Roosevelt Tamale Parlor

Roosevelt Tamale Parlor

Top on the list is anything with the word "tamale" in it. The pork tamale, monstrous in size and savory to no end, is sauced magnificently with rich, reddish-brown glory, and it will send you straight to naptime should you indulge in the whole thing plus the accompanying pinto beans, rice and iceberg lettuce (oh yeah, got to love the berg). Go ahead, ask for a side of thick, fresh guacamole and sour cream. Take the nap. Feel good.

This is a classic, classic place that started pumping out tamales for the public in 1919. It's been remodeled, with a clean, fresh look.
