Jaime Soltero Jr. started Tamale Boy as a catering company in 2008 called Mayahuel Catering. Tamale Boy has evolved into a food truck catering and restaurant business with Portland and Happy Valley brick and mortar locations.
Soltero Jr. and his team aim for Tamale Boy to be a fun and approachable dining option that is affordable for everyone. Tamale Boy offers a seasonally changing menu designed to highlight cuisine from various regions throughout Mexico.
We welcome you to visit one of our three locations and experience the creativity and passion of Tamale Boy.
I really want to educate the Northwest on what true and how diverse Mexican food is...
We aim to fuel the world with our culture.
