La Guadalupana for tamles
Can somebody please tell me the current address and phone number of La Guadalupana. I am sending my mom there to buy me some tamales, but i have found at least 3 different addresses and phone numbers, including one here on chowhound at 26th, but that post is dated 2004. chicago.com has a different address and phone number, and furthermore, senortamale has a different number and different address on 37th. what the dilly?
While it's been a while since dongstadden posted, I thought I'd update the response based on what I've learned. Being Mexican, tamales are a Christmas tradition, and no one makes them better than La Guadalupana. They have closed their stores and have become a wholesale company but sell their products, both the tortilla and tamale masa (dough), sauces, corn husks, and pre-cooked tamales, online at www.senortamale.com. While the addresses are different, the phones listed for the ones on 35th & on Archer are the same company. Good luck.
La Guadalupana does have more than one location, though it seems that the 26th Street location no longer offers tamales:

Could your mother travel to a different neighborhood? A tamaleria which has gotten excellent reviews is Tamales los mejores de Guerrero, in Rogers Park on the far north side:
