These are little different in shape but very similar in taste to most other genuine Mississippi tamales. I loved them! Bought 5 dozen, $4 a dozen, what a deal! To me, a dozen is a little more than a serving, maybe a serving if your...More

Homemade tamales--all you can eat! I dip them in ketchup and hot sauce and drink a cold one. Excellent. Also soup/stew and desserts.

My grandfather and father began eating Dilworth's when it first opened. I was raised on their tamales, and I'm looking forward to taking my son to carry on the tradition.

Good tamales - from a place that has been providing take-out for more than 50 years. Each Tamale is small, so buy several for a meal. They used to sell tamales from the back of a bicycle back in the day :)
