The new location does not disappoint. The locals and tourist alike pack the restaurant. Margaritas are consistantly yummy!

Tasty inexpensive tamales. The gringo pie is awesome (tamales topped with chili, cheese, onions and jalapeños). A fun place to eat with a funky atmosphere. If you’re in Natchez and you like tamales you have to try this place.

If you're in the mood for a huge and economical serving of tamales, this is the place to go! The menu is extremely limited (tamales, that's it), but the service is fast and the place was packed with regulars on a weekend.

Stopped in for lunch, my husband had tamales or Gringo Pie and it was outstanding and I had the taco Salad, which was great. Nice place to enjoy a good meal, delicious.

I had the "Gringo Pie" - 4 tamales topped with chilli & cheese. Very tasty. My wife had the taco salad. Both were very good. The service is friendly and fast. The place is clean and colorful.

Never had a tamale before, if they are all this good, boy I have been missing much in my life. Also had the chips and salsa (great chips, awesome salsa) and the cornbread. Along with my husband's soft drink and my awesome local beer the...More
