We had vegitarian tamales for dinner. They were scrumptious. The masa was tender and so tasty. I was completely absorbed in the taste and didn't realize the absence of chili. I tried the tamales with spinach and the mixed vegetables. They were both delicious and...More

I was recommended to try this restaurant last year, and have gone back multiple times since then. This restaurant is not very fancy, just a long row of tables headed back, but it is very comfortable. After two tamales, some chips, and beans I get...More

These are authentic delectable tamales. We ate out in the lovely patio outback that was cool and comfortable. This isn’t a fancy place, they clearly put their efforts into the food. If I lived here I’d be a regular, as it is I’m going to...More

Eat your tamales there or take them home frozen; either way, Tucson Tamales are consistently delicious and made from healthy ingredients. Their sauces and side dishes are also delicious.

Saw this place on the food network and decided to check it out because I was going to be in town. Yes the tamales are good but I think I would rather pay the $13 for a dozen from my friends grandma.

Great tamales. Blue corn was my favorite. Highly recommend this place. Beer served also, which helps if you order the hot ones.

Had he spicy beef chipotle. Everything tasted great and authentic. The staff is very friendly. I really liked the salsa bar, and would recommend this place for anybody visiting Tuscon and interested in local.

Limited basic beer and wine menu but enough choices to be acceptable. The place is small and not fancy so not an extensive wine list. Worth the trip for the tamales though and I'm sure you can find a beer or wine that will... More

Have the traveler google Tucson Tamale's menu. I did have the pumpkin tamales and the one I had was a vegetable one--squash. I don't remember other than these that I sampled.
