Tamales for Relatives visiting from Houston

We love the Bean & Cheese tamales. We also ordered the pork meat. In December, I had to order 3 weeks in advance to avoid a line of more than 100 hungry customers. I am glad Delia's has opened more locations in order to keep up with the demand. My relative take 8-10 dozens of tamales to Houston to... read more

My husband redeemed himself with this place. The tamales were great. We both ordered some and enjoyed them so much we got some for the road. The spice was just right. The place is clean and the staff is friendly.

I always look for new places to eat when I travel and saw the good reviews for Delia's. To confirm, I asked the hotel staff and they totally agreed. Nothing fancy, some locations may be carry out only but if you like tamales, then do not pass this up. They are fresh, tasty and there are quite a lot of... More

Delia's offers a wide range of variety. Pork, beef, chicken, beans, cheese, jalapeños... There's even sweet tamales! You can order online & have them delivered right to your door.

There is no question that Delia's has the best tamales ever. There is a new restaurant that opened up. Very pretty on the outside but a little to cozy for me. I also like picking up some rice and beans from somewhere else. Delia's only has tamales. I wish they started serving sides. Then it would be perfection.

First off, let me start by saying the employees are great. Secondly like I stated in the title, these are the best tamales I have ever had. The spicy chicken and spicy pork are absolutely delicious. Give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

No other tamales come close. A must for anyone wanting to try authentic tamales. They also have menudo available but I'd stick with the tamales.

They are overpriced and the machines took over the homemade flavor. They are thin and not enough filling.

The last few years, I have been sending my brother and sister and their families Delia Tamales. They get so excited when Christmas comes around because of all the things they miss from the Valley is Delia's Tamales!! It was easy to go online and order them and then I didn't have to worry a bit about getting gifts to... More
