The tamale purveyor shared photos on social media of a procession of cars around its building, and fans posted that they’d waited more than four hours to purchase their masa-filled eats by the dozen.
The Northwest San Antonio location is the first to reach beyond the RGV, where six other shops serve up fresh-steamed specialty tamales, salsas and menudo. Before Friday, San Antonians had to plan a day trip for their fix or have the masa-packed fare shipped to their doors.
If waking up at the crack of dawn isn’t your idea of a good time, the restaurant, located at 13527 Hausman Pass, is open for drive-thru service Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m.-8 p.m., and Sundays 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
