Tamale Boy is such a Portland treasure. The tamales are well prepared and so tasty! Great ingredients! I also love the esquitas and the carne asada tacos! So so flavorful and delightful.

This place also has an incredible patio — tons of space, very comfortable, really a nice place to enjoy food and beer and relax!

Sometimes my office orders Tamale Boy catering too, and it’s great as catered food too! The quality does not diminish!

For a delicious and exotic change from average and boring fast food, this place is delicious and the prices are the same as for any fast food place but the food is special, tasty and fun.

If you haven't tried this super place, you need to put it on your list. Strange ordering, but once you figure it out, pretty simple. Food is great and margaritas also enjoyable. We ate outdoors, a bit cool but the heaters were on, so not bad at all.

Friendly helpful service, neighborhood vibe, surprisingly good chicken mole tamales! I asked the counter girl for a recommendation, and she was spot-on. Topped off with a Mexican lager, and I’ll be back again!

Not having tasted any tamale before, we were brought to Tamale Boy during a bike tour.

The place has atmosphere with a cosy garden to sit.

We had various Tamale stuffings to try. The tamale was tasty (and according to group members it was good too).

Definetely worth a stop if you are looking for a nice priced and tasty meal.
