In no way authentic Mexican foot, Hot Tamales serves cheap, pretty bland Mexican food to the office workers of Center City Philadelphia.
These are the $3.59 Supreme nachos. with beef, refried beans, tomatoes, and cheese from a three-gallon can.
I remember going to Hot Tamales 15 years ago. Somehow it survives and seems to draw a regular lunch crowd. I guess there is an unmet demand for Mexican lunch options.
1.88/5 pickled jalapenos – eat these but don’t expect much.
