Ate two tamales there and bought a dozen home to enjoy later!
Excellent and so different than any tamale I ever tasted.
Larry and Nicholas were very friendly!

Being a Texan we were a little skeptical about tamales in Mississippi but wanted to give them a try. They were amazing! Wished we lived closer so we could come back!

This was our last stop in Mississippi before we went to Memphis. My wife and I had never had Southern Tamales before. We went into the restaurant and waited on a short line for service. We were able to observe Larry preparing eveyone's order. He seemed to know everyone in the place. A very friendly atmosphere. We ordered our tamales to stay but were unsure on how to eat them. Larry noticed and asked another customer to give us a lesson. The tamales were awesome. My wife wanted to take Larry back to New York! He got a big kick out of that statement and told each new customer that he was closing up shop and moving to New York with us. After our meal, he showed us how he makes the tamales. Great food and a great time!

Larry is a great guy, full of nice stories and this restaurant is his life. Even if he was a bit sad to retire soon. So go there asap to get the taste in this feel-good place. He send tamales all over the palce by Fedex: London, Austin, Washington, amazing!

Tamales are great, and so are the ribs. Sauce is very tasty ! Service is excellent. Visited twice, will definitely go back.
