Looking for handmade, yummy tamales in Concord - taco truck works so does a grocery store or even a restaurant that does to go ...

Any suggestions?

    I have not bought tamales in Concord for awhile but I remember Mercado del Sol on Monument - about 1/4 mile from 680 on the south side of the street and Las Montanas Market on Willow Pass (near Fry's Electronics) having good tamales.
    Lately I have been buying Tamales on Sat./Sun mornings from the lady who sells them out of her car in the parking lot of La Tapatia Market in Vallejo. (I live on the Vallejo side of the Bridge)

      For Salvadorean style, try Restaurante El Salvador @ Todos Santos Plaza and Los Toros (Meadow Ln off Monument). I also kinda like the elote tamale at Las Montanas.
