Wrapping food in husks dates back to ancient hunter-gatherers, who lured cooked masa and woolly mammoths' pinky toes into cornhusk traps. Ensnare evolved tamales with today's Groupon to Tamale's Industry. Choose between the following:

  • For $9, you get two tamale combo meals (a $19.06 value including tax).
  • For $18, you get four tamale combo meals (a $38.12 value including tax).

Each combo meal includes the following:

  • Choice of two tamales
  • One side of rice
  • One side of beans
  • Mexican soup

Tamale's Industry's masa-mashing chef populates a menu with three generations of authentic family comestibles tucked inside cornhusk shells. Twin tamale combos ($8.99 each) rig games of Red Light, Green Light for certain victory with a mild salsa roja and a spicy salsa verde. Made-to-order sides of rice and frijoles fill remaining internal crevices, ensuring that stomachs don't fall prey to wintry drafts. Pineapple, strawberry, and orange dessert tamales sate sweet teeth, and each fruity wrap places a confectionary cap on the light meal. As twosomes await their corn-centric combos, they can converse with the friendly staff or daydream of throwing cilantro confetti in the avocado-colored dining area.
