Who makes the best Tamales in SA? I need about 50 dozen for a fundrasier. I used to go to Los Hermanos on Cupples Rd, but the people who used to make them are no longer work there. I loved there tamales, but the new tamales are too spicy and they taste horrible.

Thanks In advance for suggestions!

I agree with Tellez Tamales,..I also hear B & B Tamales on Mayfield St on the Southside are good also,..you need to taste-test for yourself,...

They 85yr old lady that lives down the street from my abuelita! OMG! Beats any tamale I've had stateside. Sooo good. But that doesn't help you. LOL

Tellez are also pretty good. I recently brought some into work where people were used to the ole Delicious Tamales and they were a hit.

Ruben's are the best. But they get really busy around the holidays. They provide for a lot of fundraisers like yourself. Call ahead...

About ten years back my family got together for the holiday's and made Venison tamales. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun. I didn't think the way they wanted me to wrap them would work but it did. Amazing. We made a bunch of them and they were really good. They didn't last long.

I'd say back to Reuben's since Don's Molino has shut down.

Rubens are good if you like a lot of Masa and no meat,...don't get me wrong,..the Masa has taste,...but the filling is what makes a good Tamale,...
