Delicate texture, beautifully made. Wish there was more spice/seasoning, but I do like it strong.

Delicious, friendly and had great vegan options. I had this on my list to try for a while and glad I finally made a visit. I... placed my order when I got there and didn't have to wait very long. The salad and sauce provided a great compliment to fillingtamales. I will be back! Read more

The kind of restaurant where you can taste the love in the food. Instantly became a favorite, even exceeded our own... expectations. Incredibly delicious, very healthy, and so satisfyingly filling. And the cherry on top of the tamale is the ownerwho was so sweet and personable. I really appreciate the menu showing what is gluten free, and I wish all restaurants did this!If you want one of the best of Ann Arbor?s authentic restaurants, you MUST try Pilar?s! Read more

Simple but superb tamales and pupusas. Very delicate masa, beautifully seasoned with savory spices in the sauce but not too much... heat for the people who are worried about that. We tried a variety of flavors and enjoyed them all. Read more

First time visit to Pilar's today! I got 6 yam and cheese tamales and 2 small tamarind juices. It was very good! The person... who took my order took care to share which vegetarian tamales they had. I ordered the 6 tamales special because she mentionedit. Tamarind juice was real good too. Thanks, Pilar's Tamales!! Read more

I love tamales, who doesn't love tamales?! After 2 years of driving by and thinking "Tamales!!!" I finally decided to stop in... on a whim with my son. It was like going home. The food was fresh and delightful, there are vegan options as well. In additionto food that feeds your soul you will also find jewelry, pottery, place mats, and other beautifully made items for your home.The woman helping us was warm, kind, and thoughtful. It's a wonderful place I hope to visit often. Read more
