This mom & daughter restaurant was on Guy Fieri's show Diners, Drive-in and Dives. The spinach & cheese tamales are where it's at!!!

The spinach, cheese and jalapeo tamales is the best of all in my opinion - the agua de Jamaica is on point - not too sweet not to bitter just how it should be....

The corn and cheese, chicken mole and beef tamales are particularly noteworthy. Also worth a try: specialties like stuffed peppers, queso fresco and sopes asadas.
