Wow what can I say besides fantastic and wonderful!! We catered from Malena's for a dinner party we had yesterday and everyone could not stop raving about the food! The chicken croquets were gone before I could even have one! The ropa vieja was absolutely delicious. Rice was awesome. Malena provided a flan cheesecake that was just as good. What can I say besides you cannot go wrong with her catering your event! We will be getting some dishes again for thanksgiving and Christmas for sure. The tamales omg yummy ! Thank you sooo much for making our event a hit! More...

We order from Malena’s Catering often. The service we receive is awesome. Food is on time and packaged nicely. Everything we order is absolutely delicious! Today we go to try Venison Tamales and Jalapeño Cheddar bread. Both were AMAZING! The one thing we forgot was the delicious cheesecake! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ More...
Best food and wonderful owner! She’s so sweet and is always willing to work with her customers. She values every single one of her customer relationships and always strives to be the best she can be. That kind of dedication to a business along with tasty food makes for an awesome experience. More...
Malena makes the BEST tamales and food in town. She always makes room to place your orders (as long as theirs enough time in the day. Since she does so many orders AND works). I have never had an issue with placing an order and getting it on time, not to mention it tasting anything but AMAZING. She is the definition of small business, who truly cares about her customers and makes sure each order is perfect. You will never have an issue with communication or your order being wrong. 10/10 recommend over any other tamales and cheesecakes in Houston. More...
Best Tamales around!! So many amazing choices and great customer service!!
By far the best tamales in my area! Not only are the tamales amazing, the customer service is amazing. Every order I place is delivered to my doorstep in a styrofoam cooler. They are always hot and fresh. Her homemade red and green salsas are a great bonus. I get both with every order. I've had her brisket, pork, cheese and jalapeño, and chicken tamales. She has even custom made vegan tamales for family members, loaded with chopped veggies and made with vegetable lard. I placed my order for Christmas tamales by her November deadline and I can't WAIT until our annual Christmas Eve party! More...
My husband is a tamale fanatic and in the 11 years that we have been together, Malena's tamales are by far his favorite!!! She is so personable and easy to work with, even offering delivery. Do yourself a favor and just order from her! You will not be sorry! More...
Best tamales I've had since moving away from home! And it helps that she is super friendly! :)
My family and I always order tamales for the holidays. She is the best....
I tell ya. This catering is by the far best! The food is amazing!!!
We tried the pork tamales today.... Will definitely be trying the brisket next! Tamales are da bomb!!!❤️❤️❤️

The salsa is HOT!!!!! and the tamales are delicious!!! I ordered chicken tamales, and pork tamale both were excellent!!! They were very delicious and moist, and with a generous helping of meat. The salsa was very fresh nice and spicy and warm. I was very excited to have this for dinner tonight, everything was nice and hot when she gave it to me. I will definitely be a return customer!!!

I have a secret but this secret cannot get out to my mom. For years all I ever ate was my mom tamales, I thought they were the best in town. Then I heard about Malena's tamales.
SSSHHHHHH NOBODY SAY ANYTHING.
Thank you Malena. More...

Best tamales I’ve ever had. I’ve been ordering for 3 years now and this is always my first choice and only choice
Gracie Ann Martinez
WOW!! My family does not make homemade tamales and every year around this time we all start doing our own research to find the best tamales in town. Malena's was quick, easy and the tamales are GREAT for the price. Customer service was 10's across the board. I will definitely order more! The red salsa is hot and yummy, too. More...

Breakfast Tacos and Salsa were a hit for my Employees! Thank you Malena's Catering
These are the BEST tamales we have ever tasted and they are at fair prices. Particularly tasty are the pork and brisket (our favorites). Also, they are easy to order and are delivered fresh and hot. Your moth will thank you!!! More...

Having grown up in Friendswood and always loving the tamale truck, I had seen great reviews of Malena’s tamales and thought I would give it a try. Hands down the best tamale I’ve ever had. We tried the pork and brisket. These tamales are filled with good quality meat. My hubby doesn’t even care for tamales much but we love our Texas tradition of having them on Christmas Eve, and he said that they were outstanding. The green sauce is the only one we tried and it was excellent. Still have almost 2 dozen left and ready to order more! More...

I was raised in Laredo, I know what tamales should look and taste like, my mother was an expert tamales maker, since she passed I ate tamales from different sources, nothing like hers, until I met Malenas Catering, her tamales remind me of those December nights when my mother made them, just the right texture on the masa and the meat has the right spices, her tamales are never dry like most out there and they are not bulky with too much masa( corn meal) thanks for reviving my childhood memories
Best Tamales I’ve ever had. I used to drive to Austin to get Roses tamale house tamales... Now I just order from Malena... I can’t wait to try that Enchilada casserole!! More...
I ordered tamales for Christmas and they were fantastic! I ordered beef, pork, chicken and bean & cheese. Our favorite, by far, had to be the bean and cheese! I ordered on her website and received a confirmation of the time to pick up my order. Highly recommend trying these! More...
