Johnsons Tamale Grotto was a Johnson family run business.It started in 1906 in Sacramento and later relocated to San Francisco. It was a very sucessful family run organization. The business was sold sometime in the late sixties or early seventies. Bob Johnson was the last surving member of the original Johnson family and he passed away in January of 2008.He drove a Mercedes with a license plate that said TAMALE. He would have loved that the business that he loved would still be talked about today. We, his family Thank You for keeping the memories alive.
