Respond to Review of Hot Damn Tamales
Review: Used to Mexican food on the north side, I was so surprised to find a place that makes tamales without lard. Even more surprising is the large (especially for Fort Worth) selection of vegetarian and vegan fillings. I'm a big fan of all the fillings but the poblano corn and the mushroom/goat cheese are a must for me. Tamales come with generous servings of rice and black beans a large bowl of chips and salsa. You won't be leaving this place hungry. Order a Mexican coke. I haven't had a chance to visit since the restaurant expanded the seating area but I've walked by and it looks fantastic! They really did a great job! Service can be a little slow (don't be in a big rush) but friendly. My only real complaint is that their food can be very bland and some of the tamales are dry. Normally I'd just dump some salsa on a dry tamale but their salsa just doesn't "kick it up a notch". I suspect this is in part due to the fact that they focus more on shipping their product all over the place to areas where spicy food just isn't the norm. Still, I've never been disappointed with this lunch spot and I can't wait to try their new menu items. A grilled corn quesadilla is going to have my name on it soon!
