The tamales were good but the ad was mis leading we thought there would be more than one tamale booth to try from.

I was disappointed in the variety of tamale vendors that were available. With it being a TAMALE Festival I would have thought there would be A LOT of different vendors serving tamales.

Adding communal picnic tables or eating spots would have been nice. Not enough good options.

I found the festival to be focused on beers and margaritas. there were only two tamale vendors out of all the places in houston that make / sell tamales. since there was SOME food, perhaps chairs/tables for people to eat at would be good.

It's not particularly large, and there were only 2 tamale vendors at the festival. But the other food was yummy. Just don't think you're going to find anything special - just well made, classic tamales.

From Our Editors

During Tamale Festival Houston, pop-up restaurants spring forth from the earth to serve Tex-Mex foods, including Texas barbecue from local pit masters and, of course, tamales. Celebrating Houston's diverse culture, the two-day event will also showcase non-edible talents with arts and crafts booths, live shows, and musical performances ranging from rock and country to R&B and tejano. Amidst all the action, a tamale-eating contest will determine the festival's hungriest attendee, and a Best Tamale competition will crown the city's top tamales based on their superior flavors, not just superficial criteria such as who's wearing the scantiest corn husk.
