Best Tamales

Tucson Tamale Company

When you buy homemade tamales from someone going door-to-door, or from a vendor outside of a supermarket, you know the goods are probably ... well, good. But you can never be sure. Besides, those tamales don't come with salsa, sour cream or whatever else you might like with them. At the Tucson Tamale Company, however, everything's always fresh—and you might not need any condiment but hunger. This place's tamales come in flavorful varieties, from familiar green chile and chicken to vegan varieties. Eat 'em while they're hot.
