PORT LAVACA, Texas – Recently, Lavaca BBQ restaurant was mentioned in Texas Monthly and recognized for their unique tamale recipe.

Lately this semi-local barbeque restaurant has gotten a lot of buzz because their menu includes interesting options featuring a Mexican twist.

They are famous for their tamales and the owner, Lupe Nevarez, has even trained his daughter to take over running the restaurant.

Some options on the food menu are their blue corn tortillas, a semi-sweet barbeque sauce, a barbeque gumbo, and mac-n-cheese with your choice of meat added to it.

Nevarez said “The last one was 1 of the top 20 bites in the state of Texas. So Texas monthly has made their rounds and our tamale was one of the most memorable items that they’ve tasted all year. We’ve won for the county, best of Calhoun county, we’ve won 16 first place for awards which is anything from best BBQ, best restaurant, customer service, and many others that we’ve won.”

Their most unique item on the menu are the 4 types of tamales that is wrapped in an orange flour dough, instead of the traditional white dough for Mexican tamales. Plus each tamale has a quarter pound of meat in it.
