Delia's has several restaurants, so you can find one close to you. Delia's has earned a reputation for having a wide variety of tamales for every taste. Christmas time is tamale time, so Delia's is usually swamped. Put your order in early! You won't be disappointed, but go with adventurous taste buds!

They have only tamales, but they must have a dozen different types of tamales, i.e. chicken, pork, beef, etc. these are the real thing! Tasty meat, seasoned perfectly, and in the corn husk. Yes... It works best to take out of the husk before eating.

For all of you that are not familiar with a tamale this is not a good place to try them to judge others by because these are made PERFECT every time. The ingredients (massa) are fresh and the meats are abundant and perfectly spiced. They have a huge clientele so expect a line. YOu can order one at a time but get a dozen because they are THAT GOOD. Great to freeze and have for a snack.

Without question, these are the best tamales anywhere. You will be quite amazed with the flavor and variety of choices. The sauce is equally fresh and tasty. Also, bathroom and kitchen which you can see into are really clean.
Great example of knowing what you do well and perfecting your talent. DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING !
