I love this place! The Tamales are really good and so are the margaritas. The atmosphere is laid back.

Just popped in for a drink and the margarita was fantastic. Great ambiance too! There is a patio and air conditioned interior. The interior is an eclectic jumble of eye catching design! So much to look at!

Tamales are a local dish and seem to be minced beef coated in pork fat and wraped in a corn leaf. Not something I would rush back for but at $5 for 6 you may wish to see for yourself. Apparently this is an award...More

The Cuban sandwich is one of the beds I have had out side of Miami. Not to mention the sangria. It was a great meal and a fun location.

Really fun place, great food and great margaritas! We visited on a weekday so it was pretty quiet but can imagine it’s a great experience on a weekend! And got some free margarita mix as we spent over $15!!

We just couldn't resist Fat Mama's, home of the 'Knock you naked Margarita'. The Margaritas were good and the tamales were wonderful, though a small order was plenty. The wild colors, especially in the bathroom were lively.

The atmosphere was great and the decor was super cute! I have a feeling that most people are there for the margaritas. Unfortunately, we don’t drink so I can’t say. However, the food was ok. The tamales were definitely not the best I’ve ever had....More
