Get the Tamale plate and leave with a box full of lunch tomorrow! Delicious! When you finish go next door and enjoy Guero's park and listen to some local musical talent!

On a weekend, it is impossible to get in most places on So Congress. We were lucky to slip in here and get a table in about 20 minutes—twice!—and that wasn't because the food was poor. What this place lacks in ambiance it makes up...More
