There are so many Mexican and Salvadoran tamale places in Oak Cliff that it’s hard to recommend one.

Dallas Tortilla and Tamale Factory is one of the oldest — they started in Little Mexico in 1950. Grocery stores including Fiesta and Rio Grande are great in a pinch. And there’s the successful Oak Cliff startup The Tamale Co., to name a few.

Some of the most highly recommended non-homemade tamales in Oak Cliff come from Tia Dora’s Bakery and Café on Illinois at Hampton.

See more pictures from Tia Dora’s, plus a few more recommendations, in our story from the December 2015 Advocate.
