The great tamale hunt (Dal)

Did a search but I'd like to get opinions on tamales available from Tex-Mex places you like. I only need about 3-4 dozen. I prefer tamales that don't have too much masa. Thanks.

  1. I used to get them at Luna's when I lived there. I liked 'em. And they have a cool sign:

    It's downtownish.

    1. Second Luna's. I'd call ahead and make sure they set aside what you want.

      1. I also like Aparicios's in Plano on 18th street.

        1. La Popular on Columbia Avenue in east Dallas has long been known for its tamales.

              Ain't NOTHIN' wrong with La Popular! Make 'em hook ya up with the green as well as the red sauce!

            2. Thanks for the replies. I don't work too far from Luna's and they are open until 6 pm. Might check them out today.
