I just bought 30 tamales for two different pot luck birthday parties. Excellent! They were scarfed up in less than 5 minutes at both parties. The consensus was that the pineapple tamales were the best, but they were all delicious. This was my first time to La Mascota but it came highly recommended by friends. They did not steer me wrong. The place is clean and well organized and rather wonderful. I can't wait to go back.

The Best of ELA
My family and I have purchased the tamales and "pan dulce," for over 30 yrs. Now that we are out of the "county" we travel 20 miles once a month to buy those delicious items!! Being hispanic and knowing what an awesome tasty tamale is, these are close to my New Mexico upbringing ones. La Mascota has clean establishment and if you go between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m., on a "regular" Saturday the lines are not long at all. It's worth making the trip and devouring them on the premise, because I promise you...you won't make it home without munching out, first! Ditto on it being the finest!

Finaly I can say "you are all right"! this is one of the best tamale, pan dulce places in Boyle Heights. The place is always lively with happy people and the staff is pleasant. The food and beverages are as authentic as they can get without crossing the border. The champurado, atole and hot chocolate is all traditionaly made with the Mexican influence. The pan dulce is always fresh and sometimes if you get there at the right time...warm and soft right out of the oven.
One tip about getting the tamales around the holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year) GET THERE EARLY! I dont mean get there an hour before you need to be somewhere I mean a couple of hours becasue the line will exit the bakery and head down Whittier Blvd sometimes!

Pros: True autentic Mexican panaderia

Cons: long lines during holidays

.

the tamales, menudo, sweet breads(huge selection), cakes, breads, much more. don't even try to go at the last minute during the holidays, i suggest you pre-order and if you do try it expect long lines. there is now parking in the back.

Pros: everything is good, i go there frequently

Cons: none

I have been buying menudo, pan dulce, cakes and course their tamales for years. One of my favorite things as a kid was going with my dad to pick up some menudo on Sunday morning and watching their staff ground the corn or prepare the tamales by hand. Everything they make here is the way my grandmother used to make it. And you know what I love it.

Walking into the place is an automatic warm fuzzy. La Mascota can do no wrong.

In my travels across the country I would always find tamale makers and spend a lot more money for fresh tamales, but they would never compare. Every time I came back to Los Angeles I would always make sure to stop by La Mascota and pick up a couple dozen tamales to take home and freeze. I would savor them slowly over the next few weeks. They are the bomb and cannot be compared. La Mascota is a hidden treasure that only residents of Boyle Heights know about. I guess it does pay to be born in East LA.

Pros: everything in the place

Cons: lack of available parking

Wow! These tamales are delicious. I've tried the cheese tamales and they are really soft and full of melted cheese. Now the only problem is that I don't live any closer to the bakery so that I can eat here all the time!

This bakery has to be L.A.'s finest for homemade chips, cakes, Mexican pastries & mosly for their famous "tamales". Literally, people come from all over So. California to buy tamales from La Moscota. They have been in the same locale for over 50 years, and now have a newer side building where you can watch tamales and the like being made. There are little tables inside and out, so that you can have your treats warmed up, RIGHT THERE, to eat right away. On the weekends, come early in the morning to get homemade posole. We usually get pork and chicken tamales, they are the best and will melt in your mouth. The prices are so low, you might want to stock up and keep some frozen for surprise company or a midnight snack, though I doubt there would be any left to freeze. The service is great, prices and taste unsurpassed!

PROS: Quick, fantastic flavor, friendly, family owned
CONS: Sometimes parking is sometimes hard, and weekend a.m. lines long
