Anyone have suggestions for a place I can get 15-20 tamales to serve at a party? Somewhere from downtown to the beach. Gloria's is the best option, though I haven't bought take-aways from her since the Food Network buzz. Tamara's are a bit pricey.

    If you extend a little East beyond downtown, I recommend Los Cinco Puntos in ELA.

      If you are just ordering on the phone and picking them up I can't see why Gloria's wouldn't be a good option for this need.

        Mama's Tamales, in Macarthur Park. $2.50 each, and worth every penny.
