I have lived and traveled all over the country. I missed the tamale's I used to eat in California and went here not expecting much. Not only was I so pleasantly surprised, my 12 year old LOVED his meal. We tried the Chicken Tamale in Green Sauce, The pork tamale in green sauce, the one with chocolate and nuts, their homemade chips and their fish tacos. EVERYTHING was GREAT. We spent $32 for 3 of us and took home over half of our meal because the portions were generous and filling. LOVE this place and will definitely return. We went to the one on the Southside of Indy. Wish there was one North or a bit closer to us, but we won't let that stop us from returning at some point. Everything was home made and there was a lot of variety. Hard to know what to order because they had so many choices. After eating their tamales and fish taco's, it will be impossible for me to make taco's with all the hard and processed shells out there. Now I'm spoiled and want fresh! Their salsa is excellent. I love HOT, and found that their hot salsa isn't just hot, but flavorful.
