Hot Damn, Tamales! started in Austin in 1997 and relocated to Fort Worth in May 1999. The tamale company specializes in made-from-scratch tamales rolled in real cornhusks from Mexico. While the technique is traditional the ingredients vary from traditional to specialty tamales that offer non-traditional combinations of ingredients.

The tamale factory ships nationwide and also offers a restaurant where people can dine in or take-out tamales seven days a week.

Congratulations to Hot Damn, Tamales!
