“Don't be afraid to go here”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Best hot tamales in South Arkansas. While this property does not look like a place you might go, it is so clean and the food is all delicious. Good Southern cooking. The hot tamales are fabulous. You can see Rhoda here or driving around the area in her van selling tamales and delicious homemade pies. A true experience.

Can't get any better pie and tamales! We stop here every trip past Lake Village. Honest, hardworking folks and great good in the land of Sonics and McDonalds!

“Good but too greasy”
Reviewed March 19, 2011

The tamales are very good but a too greasy for my taste (and I'm Mexican). Add that to the spices and prepare yourself for some heartburn if you eat too many of them.

With the few options available in Lake Village, this is a recommended stop but make sure you arrive early because the restaurant location is a little creepy at night.
