i was told by my hairdresser that Lucy's tamales were amazing. I placed my order in advance as the groupon requests. Upon arrival, the lady had no record of my order. she finally found it and said I would have to wait an hour. I drove from santa cruz so I was not happy. the tamales were very dry loaded with the outside stuff but barely anything on the inside. won't buy again.

Confirm what you order several times may want someone bilingual to do so. The tamales are good but the service no bueno.

The person there did not come to the counter after numerous attempts toting the bell and call out. Even though I was there well before closing they were out of most of the types of tamales.

Delicious, fresh, and hot, with all the fixings for a great home cooked meal. Ready at the time you specify. Love Lucy's Tamales.

From Our Editors

The windows of the tiny, tucked-away Lucy’s Tamale Factory remain perpetually fogged. Inside, Lucy and her staff of cooks dart from stovetop to stovetop, steaming massive pots of traditional Mexican tamales—fluffy, authentic cornmeal street fare filled with chicken, pork, or jalapeño. The cooks mix masa and shred meats to craft the treats, winners of numerous awards across the U.S., which emulate the tamales Lucy’s family has made for generations in Durango, Mexico. Their hard work has paid off; their classic handheld delights with no preservatives have earned accolades from festivals and fares across the US. Patrons bustle in and out of their shop to order the tamales individually or by the dozen for special events such as large parties or events where people are required to construct their own hats out of cornhusks.
