Best tamales we ever had... hands down. All the food is authentic and service friendly. Very little seating or parking but who cares?

This was Plan B today after Plan A didn't work out. We should've just come here first. It's always excellent, fresh food and great service. Tamales are the best you'll find anywhere! Menudo is always good too. Haven't tried breakfast here but it's on the menu.

The tamales here are fantastic! We buy them by the dozen, eat some and freeze the rest. We had lunch in the restaurant once, and it was good, but not amazing.

Authentic Mexican food in a tiny, tidy place in Wildomar. Their tamales are the best around and the Asada and carnitas dishes are excellent as well as all the salsas. Friendly service and consistent quality food makes this a great option.

Those are the best tamales EVER! This place is literally a hole in the wall. But you can imagine it being featured on one of those traveling food tv shows. It's VERY clean inside, very well cared for. The menu includes every traditional Mexican item, although I unequivocally recommend the tamales. There large, perfectly supple, well flavored, and come with... More

A few years ago, a cousin visited from Florida, and we had take-out tamales for dinner. Her sister was here today from Texas, and the Florida sister told her to be sure to get tamales. We had lunch at the restaurant; as usual, the food was fresh, flavorful - fantastic! Since we were there last, the decor has been greatly... More

This place has the best tamales made fresh daily. At the holidays they are very busy with all the orders. It is a small place on a busy corner but it is worth it. Good pork, beef, chicken and fruit flavor.

I went in to pick up tamales, and stayed for lunch! What a great idea! I had the taco/enchilada plate. It was fabulous! See the picture - doesn't it make your mouth water? I visit this restaurant about once a month. The food is always fresh and hot. The staff are very friendly. The store is clean and well-kept. Whenever... More
