Order Ahead, Pick Up, and Take Home
Dear Valued Pilar’s Tamales Customers
Pilar’s is a small Mom and Pop business that has been serving Ann Arbor for 20 years.
We are asking you to please pay for your purchases In Cash whenever you can.
This will help us to off-set additional expenses. We still take credit cards, if that is your method of payment, and we ask for an added gratuity to help us to continue providing that service to you.
