Taqueria El Rodeo, for my money the best Mexican food in town, has upped the ante further: tamales. Today they were the lunch special, three generous tamales – at least one more than I needed, truth be told – for $6.99. Excellent, easily the best tamale I’ve had in a week (wink, wink).
Cesar and the boys are going to be making them on Thursdays, so weekends are your best bets. But if you’ve got the fever for this Mexican comfort food, call anytime (573-875-8048) and ask if they’ve got ’em. Mine today were equal to – if more traditional than – Mike’s up at Lonnie Ray’s.
