I spotted happy hour tacos at 4pm and couldn’t resist a sangria and a light bite of food. Both came with good speed by happy staff. I inquired about the hot sauce ( house made) and managed to acquire my own batch from the boss himself. It’s fantastic and I’ll definitely return for more of the great food and service

Fantastic happy hour specials.
Friendly and attentive staff.
Delicious, fresh Mexican food however it is on the more expensive side. It is the quality rather than the quantity that is reflected in the prices.
High chairs available as well as a complimentary colouring in/activity page for kids with crayons provided.
Would recommend to friends and eat here again.

Wait staff were nice and service was quick. Good range of gluten free food. Kids had about 4 options. Meals were rather large. Nice choice of cocktails. Nice family night out.

Went to Hot Tamale last week for lunch with my husband.
The service that we received by Becca was quick and efficient :)
We ordered the Burito bowl and Carnitas which were both delicious, the meat was juicy and tender.
We didn't order any alcoholic beverages but I must say the drinks menu looked very impressive!
We will be back!
