Best Austin tamales?

Who makes the best tamales in Austin and sells them by the dozen?

  1. i love curra's tamales.

    1. Oaxacan Tamaleo. Austin Chronicle has a review here:

      1. In addition to Curra's and Oaxacan Tamaleo, which are both excellent, I'd recommend Nueva Onda, on College just off the Oltorf/Congress intersection. You didn't mention a specific kind of tamale, but if you want vegetarian you can get great ones by the dozen at Las Manitas.

          1. Like everyone else, I used to buy our Christmas tamales at Green & White Grocery but since they closed, now make the trek out to Bee Cave and the original Rosie's Tamale House. We usually get several dozen of the 'spicy' and several dozen of the 'mild.'

            The original Tamale House is a small shack on Hwy 71, just across the highway from the larger restaurant.
