Delishiousness!!!

I've been here multiple times and drive thru is fast despite being packed at times. Customer service was excellent. I recommend the chicken and cheese tamales but pork and beef are pretty good too.

I was so disappointed last visit to NOLA when my childhood favorite tamale stand, Manuels, had permanently closed. Delia's was recommended to me and we ordered a sampling of various tamales and were not only pleased, but happy to say that these are THE BEST TAMALES I have eaten in years, maybe ever!
