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.
-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 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.
