The tamales are delicious. The owner is friendly and a joy to talk to while waiting for her to package the tamales. Love the punch cards she has, great idea and more of a reason to come back. Got a dozen of chicken and another of pork and they were both delicious! Salsa is delicious also. I miss my moms tamales so having these homemade ones make me feel at home. Love supporting this local lady!

Looking for authentic tamales? This is the place. Take it from a Mexican who grew up making tamales in South Texas. These are the best tamales I’ve had outside of my mom’s house. This lady (owner) puts a lot of heart and authentic flavor. The salsa is also amazing. Her bright and warm spirit makes you feel “en casa” (home).

Ordered in advance based on reviews. Picked them up and they smelled so good had to taste test. Circled around and got 2 more dozen. Can't wait to get back to hotel to dig in. Such a nice lady, loved the story about how the Outlaw name came to be!!

a little Outlaw history...

It began quite a few years ago now, thank God.  We got our start when my son asked me to make him tamales for Christmas.  Of course, I made too many and we had the idea to put the extras on Craigslist. Within 30 minutes, the phone was ringing and they were all sold out.  It seems like a great idea to try again, so we did.  This time much like in the 'lower 48' selling them from the back of a car in the grocery store parking lot. However, true to Alaska, it was 40 below.☃
The food police didn't find this to be a good idea at all, and chased us around earning us the title Outlaw Tamales. Before long, with help from God, family and friends, our business opened and has flurished in the city of North Pole.
