Awesome tamales! If you like tamales, this is the place to go. The only problem is that is all they serve. No reason to go into the actual restaurant; I just pick up some tamales and take them home.

just about any of the delias locations in Pharr and San Juan as well make the best tamales. Lots of meat or filling which I like compared with cheap tamales that have lots of masa and very little filling. I'm never disappointed. I love the beef, chicken & cheese, and green chili chicken & cheese. The side salsas can be... More

Have purchased Tamales from Delia's for several years. They are by far, the best, in McAllen area. The 'salsas' are also delicious...

If you're looking for great tasting tamales...look no further than Delia's Tamales. I pick up a dozen at least once a week(my favorite is their SPICY CHICKEN). They have a speedy drive-thru system that makes it easy to pick up and go. If you want any tamales during the holidays(Thanksgiving & Christmas season) you need to call and order ahead... More

Mexican food isn't my favorite food, but I will admit these are very good! I wasn't even sure what a tamale was when we first discovered Delia's...but quickly joined in with the rest of our friends and rated them as excellent! Be a bit careful as to how much heat you want in adding sauces from the condiment table. Sample... More

Didn't eat in Delia's, but went twice for take-out tamales while visiting McAllen. I expected two choices of tamales, got a dozen or more: pork, chicken, beef, bean, cheese, spicy, regular, even cream cheese. When I saw the prices, I thought, "How can these be as good as everyone says they are?" They were. Enough said. Go get in line... More

If you like tamales, Delia's is the place to go. We stop in on Sunday's after church and pick up a couple of dozen so we can have leftovers all week long. You can eat in or go through the always-busy-but-quick drive through. Chicken with cheese and pork are our favorites, and we highly recommend their dessert tamale made with... More

Recommended by a fellow RV'er at our RV park. My husband loves tamales so we just had to try them & they were really good. A wide variety of choices is available so it is hard to decide which to try. You can order 1/2 dozen or dozen. You order at the counter & your order is ready quickly. Waitstaff... More
