I wish we had time to order more! Excellent. Just visiting in the area and love little places like this. Authentic. You won't be sorry - don't let the location or very casual non-decor trip you up. Go in- relax & enjoy

We bought 6 dozen tamales to bring back to the UK. Luckily my mom froze them and we packed in a second nearly empty suitcase in a freezer cool bag. This time we did not get charged extra for the weight of tamales in our cases. They are the best in the world!

We love love love Delia's Tamales, in fact we don't eat tamales from anywhere else. They are the best by far and available in so many options.....chicken, spicy chicken, pork, cream cheese and jalapeno, and many more. Those are just our favorites. We are so happy that the numbers of locations has expanded and we now have one fairly close... More

Before Delia's Tamales, except for Thanksgiving and Christmas tamales were difficult to find. And even when you found a location that had tamales, there was no variety. Generally the only filling in most tamales was pork. I DO NOT EAT PORK! So, I rarely had tamales. And then, Delia's Tamales opened 1 location. And I could have bean or chicken... More

Tamales for everyday or special occasions. Always consistent. We have been purchasing tamales from Delias for years. When they had only one location. Just good good at a fair price.

My family lives in the Valley and my mom grey up just behind the first Delia's tamales place, which used to be a corner store. When we visit now, this is by far one of the first things we eat! Prepare to purchase in batches. They sell by half a dozen and dozen with such a variety all at decent... More

I love tamales, but it's really hard to find a good tamale with the perfect masa. Dahlia tamales meet and beat all my expectation. The green sauce it's so hot but I'm addicted! I could eat a dozen! they just slide right down my throat the most delicious tamales I've ever had!

Need I say more???? Oh, ok...you can buy them frozen so if you have to travel a long way they stay fresh. Lots of variety, good prices, absolutely delicious.

Followed TA reviews to Delia's and returned on my way out of The Valley taking several dozen frozen pork tamales home! Stocking stuffers? Possibly! Great variety and price. On our RGV must-do list now.

Delia's had been around for a long time and they have awesome tamales! They have a large variety of tamales and they are always fresh, hot and ready anytime you go in for a dozen or two😉...they taste homemade only at least I don't have to spend my time making these which is a big plus for me. For anyone... More
