These tamales are amazing... It's take out only via a drive up at an old ice vending kiosk, but it ms the best.

These little stands are over the place. Stop in and get a dozen or two. The Trick ** Tell them to "get 'em out of the juice" That means they come from lower in the pot and the will be juicier not the dried out ones on top.

I love hot tamales!! They are the best! Any other hot tamale is not nearly as good as these are! If you haven't had one you gotta try one!

Thank Terri8282
