Tamale prices plummet.....beer drinkers benefit !

JSM | Feb 20, 2004 09:08 AM

Having a beer with a friend last night at Foley's when in walks a tamale vendor.Not an uncommon occurence on this stretch of Irving,however this guy was new.

Between the two of us we scored a half dozen of the chili and cheese and a half dozen of the pork along with a nice salsa verde.
Turned out to be some of the best tamales I've had in quite some time,but heres the kicker.$4.00 for 6 down from the usual $5.00.

What give's here?..a tamale turf war? is this some new street level economic indicator,or maybe just a slow night for Senor Tamale?
