Fight the feds for freedom

#1 Jul 20, 2012
I spent most of my life living and working amidst the

California Chicanos. I KNOW what good, decent and poor

Mexican-style food tastes like... and Tamale King is an

obvious poor. And I emphasize the poor.
I was the only patron in the place when my food was ready. The

obviously healthy and hearty male in his 20s shouted out my

food was ready. Too lazy to walk a few steps and place the

food on the table? Apparently so.
With my bad feet and knees I worked my way to an upright

position and hobbled to retrieve the food.
Unlike other Mexican-style restaurants in the area there was

no free tortilla chips and salsa to dip them in. And the price

for my food and its skimpy portions was higher than firms

giving the freebies.
Also be aware that foam-type use-once plates are used and the

tableware is a plastic fork and knife.
Tamale King offered me the worst dining experience I have had

in several years.
I do not enjoy writing "bad" reviews but I am conveying my

opinion and I am not exaggerating in any way.
There was another annoyance; several young children running

around and yelling and screaming.
In all truthfulness I have eaten tastier Mexican-style food

bought in the frozen food section of the grocery store. And

the price was less than what I paid for sub-par food and

abominable service at Tamale King.

I could not disagree more. Best tamales in Missouri. Too bad you didn't like it.

Sounds like they put as much effort into your dining experience as you put into formatting your post. My head hurts from reading that.
