We did take out tamales for a picnic, delicious and I'm not even a tamale person. Wish we would have had more time to go back and eat in. Cute outside dining available.

If you enjoy mexican food this place is great. You can seat yourself, order at the front counter, and look around at the ahop nearby. They also have cookies for dessert.
