Find Parking

The owner of brunch restaurant Orange launched The Tamale Guy food truck to join in the city's mobile meals movement. Besides roaming around the Loop, The Tamale Guy hopes to hit a different part of the city each day. From Roscoe Village to the Gold Coast to Wicker Park, customers can expect to see this truck all around town. Different tamale varieties include chipotle pork, roasted poblano pepper, corn with melted chihuaua cheese option and herb chicken with salsa verde. Chips and salsa are available as a side order, and a choice of red or green salsa comes with each tamale. Mexican hot chocolate or tortilla soupmay make an apperance during chillier months.
