“All natural food, all the time”

Many Mexican restaurants like to throw around the word "authentic". The Tamale Place doesn't say 'authentic', we just do 'authentic'. We boil bags of white corn with a trace of lime and let cool. This is known as the process of nixtamalization. We then wash and grind the corn which produces fresh masa (corn dough). This was the original way of making tamales in Mexico hundreds of years ago and it is the way that we do it today. This is all natural and no preservatives. With the fresh masa, we make our hand-made tamales, tortillas for tacos, and fresh tortilla chips. The Tamale Place prides itself on all natural food - all the time. Featured on Diners, Drive-Ins & Drives.

Stopped by after seeing the recommend from the Food Network feature. Admittedly, I had high expectations as a lover of tamales, but it was quite underwhelming. As far as atmosphere, it is just a unit inside a strip mall in a rather mundane area. As far as the food goes, it was decent, even good, but it paled in comparison to many places I've had tamales in the Chicago area. I'd say If you are in the neighborhood, its worth stopping by, just don't run out far off course for it expecting a mecca of tamales.

Didn't like the Tamales. The tacos looked good we were wishing we would have gotten those.
