  1. I don't eat tamales often, but I did have some at the Rick Bayless fast food restaurant in Macy's downtown and they were delicious!!! Have tried tamales in the past and haven't liked them but these were great!

    1. Casa de Pueblo,
      1810 S Blue Island
      Maxwell Market at Roosevelt and Canal on Sundays.
      Taqueria El Milagro
      1923 S. Blue Island
      A little bit pricey, but very good:
      Tamale Hut Cafe
      8300 W. Cermak
      North Riverside
      Tamales los mejores de Guerrero
      7024 N. Clark
      Finding tamales is pretty easy in this city. The best ones are made in my kitchen, however. :-)
