Best tamales in town: Behind every good restaurant is a person who loves to eat. If you find yourself dining at a fabulous place, scare up the courage to ask the chef for his or her favorite spot in town.

I love Las Tortugas Deli Mexicana; Pepe’s refusal to Americanize his Mexican food, and for the best tamales in town. - Chef Kelly English
