Tamales and more tamales! Every kind imaginable. I had two vegetarians in my group and they had no problem finding a tamale for them. They had trouble deciding which type to get. They are available to go also. Definitely a must!

I enjoyed the food. It was a clean dining area, the line moved fast. The selection was really good. The tamales were quite large. The quality was some of the best I have had.

I can not begin to describe how much I enjoyed this awesome little restaurant! The tamales and black beans were extremely tasty and might be the best I've ever eaten. If you are in Tucson you must go enjoy the food like I did.

Limited basic beer and wine menu but enough choices to be acceptable. The place is small and not fancy so not an extensive wine list. Worth the trip for the tamales though and I'm sure you can find a beer or wine that will... More

Have the traveler google Tucson Tamale's menu. I did have the pumpkin tamales and the one I had was a vegetable one--squash. I don't remember other than these that I sampled.
