JACKSON - Tamales at Bop's Frozen Custard

rebadiva | Dec 9, 201002:09 PM     2

Okay - I know this sounds strange, but my husband and I enjoyed some great tamales at Bop's Frozen Custard on County Line Rd this weekend. My husband, who is half Mexican and was raised in Queens, NY, nearly cried after tasting one. He declared it a cross between the Mexican tamales of his youth and the Jamican Beef Patties you can find on the streets of NYC. We asked the servers where the tameles came from and we were told, "Some guy in north Mississippi makes 'em, and aren't they good?". We only moved to Jackson recently, so maybe these tamales are indicative of all Mississippi tamles...if so, we are psyched!

BTW: We only stopped at Bop's b/c I felt I deserved a special treat after braving Sam's during the holiday season - their Snappy Turtle Sundaes are to die for! Bop's does charge for a cup of water, though, and that REALLY irks me.
