Has anyone tried the prepared foods in the back of the Compare store off Roxboro? I noticed they had tamales and I'm always on the hunt for a good tamal.

      I have tried the empanadas and very much like the beef, the chicken is fine, too. There are decent, albeit overly cooked carnitas. Nice shortcut for homemade tacos. We tried uncooked bulk beef chorizo from the meat counter and while it was tasty, it had far too much gristle for me. The bakery is a trip. Nothing flavorwise that rocks my world yet, but they are almost cartoonishly fun to look at. Bottom line, try the beef empanadas. And the green sauce from Mami Nora's just around the corner is a great topping - MN's chicken was too salty for me but the sauces go with so much.
