We finally made it to The Tamale Place and it did not disappoint. It was amazing!! We carried out and enjoyed everything ordered! The black bean tamale was delicious and with the fresh salsa and sweet corn on the side, a great vegetarian lunch! Can’t wait to get back to Indy to eat here again.

I came here after watching the episode with Guy Fieri. The chips and salsa are my favorite. Their tamales are good, idk if they are really authentic Mexican though. But they are generous on the meat and sauce. Even the tacos are pretty big.

If you don't know, you just don't. A must stop now every time I'm in Indianapolis!!!

Ordered the steak nachos, steak tacos, chirozo tacos and spicy chicken tacos. Everything was tasty, staff was friendly and although it was small, the environment was very nice.

I love this place. I usually get the steak nachos and a couple of tamales. I can not speak on anything else but the nachos are amazing.

The best steak and chicken taco's I've had in a very long time. I love the corn tortilla shells.
Richard Street via - Aug 29, 2021
Delicious and authentic. Get there early because they can sell out quickly. Cannot wait to go back!
Teresa Donahoe via - Aug 19, 2021

Chet Harris via - Aug 15, 2021
Incredibly delicious!!! Their taco is by far THE BEST tacos in indy!! My fav. Is the spicy chicken taco, the talapia taco is good too. Chocolate tamales are to die for! And the cheese pablano tamales are great too.

The Tamale place is ALWAYS a must-stop on any trips to Indy. Their tamales are always spot on and their nacho chips are the best anywhere. I love their fresh salsa too. They are very quick on the service too and the staff has always been friendly.

Food was all phenomenal. Dining was very small and crowded. Also felt that they ran out of several menu items very early on for the business hours posted on the door.

Guy is right! Best beef tamale I ever had! Kid’s torta looks amazing as well.

Great food, good people but they were out of Tamale when we went. May be next visit I will try it.
Swapnil Bodele via - Jul 14, 2021
Good authentic Mexican food. If you get the tamales - they come plain. You pay for toppings extra, for a small fee. I get salsa, sour cream, onion, & sometimes cilantro. The pork tacos are good. They come with cheese, onion, & cilantro. The restaurant atmosphere is pleasant, with good music playing.
Susan Indy via - Jul 14, 2021
Love this place remember when it was on the corner and tiny it has grow so much. Best tamales ever!!!
Karen Mayes via - Jul 4, 2021
Tamale lovers head this way! You will not be disappointed with these scratch made tamales. Eat what you can and get the rest to go and share! They have so many great choices! We did a sampling and it will be difficult to pick a favorite. Maybe the steak was it. All was delicious. Yummy salsa! Will be back any time we’re in India ... read more

Service was good and so were tamales. Will need to get there earlier if we want to try the apple pecan tamales. Chipotle beef was really good.

If you like tamales you will enjoy this place. Large variety of other Mexican foods as well. I had the nachos, and thought they were good. I won't give them five stars because they didn't have any clean tables to sit at, despite them being unoccupied.

Good Queso dip and chips.

We came to The Tamale Place after reading about it on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. This place is so good! We got tamales, salsa, chips, and steak tacos and were blown away by how delicious everything was. I highly recommend stopping in if you are anywhere near this place!
Robin Mathis via - Jun 15, 2021
I wore a star wars shirt and they put that as the order name! Lol. Very good food, I got the chicken in red sauce one and it tasted great.
Joshua Galloway via - Jun 14, 2021
I live in Richmond now and I am indeed missing this awesome place. Tamales are big and juicy and I even enjoyed some of the dessert tamales they offered. Cant wait to eat there when I visit this summer!!
Salvador Robledo via - Jun 13, 2021
Delicious tamales! Our first time visiting— staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend! Guy Fieri’s picks are never wrong. Enjoyed my trip to flavortown.
