I've had the Pleasure of eating Dilworths Hot Tamales' all my life. My Grandmaw owned a cafe acroos the street from Dilworths when I was a child & I grew up enjoying them. "IF YOU WANT MILD, SAY MILD WHEN YOU ORDER" DELICIOUS!

I love tamales but these are some kind of extruded dough product with some flavoring. This all they sell and the locals love them. But it is not the real thing at all.

There is no where else in the USA that you can get tamales like this to my knowledge besides Corinth. We love eating here every time we come home for a visit. My husband and I have eaten Dillworth Tamales since our childhood and will as long as they are open!

If you want to experience the true southern tamales, these are unlike others. They are thin and full of flavor! These are not like the Delta tamales, not like Mexican tamales, but unique and very delicious! Dilworth's has been a Corinth institution for many years for a reason!

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 not fit through the drive through,... 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,...
