Tiny restaurant. Only really makes tamales; an old lady in the back works hard all day. Most people take away, 2$ each. Four kinds; chicken, pork, bar b cued pork and cheddar with jalapeño. Service fast and good, parking, but creeps me out. Sell dozens...More

Little storefront shop in Tigard along Pacific Hwy. Visited several times for tamales. Good price, friendly people, and tasty food. My daughter loves the tamales and I enjoy as well. I would stay away from the BBQ pork tamale. Not sure how they decided that...More

Good early to get the best selection. As the name implies, they serve hand-made tamales. The fare is straightforward and very good.

The tamales are great, the salsa is amazing and the beans and rice are very mediocre. Skip the beans and rice and get an extra tamale. Clean location and warm friendly service.

We go here for lunch from work occasionally. Best chili rellenos around but you have to get there early as they sell out quickly. Their "signature" tamales are fine. Good prices, friendly place. Only 4 tables, but they do a lot of carryout.

I have been wanting to stop in here for about a month. I love homemade tamales (from growing up in Arizona and having an ex family member who was Mexican who made wonderful ones). I ordered a couple chicken tamales and a couple cheese/jalapeno tamales....More
