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 :)

If you are expecting real mexican tamales...you will be very disappointed...they arent by any means...actually they are a form of what is known as corn rolls around Chicago...are a product handed down for years derived from the slaves in the Delta and the mexican workers that were brought in sometimes to help during cotton picking...they exchanged recipes and did things...

My father grew up in Corinth eating these. When I was a little girl we lived in Alabama and would visit my great grandmother every weekend. This place was my favorite place to eat. Now whenever we are near Corinth my 13 year old daughter reminds us to stop and get her tamales. Definitely a family tradition.

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.

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!

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.
