It’d been quite awhile since I had a good tamale. The summer heat wave hasn’t exactly been Tamale weather. But the fall winds got me craving tamales so I headed down to the always reliable Tamales Albertos. Whoa! New paint job inside and out.

The price of their tamales also went up to $1.50 a piece from $1.30. (That paint must’ve been expensive.)

The flavor is still good and the green chile chicken pack a nice, spicy punch. I did notice that the amount of filling is less than it was when we first reviewed “Albertos.” This left the masa to filling balance a bit off for me.

Other changes are longer hours (open until 8pm) and someone actually speaks English.

Still a good deal.
