Have been here numerous times. I guess that means it is good enough to keep going back. It is small, family owned. You go for the food, not the atmosphere. You can have a cheap, filling lunch for $5. Also, the local Police agencies frequent...More

This place has the best tamales. I could eat them for the rest of my life. I've had most of their options, spicy, various meats, etc. it's all good. Every time.

Many other places to get these tamales. I think they freeze them and then thaw them out. The masa is dry for me. Very small amount of stuffing. Not impressed. Prefer la Gloria.

You can. It go wrong with Evies. Phenomenal tamales made from scratch. If you want anything other than chicken or pork you need to call ahead and give them 1 hr notice so they can make them fresh!

We stopped here for lunch - we're pretty big tamale fans. We had the lunch special and were so impressed by the value - $4 for 2 tamales (choice of 3 fillings), rice and beans. The tamales were so-so...a bit skinnier than we're used to,...More

Made a special stop to Evie's to pick up 4 dozen tamales and sauce! Well worth the drive from the burbs. If you're looking for authentic Mexican look no farther. Evie's is the place! 12/$9 freshly made!
