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 :)

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.

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...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...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.
