Made by hand

We do it the old fashion way... all our ingredients are fresh, we make all our salsas from real food, nothing coming out of a can! Our tamales are made by hand, one at a time, we dont use any machinery. That's just not our way of doing things.

Tiny little house but AMAZING tamales! Definitely recommend going in and skipping the delivery. She makes pork grinds in house as well!

I’ve had tamales from here before. A girl brought to work a few dozen tamales. Finally got around to ordering on my own, the Tamale Plate/combo is excellent. Will 100% keep coming for my tamale cravings!

It’s a 20+ year old family ran place with outside or take out option but is the best tamales and food anywhere in 20 mile radious . My family’s been here blocks away for 20+ yrs and love helping the area places I live in . Try out the yellow shack across from tamale kitchen . You won’t be disappointed
