The Tamale Place

Posted on 11.06.2013


>> “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” featured The Tamale Place on one of its episodes, so I had high standards for this Mexican restaurant. All the ingredients are fresh, all-natural and preservative-free. Unfortunately, the restaurant only makes a limited number of fresh tamales each day and had run out by the time I arrived there. I settled for a mild chicken verde taco and split some steak nachos with others in my group. The corn tortilla and chicken were definitely fresh. When paired with the melted cheese, cilantro, onion and mild salsa, I found that I did not want to stop at only one taco. The nachos also were served  “loaded,”  which means covered with lettuce, black beans and queso. The tortilla chips stayed crunchy despite being soaked in the creamy queso and filled us up. The quality of the food definitely meets the restaurant’s desires and claim to fame for being all-natural and authentic. My only complaint would be that it is not right next to campus for late-night food runs.
