This is a tamale house with extras. It is best enjoyed with friends. The tamales are great but I always get the gringos pie. With a beer it's about $10. Not into tamales, they have poboys.

We ordered Natchoes and they forgot about us. There was really no one else there so really no excuse. The food was good but we felt as if we were disturbing their chatting.
