If you don't make your own, where do you go? How many dozen do you get? Only on holidays or year round?

I get them at Mendez Bakery in Gainesville. They are the best I've had. I get pork. I get them year round and a dozen at a time. I like to have them fresh.

We get ours from the Balderas Tamale Factory on Jones Road in NW Houston when we go that way. Great tamales. Been eating them for 30 years. The spicy chicken tamales are terrific. Prices are reasonable and the tamales are not tiny. Place your order by phone before you go there, if you want a bunch of them.

Tommy Tamale on Northwest Highway in Grapevine, year round.

The last thing I do on Friday before driving down for opening weekend is pick up two dozen of their BBQ Tamales. The best I have ever had.

Just my .02,

In Graham there is a Mexican lady that makes them in her house for $10 a dozen IIRC. Uses a lot of garlic and free hot sauce. up

I was browsing on Laramie Classifieds on FB and found a gal making and selling tamales I ordered 2 dozen and she delivered. They are awesome, green chile chicken and red pork. Look around online and see if anyone local is making any. I'll be a regular buyer now.
Tommy Tamale is good , had them while down at Christmas.

My order was delivered 3 days after ordering on a Sunday. They were short a Dozen of the Pork tamales of the 5 I ordered! Like pulling teethe to get them to make it right but We had a dozen Pork tamales last night for dinner and I have to say they were GOOD. I also ordered a dozen of the Sweet desert Cream Cheese tamales they offered. They were OK but I'm not much of a sweets eater so I wouldn't order them again for myself but the Wife and 14yr old enjoyed them.

Sorry to hear that they screwed your order up. They are good tamales though...
