Mexican - Alamo Tamales - A Houston Institution
I remember Christmases, driving by Alamo Tamales Factory and seeing cars in line way down the street, waiting to pick up their holiday tamales.
Alamo is a Houston institution, historically significant. There are several locations now but my favorite is still the original at 809 Berry Road. They have expanded from their simple tamale roots and the location now features an excellent panaderia, an events room, and offers lunch comidas, steam table style.
Although known for their northern Mexico style tamales, I think of this place for their superb flour tortillas, some of the best in Houston in my opinion.
