Beef Tamale at Roosevelt Tamale Parlor

I have seen that this place gets pretty negative reviews (although I'n not certain whether the negative posts pre-date the change in ownership), but I had a delicious beef tamale there for lunch yesterday. It was unusual in that it was the shape and size of a baseball, and the filling-to-masa ration was skewed toward filling. Spicy ground beef, tasty masa, and a delicious light orange sauce. It had a spiciness that was noticeable by the end. Also had a pork taco. Delicious roasted pork topped with a cabbage slaw that had a sweeter dressing than I would have preferred. All in all a good and very filling meal.
