Great tamales and customer service

I love supporting this small business whenever I want pan dulce, a piñata, or a jump house. The people working there are really friendly, and my kiddos have had fun birthday parties both pre-COVID and even now because of them. We'll do an empty piñata for one of my kids and pass out baggies of treats, so the kids have the chance to bash a piñata with friends (one at a time from a distance).

Came across this place during my break and was glad I found it! I decided to order one of their salsa verde chicken tamales and it was delicious and for a good price. The staff was also very accommodating they are taking all the necessary actions to be clean. I will definitely come here again when I am in the area!

I go here to get piñatas for family celebrations. They also sell fresh made tamales and menedo (sp?) There is a good assortment of baked cookies and breads. The people that work there are friendly.

If you want your pan dulce to be fresh, soft, and warm go here! Breads taste so good I feel like I'm back in Mexico. Also, this place has delicious tamales! I tried all of them. Chicken was juicy and tasty. Pork tamale was so good I pigged out, pun intended. Veggie tamale was also very flavorful. Love this place, try it for yourself and don't forget your champurrado!

I come here exclusively for the tamales, of which the chicken in green sauce is my favorite. Champurrado on colder days is also available.

Normally I would say come here and get the best tamales around but just took the family down to get some and my wife started to eat hers and took two bites and then a almost 3 inch chicken bone she had in her tamales I opened mine super soggy so we checked the others super soggy I took a bite and it was very salty tasting then I decided to give it a smell and let me tell you tossed it out the window WOW what's going on guys ?????? Never did I think I would get such nasty tamales from the locals spot... such a bummer guess I will home they will go back to their old ways before everyone found out about this place now it's like no care put into the tamales
