Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good food. Loved the selection of the strawberry and pineapple tamales. We even bought some for breakfast the next day. The staff gave us instructions for the best way to reheat them. I'm glad to have gone there. I can't wait to go back and try other options on their menu.
