Location Description:

A Houston institution since 1960, Alamo Tamale has not just branched out into several different locations around the city, but can be had from anywhere in the country. Yep, you can order their tamales online and they'll second-day-air them to you anywhere in the continental United States. The tamales are still made according to old family recipes, and hand-wrapped before shipping. The Tamale Factories themselves offer only take-out and delivery.
