Tamales are really good. Never been disappointed. I showed up 12/22 at 5am out by 7:30am. The place is clean, efficient and organized. It's big enough to hold several people. You're not out in the cold. Staff is well kept and friendly. They had a "Grinch" and a Xmas tree. Very festive-worth going there. Great customer service and atmosphere.

This is an institution of San Antonio and the best tamales you could hope to eat. It's the golden brown standard of what a tamale should taste like. The pork tamales are perfectly moist, spiced, and flavored as it leaves your insides demanding more. The barbacoa is good, but it just doesn't compare to the tamale. Get here EARLY for the freshest batch.

A co-worker brought a couple of dozen tamales into work and they were everything that she said they were!!!!! GREAT! My new place for tamales. A friend is coming into town for the holidays and we’re heading over there. I’m going to try the Barbacoa.
