The Hot Tamale is a mid line mexican eatery. Better than eating at Taco Bell by far, but lacking the authentic feel that The Cactus Bar & Grill provides. Hot Tamale does have seating for customers but they do not have a bar. Hot Tamale...More

The food here is delicious--and you get a lot for your money. You choose your own meats/cheeses/toppings, like at a Subway. However, there are so many options to choose from, and so much food! They even have kid sized meals. The only down side I...More

Cafeteria style burritos and bowls. Pick a meat, veggies, eat. The place could do a lot more with decor if they're gonna call themselves Hot Tamale. A bit pricey.

The food is always fresh and plentiful. It's nice to have this as an option in town. It's a little cold in the winter, so dress warmly.

This was a great alternative to fast food on our way through Canton. Like another reviewer said, there's isn't much in terms of atmosphere, and the place could use a good dusting in the corners and shelves, but the food fair outweighed the cleanliness. Everything...More
