Holly, Ruth's are made in Dallas. Not as good as the ones you can get I bet, but I like them better than Pedro's.

I don't know if it has changed much but Hodges Restaurant in Downtown St.Louis used to serve tamales 3 in a plate topped with their chili, chese, onions and the fixin's you'd like and they were killer. Anytime you'd go in you would see bank presidents and bums sitting in the same room eating the same great food. Man I could go for a plate of those tamales right now.

Mary's in Knoxville on Magnolia has very good tamales made Mississippi style. She has been featured on Saucemans list many times. They are very good.

I agree... Pedro's is the BEST... used to munch on them at the Texas State Fair among other things... and they are very good from the supermarket...

Goya actually makes a pretty good tamale also...

As kids we usually bought canned ones or sometimes the regular ones in corn husks.
Pedros are pretty good.I have had them before.They also sell Alamo Tamales here like at Walmart.H.E.B.grocery stores sell Rosita,Pedro's and Garcia's.


The Sanchez Family here in Arizona make my favorite Green Corn Tamales. (served in their restaurant called Que Bueno) They took over the place several years ago and have just done an outstanding job on all of their menu items. Their salsa has won first place the last several years at the Great Southwest Salsa Challenge in Scottsdale. top notch stuff!

Of course I am already in love with NM (having an affair with NYC at the same time). Xannie: Have you ever read the poem by New Mexican poet Joan Logghe called "Something Like a Marriage"? She donated a copy to Ranch O Casadas in Espanola which they had on the wall. A very good poem about the complexities of a NM attachment! (maybe I can get a copy...)

Anyway, re: Tamales. I had 2 good one this part weekend (1) Leona's (Chimayo): Veggie (zucchini, green chile, cheese). Leona's also sells in bulk and in freezer section of some NM markets. Yum Yum.
(2) Santo Domingo Pueblo - off I-25 Exit 259 at the gas station where the native americans sell handmade jewelry, boots, etc. Nice tamales with meat. A bit less spicy, a bit bigger and a bit more expensive than Leona's. ($3 vs $1.75)

PS: What is Xmas tamales? (red/green chile?)

I’m engaged to New Mexico. I’ve been engaged for eighteen years.
I’ve worn its ring of rainbow set with a mica shard.
I’ve given my dowry already, my skin texture, my hair moisture.
I’ve given New Mexico my back-East manners, my eyesight,
The arches of my feet. New Mexico’s a difficult fiancé.
—excerpt from "Something Like Marriage" by Joan Logghe

I am in Houston looking for some good tamales. I understand that Texas Tamales are very good but I have been unable to find them except in the grocery store.

I would prefer to find them in a place that sold them hot.

For those that know Houston, I would prefer to find a place close to South Main St.

Posa's is a sort of "chain" in Santa Fe, a little "downscale" if you will. I'd look around elsewhere. Leona's probably used Chimayo chile which is a second cousin to Hatch, a tad sweeter I think. And good.

I've got a dozen green chile and pork tamales waiting to be served for dinner tonight. Also a pound of carnitas. Having a sliced avocado, grapefruit salad on the side. Neat twist....slice up the avocados, section out a grapefruit or two, squeeze juice into a serving bowl with avocados and grapefruit. Drizzle with a little EVOO and some coarse black pepper. Try it you'll like it. You can get the tamales from Super La Tienda(here in Madison, WI) every weekend. The best I've ever had!

I just experienced the single best tamales ever tasted at a company Xmas party. The source: Roberto's in Las Cruces, NM. They are renowned for the world's biggest enchilada. But these tamales are superior to anything else I've had on their menu.

I am going to bring back an UNANSWERED question from one of the earlier posts. Will one of you Tamale lovers please explain to me what the difference is between the 'Normal' Mexican, or Tex/California-Mex Tamale and the Southern-Style or Mississippi Style tamale one obtains at places like DOES EAT PLACE or other Delta 'Soul-food places.
Paul mentioned them in a post on this page, but I don't understand how the Southern differ from the Mexican?Inquiring Minds NEED to know !!

Interesting sidenote: Our local tamale place (Lupe's in Sherman, TX) has installed wi-fi! Oh, this place is the real deal alright...I'm guessing there is an assimilated techie relative or something. Nothing is better on the 'ol laptop keyboard than chili!

I would also like to learn about that southern tamale thing....

Texas Tamale Co. used to be good but I haven't tried them in several years. They are on Fountainview which is the second exit on 59s just outside the loop, you make a right and it's a couple of blocks on the left. The corp. office is on Knight road around the corner from the Med. Ctr. but I think they are just offices. H.E.B. Mi Tienda sells tamales but I haven't tried them. I will try to do so soon and let you know how it goes. Their menudo is very good.

Don't know nothin bout them suthun tamales, but did a google and found an entire website devoted to Southern Tamales, with the history, the "trail" and more. Seems like they are same as Mexican tamales but somehow wound up as a Delta food! Read on:

Due to this thread on roadfood, I decided to take a short drive over to Fountain View to check out Texas Tamale. I expected it to be a huge place due to the fact that they supply a lot of stores in Houston. It was a small hole in the wall place. Perhaps they make most of their tamales at their corporate location?

I do not have a lot of experience with tamales but their's was tasty served with rice, cheese and some sauce with chips. I got four tamales that were very small for $5.00. They were very spicy.

I also got a beef taco which was very good and served as chunks of beef with some lettuce and sour cream.

As expected, the place was totally Hispanic and the service was very good..
