Sacramento: Where to find tamales on Christmas Day or Eve?

I prefer finding someplace near or along Franklin Blvd. Thanks

  1. They just had an article in today's Sacramento Bee about tamales and where to find them. It doesn't specify whether they would still be available on those particular days however. They list La Esperanza Bakery- 5044 Franklin Blvd 455-0215 and Carniceria Lopez #2-6201 Franklin Blvd 393-5957. Good luck!

    1. On Christmas Eve or Christmas Day may be tough, but call around and see if you can pick up frozen ones from any carniceria ahead of time, or buy them now and freeze them.
