Yuma - Alberto's Tamales

I drove through Yuma last week and located a yummy little lunch spot. It's called Alberto's Tamales, and it's actually inside an old pharmacy. An old-fashioned lunch counter, except with wonderful Mexican food? Yep. It was certainly a step into the past. I ordered the carnitas torta. The meat was lean and crispy. The bun was fresh, and grilled with a bit of butter on the flat grill. Mmmmm. It also came with a side of fries, cooked to perfection. I ordered a beef tamale for the road, and it was also delicious.

And - the final damage? $5.

It's right across from a gas station, so check it out if you're ever passing through.
