It's almost that time of year! One of our clients just called and asked if we wanted to buy any (that's the first time that's ever happened to me...haha). But, before I say, "Sure, I want a dozen of these a dozen of these and a bazillion of these because their my favorites..."....

Where do you all get your tamales? Where are the best ones in town? Of course we can count the delicious Tamales and all those other ones we see on the news annually...but any other ones?

What are your favorite kinds? Pork, Chicken, Jalapeño, Cheese, another kind?

I need to find a good place too! We went to Delicious Tamales last year, and they were ok. They had a Jalapeno Chicken that was pretty good. The rest seemed dry. (Could have been our preparation, but we followed the directions.)I like Pork tamales and don't really like cheese in mine. Although grated cheese on top with sour cream is fine! I had a really good corn and green chile one in Arizona.

Mmmmmm.... tasty!

My family seems to like the fresh tamales at HEB. Around the holidays, many HEB stores have packages of them in the hot case with the rotisserie chickens. I believe I've seen them there in chicken and beef varieties.

My Grandmother makes tamales around the holidays. My favorites are her bean, cheese, and jalapeno and her beef ones. All made from scratch!

Let's see there's Rudy's on S. Flores about 2 blks North of Theo! There's Don's Molino 2blks. south of Division on Pleasanton Rd. There's a long standing popular place (i forgot the name) at Roland & Rigsby! I like Don's Molino!!


Few year back a local t.v. station ranked the best Tamales and Best Barbecue! By pole I think! Rudy's #1 Tamales and a Barbecue place at Rigsby and Roland # ! Barbecue (across from tamale place!)

Pork too! Yum.

I've had so-so experiences buying them from "this lady"... as in "I know this lady who makes and sells tamales... you want to order some?" Main problem is not enough meat/filling, too much masa.

I like bean with jalapeño, and pork.

If I'm going to buy them, I only buy from Rudy's and make sure I get the handmade. I like pork.
We also have an older man that stops by our office and sells the tamales his wife makes... they are SO good, and taste fresh & clean.
MmmmMmmm tamales...

Ruben's Homemade Tamles. 1807 Rigsby between Roland and Pecan Valley. It's at the same intersection as The Smoke House. (Formerly Bob's Bar BQ). That's two San Antonio icons at the same intersection. My wife, who works in Boerne, says at Mi Casa has some really good tamles also. Mi Casa Tamales
