. However, the food was ok. The tamales were definitely not the best I’ve ever had....More

This is a laid back, very casual place. Order at the counter and they’ll bring your food out in about 2 minutes. Great margaritas, and the roast beef po-boy was excellent. The tamales were average but not bad. Overall a fun place to hang out.
