Landmark Bertha’s Tamales Goes Up in Flames

In February of 2015, the Founder of World Famous Hummingbird Highway Tamales, Bertha Lisbey passed away at age seventy-eight. But business continued as usual as her daughter, Aurora carried on the tradition at the well known location. But less than a year after, tragedy struck once again because on New Year’s Eve, the popular shed at mile twenty-five on the Hummingbird Highway went up in flames. While the structure was small, the list of visitors was way long as Bertha’s Tamales was a must stop for persons, local and international, traveling south.  Years ago, News Five as well as CNN aired stories on the iconic tamales stand. Here’s that story.

    Thanks, Channel 5, for airing my story on Ms Bertha’s tamales shop and a portion of my interview with the snake man after his first snake bite. These are a good birthday gift!
