Reviews for The Tamale Man

Just got home with the food and haven't gotten a chance to taste it yet, but it won't matter. I'll never go back. I was charged $36 for a tamale plate and a cheese enchilada combo. Since there is NOTHING on the ENTIRE MENU, either online OR right there in the place that's over $11.50, I'm not sure how two items came to $36. I tried to discuss this with the gentleman who took my order and my money, but he just kept skirting the issue and never gave me a straight answer as to full review
My neighbors had talked about the great tamales here... I decided to go last night with my boyfriend for a late night snack. We thought we were walking into $5 tamales... but the owner was very insistant that we order "SUPREME" I said twice, that I wanted just a regular tamale, but he continued to insist that we order the Supreme, that it would "change our life" and told my boyfriend "your girlfriend will no longer have to cook, this will change your life." He rang it in... full review

Got food from there today and it's really good and the size of the tamales are huge. Only reason giving it a 3 was because the cashier kept pushing over and over again for a tip. Made things awkward to where I felt like I was obligated to tip but after the 3rd hint he through out there to tip I declined.
