To-go or casual eat-in at the counter. Darryl "D" Crocket's family has been making tamales for more than 40 years based on an authentic recipe from Mexico given to his aunt. Advertised as "husk-suckin' good," D's tamales have garnered praise on the Al.com food and wine board, with writers comparing them favorably to the old Mancha's on Southside, the local tamale standard: "... absolutely perfect, not to mention really cheap... These husk wrapped little beauties had a wonderfully moist consistancy ... this little shop is a real jewel."
