     As seen on USA TODAY – 2012

Located in Old East Dallas (Lakewood) and Downtown Dallas  (Dallas Farmers Market) inside Shed 2, La Popular Tamale House has been serving the best tamales in Dallas since 1984. We are a family owned restaurant founded by Jesse Moreno, Sr. He wanted a place where people in the neighborhood could go and get delicious food in a nice comfortable atmosphere. Now people come in from all over to enjoy the food and the company. “My father has always been adamant about using the highest quality of ingredients and trying to find what we need at the Farmers Market,” says Jesse Jr.

“Everyone in the family who takes part in the business is expected to be knowledgeable in everything from washing the pots and pans to managing the kitchen.”

Come on in and try the best tamales around and take part of a great family atmosphere. Not only is La Popular a great place to pick up authentic food, but it’s also about the experience of talking with the Moreno’s about what’s going on in the community. From our family to yours, you are always welcome. Dallas Observer Best Christmas Tamales- 2011 Read more….
