This is a tamale house with extras. It is best enjoyed with friends. The tamales are great but I always get the gringos pie. With a beer it's about $10. Not into tamales, they have poboys.

Just about every chance I get when the American Queen pulls into port I try and walk up to Fat Mammas and get one of those delicious gringo pies and a slice of Mexican cornbread can't beat it for the favor and price will always...More
