Our kind of fast food!

When driving through Corinth on a Monday, we were looking for a quick lunch and several TA reviewed restaurants were closed. This turned out to be a good thing because we loved these tamales. We ordered a dozen of the hot version and we were eating our $3.50 lunch within minutes. Our camper would... read more

This is not an easy place to find but it's worth the hunt if you're looking for good basic tamales and truly wonderful welcoming service! These are not the meat filled tamales of lower Miss, but rather they are corn meal tamales - long and lean and flavorful. We got 6 mild and 6 hot, and the hots were what... More

Just okay. Wrapped in parchment paper and not in corn husks. Very small tamales and not tasty as one should expect. We won't go back. Too bad expected much more.

This place is open and serving up the best tamales east of the Mississippi River! Dilworth's has been a Corinth staple for decades. If you find yourself in Corinth for any reason, don't leave without picking up a few of these bad boys for your enjoyment.

I don't believe you would be able to find this place if you didn't know it was there or if you didn't have a good GPS. The building is pretty nondescript. There is no dining in or place to sit. It is drive through only. I drove up the the window and the lady taking orders was extremely friendly and... More

I grew up eating great tamales and it's been awhile since enjoying them. While in Corinth, made the effort to visit Dilworth's. Found it easy, but wasn't sure it was open until finally seeing the small "open" sign in drive in window. When driving up, someone came to the window right away to take my order. On the safe side,...

Very down to earth, great fun. Food was EXCELLENT. Apparantly, Dillworth's is an institution in Corinth. It has been there forever. Now I see why.

Dilworth's Tamales are a staple of Corinth. They are great, and anyone who likes tamales will like these. Seek them out, purchase them, consume them, and be filled. Then come back again and again. I recommend them without hesitation.

While tamales are not my favorite food, my hubby and family absolutely raved about these. They have been in Corinth for years at the same place and I can't remember the last time they went up on their prices! They are easy to eat as you don't have to deal with those shucks. I recommend Dilworth's as the place for... More
