Drove an hour and a half for tamales and rib tips. It was worth the drive. Got to meet Larry himself, really nice guy. He sure knows how to cook! A must try

Visited at 11an. Inside was so hot. They even had a huge fan running but it was still way too hot. No grill service that day so tamales it had to be. Ok but you can get the same at Walmart.

There isn't much to say about tamales, rib tips, and pulled pork except each is the best in the world at Larry's. I've eaten tamales in Mexico that weren't this good. All done.

Larry Turner is one of the nicest fellows you'll ever meet. His beef tamales are in his own homemade sauce, and they are delicious. The rib tips are pecan wood-smoked and tasty. I ate there twice over my two-day stay. Tells you something, right?

This is the spot for great tamales! They will sell out so don't wait until the end of the day! Will definitely go back!

We were recently in Clarksdale celebrating a friend's birthday. No trip to the Delta is complete without tamales. Larry's was recommended by a friend. It did not disappoint. Sauce was spicy, but not overbearing. Go for a meal, but bring a cooler. You will want...More
