Christmas Eve Tamales: Where to get 'em fresh and good?

I like the Burrito Mercado experience on Christmas Eve, but don't think too highly of their tamales. Anybody know where we can get (if we actually go out and drive) some excellent fresh tamales for Christmas Eve dinner?

Thanks.

    La Loma on Lake & Bloomington (or at the Midtown Global Market) might possibly be open today; call to check.

    I think their tamales are a step up from El Burrito Mercado's, but they won't blow the socks off of anyone who has had real homemade tamales. (I haven't, so I like 'em. But I also like El Burrito's...)

    Feliz Navidad!

      I've had homemade tamales and I like La Loma's better...
