  • Did not care for the tamales at ALL. If your looking for authentic tamales in the neighborhood just go down the street to La Casa del Pueblo $3.00 for 1 tamale? Pitch in another $3.00 and get a dozen.
  • Come on in and try some of our Unique Tamales! They are all delicious. :-)
  • All the tamales are amazing. My favorite is Chicago Italian Beef tamale. The garbanzo beans has 5 different pork products in it!! Mmmmm
  • Really great tamales
  • Their Red Sauce is amazing. They also cater. Super cute spot in East Pilsen, when you want something savory but light.
  • Best Tamale in Chicago. Get the Chorizo!
  • The tamales don't have a lot of meat. the sauces do give them lots of flavor but it's mainly all masa. The slow roasted Cuban pork had the most meat. Chipotle chorizo and potatoes had the best sauce.
  • This place is delicious. A mix between traditional and Americanized tamales, the food is fresh, flavorful and light. They have a great selection of different styles. I'll be recommending to all!
  • Love the Italian beef tamale!!!! My kids devoured the chocolate peanut butter one!!!
  • Cuban pork and Chicago Beef tamales are my favorites. Rice, corn and garbanzo sides are delicious
  • Tamales where delicious! The price was just right. It's a must try!
  • The pepper goat cheese tamale is fantastic! The Atomic Pork was great! Nothing special about the Chicago Beef one... I didn't see the beef.
  • First time here! The tamales are all soo good, but watch out for the Atomic pork! Spicy!!! Try the "Not you Moma's Nachos" delish!! With the Garbanzo beans!!! It was the best! Affordable and friendly!
  • Not authentic but still tasty. Try the Juicy Lucy and the apple pie.
  • Excellent hot sauces, you can try before you buy
  • I was very disappointed. The masa for the tamales was flavorless with no moistness to it, as they should be. I tried three:corn w bkj bean, the cuban and roasted peppers. Bleh. Will never return.
  • Not all of the creatively topped tamales work, but some, like the Italian beef one, manage to hit the spot.
  • This place is permanently closed.
