El Norteno Deli - MSP

A friend just moved in nearbye and has offered to buy my lunch in exchange for some manual labor on the new place. There are scant few mentions of this place on the boards, and none involve more than a few words (i am also confused, because in response to my bachelor party thread a few weeks back AnneinMpls mentioned the nightclub upstairs, but i think that was in reference to the place at lyn/lake, not the small place on lake and about 40th).

There are some positive yelp reviews, but im a bit skeptical about what i read over there (even if i LOVE the map feature).

A search turned up a mention of this place (i think) in the "places we go despite the food" thread - saying the patio is worth it even if the food is not.

From reading around it seems they specialize in tamales. Anyone have any (recent) reports on whats good? or other suggestions in the immediate neighborhood - im familiar with the craftsman but was hoping to find something a little divey-er or less well known.
