Food is hot, fresh, and well-made. Coffee is the same. Green chile tamales are unique and memorable. Burritos and pancakes are high-quality, too. Nice people working there. Cool location in a bowling alley.

We went to Dorothy's for tamale's after reading the hype. It was not good at all. Had the pork, one red and one green. Waited over a half hour to order. Terrible service and bland food. I don't get it!!!!

The tamales are small with good flavor but unfortunately still has a filler mixed in with the meat. Better than canned but not nearly as good as they could be. Above average breakfast. Bowling alley restaurant. The Brown Burro is much better for everything!

Dorothys Taqmales used to be in Hartsel and is now at the Southpark Bowl and grill. The food hasn't changed. Same quality, great flavor, home cooked tamales! The chimis are also worth the wait as are the burgers both buffalo and beef. If you bring...More
