Como esta la tamalada raza? means how does it go here? Meaning what is the usual conduct/or way of doing things. It could also mean what is up. This term is mostly used by the tanfi club stemming from calexico, ca which is composed largely of mexicans.
As someone walks into a house or a meeting place they can say to the others who are already there, "Como esta la tamalada raza?" as a way of greeting or as a way of knowing what is going on in this place.
