The service was great. I'm not a fan of tamales so I had the Alculpo bowl. The flavors were great but the beef was somewhat gristly (and minimal...).

Since I seen them featured on Diner's Drive-Ins & Dives I knew I had to try this place the next time I went to Indy. Guy Fieri just made it look so yummy!!! We went the 1st time approximately 3 years ago and just yummmmmy! The tamales are so big & filling. There are so many different kinds to choose from, and I am absolutely addi ... read more

For all you vegetarians, The Tamale Place is as good as it gets.  Expect not one, not two, not three, not four, but FIVE vegetarian options!  PLUS: there are dessert tamales. Go. Get. Some.

Great homemade tamales. Mild or hot, varieties vary a bit each day. Dine in or outside, along with takeout.

Authentic tasting tamales are hard to find, but this places fits the bill!  I had the chicken in green sauce and the hot and spicy pork which was my favorite.  Not too spicy, just enough.  The pork tamale had a little more filling than a traditional, but that made it better in my opinion.  The establishment has a dive bar feel, and t ... read more

Delicious!!! Authentic tamales with great flavor. Go early so you can be sure to grab one as they go fast. If you haven't been here yet and are from the Indy area...GO!

This is an excellent place for authentic tamales that are hard to come by in the area. The tamale dough is as close to perfection as it gets. You can fill it with any of their meats/sauces and have a great meal. These are made continuously and they display a count of how many of each are ready. From my experience, the tacos are a bit ... read more

I only tried chicken here...chicken tamales Verde ( green sauce) and hot. Both were fantastic and fresh and there spicy and mild chicken tacos are probably best in nation(not exaggerating). As far as other dishes I didn't try yet. Update: last few times there chicken and beef tasted old. I hope they pick up the quality.

I have been looking for good Mexican food in Indiana for two years, but I keep getting disappointed. But, this time, I was not disappointed with this place. I had the spicy chipotle chicken taco and tried the chicken Verde taco. Their corn tacos are fresh, grilled, and graced with freshest ingredients.  
The food was fantastic. It

Love the food and the portions! Just a bit on a pricey side but it's worth it. Also some items get sold off pretty fast (ie veggie tamales) so you might want to go early!

This was our first time here and it didn't disappoint. They do at times have limited tamale varieties due to them always making more. We got the spicy chicken tamale. One was definitely enough for each of us because the tamales are huge.
