Vic's Tire (and Tamales) Shop.
Victor's Tire Shop (located at 1406 S. and 700 West) has just about the best tamales I think I've ever eaten in my life. They cost about a dollar each and the service is quick and easy. It might help if you speak some of the espanol (the menu is pretty much 100% Spanish), but there are photos for the gringos like me. Incredibly, incredibly delicious. I want to go back and try a few of the other things on the list, as they're supposed to be old family recipes. And, oh yeah, I'd recommend the tamale that has corn in it, the one they dump a lot of white cheese and sour cream on. It's in one of the photos. Also, to read more about this place, go HERE and read more about its history and such. Maybe Spencer will even come on to talk about how much he loves this place. He was the one to find it and lead us in the right direction, after all.
One more thing ... if you missed this edition of Taco Tuesday, you missed THIS. It was truly glorious.
