Wow! Delicious

News of this place has spread through my family like wildfire. Though we all live more than two hours away from Lake Village, any time we're traveling through, we make a point to go visit Rhoda and have some of her delicious tamales.

Rhoda's is an icon in southeast Arkansas. Rhoda is an institution unto herself. Best homemade tamales anywhere. She pushes her fresh homemade pies! They are pretty and delicious. Bring some tamales home after enjoying her downtime soul food. Might not look like much but font be afraid to go, you will be inspired. Call ahead to make sure it is... More

I stopped and got two dozen tamales and couldn't wait until I got home to try one, so I ended up being short several tamales before reaching home lol. I'm definitely going to stop there again for the tamales and I might give the pie a try.

I didn't know what to expect when my husband suggested we eat here. It was something we will never forget. If you're going here and are expecting a restaurant then you will be disappointed. Imagine going to Mrs. Rhoda's house and having lunch. We had a wonderful time visiting with her and her family. We shared stories, pictures and recipes.... More

Owners James and Rhoda Adams have been married for more than 60+ years. They work together to provide one of the best burgers eith their own d pecisl flavors. Size and quality are a bargain. Throw in some homemade pie and you know you are in Foodie Heaven. Worth the time to seek out this very unpretentious location.

Such friendly people I really want to give it a good review, but just cannot do it. I ordered a dozen tamales and chicken fingers to go. I was hoping for some good homemade chicken, like Gus's in Tennessee, but ended up with a standard frozen chicken tenders and potato wedges. They were fine mind you, but was really hoping... More

The tamales, burgers, pies, etc. here are outstanding. The true measure of an eating establishment is will you come back? The answer to Rhodas is yes, yes, yes. Five stars!

Don't miss out on the experience of Rhonda's Famous Tamales. The tamales were fantastic as well as the hamburger. We got a mini sweet potato and mini lemon pie, heavenly. Decided to order two doz tamales, a whole sweet potato and lemon pie to take back home. Miss Rhonda was a pure delight to visit with.
