Nothing I'd go out of my way for in the future, but glad I tried it.

I had heard the tamales here were awesome and despite working around the corner for three years, I had yet to try them. Unfortunately, they didn't quite live up to expectation for me.

The good:
-Decently priced at $3.00/each
-Good ratio of masa to chicken for most of the tamale (see note below)
-Super fast grab and go, or enjoy at the tiny store
-Delicious hot sauce on the side

The bad:
-The masa was VERY thick at the ends of the tamale with no chicken
-No flavor options, only chicken
-Chicken was fatty and I had several pieces of cartilage in my tamales
-Hot sauce costs an extra $0.50 for a tiny little cup

Overall, nothing I'd go out of my way for in the future, but glad I tried it.

Nothing incredible, but somehow just what I want.

I've been here a handful of times when I get that craving for tamales on lunch. So this review is for the tamales only.

Suffer Cafe is located in the lobby of the parking garage which threw me the first time I visited on my tamale hunt. It's all the way towards the back where the elevators, keep walking past the shoe shop and the florist. The cafe is right across from the elevators. Once inside, the menus are posted behind the counter.

They offer coffee, espresso and other beverages, as well as sandwiches. I only have eyes for the tamales, which are $3 a piece.

They are served hot and wrapped in a corn husk with no sauce. The tamales are filled with shredded chicken, black olives, and jalapeños. The are decent and satisfy my craving for a tamale and a cheap lunch. Nothing incredible, but somehow just what I want.
