What is wrong with Delicious??? Those are pretty solid. If you want vegetarian tamales try Adelante by UIW. It is a purple building. Trust me....it won't disappoint!

Last time I went it was nothing but the husk, oil/grease and masa. No meat or anything what so ever. They've been going down hill. I won't touch them with a 10ft pole.

The only good ones I've had in a while are Tellez, which is on Gen McMuellen and some restaurant on Zarzamora, the name escapes me, which were pretty good. But I guess I've been spoiled. When you have a 95 yr old woman, my grandmother, may she rest in peace, from the heart of Mexico make them every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas using God knows what spices, every other tamale just doesn't measure up.

Man, really??? I was planning on getting them this New Year's from delicious. Now I am wondering??? Does Tellez have another location? Sadly, us pale Irish don't have a 95 year old grandmother from the heart of Mexico to make them for us I bet your grandma's tamales were awesome! Cannot beat homemade!

I don't think they do. That location is the only one I know about. But the delicious location was the one on Nacodoghes and it left me feeling blah. Maybe another location makes them slightly better.

But, yeah, I'm more for the "my mom knows a lady down the street" type of thing but am looking for more restaurants that have good ones because these little ole ladies and gents are sadly going away. Mine are okay but I can't make them this year. But I'll try Adelante next time I'm in the area. I'm all for trying different tamales.

Where on Gen. McMullen? I drive that every day from 90 to PoSA, so that would be an easy stop

So right next to the Taco Bell I ate lunch at yesterday? Or opposite side of the street? I know there's a big restaurant/store thing that advertises tamales on the west side of Gen McMullen. I stopped in that parking lot one morning when I forgot to put on my stupid reflective belt thing.

So the name is Tellez? what's the best way to reheat a tamale? I usually just wrap them in a wet paper towel and throw them in the microwave. Ghetto steaming is what I call it..
