Absolutely fabulous tamales but hard to find. The signage is on the side of the building not the front. Most of the business is drive through but if you knock at the door, Eugene Hicks will unlock it and allow you to dine inside. The tamales reminded me of the best Bolognese I ever had. Mr. Hicks said he never heard that before but admitted he got his first restaurant training in the kitchen of an Italian supermarket in Clarksdale. He FedExes to celebrities and others too. The real deal!

We make his journey every couple of years and have to stop here for the best tamales ever!!! Don't miss out! It may look like they are a drive thru only but if you go during the day just knock on the door and they will let you in. Mr. & Mrs Hicks have been doing this a long time and they have it right! Best ever!

We ate here on our blues hiway trip and the tamales were very good. From the front they looked closed, but on the side of the building they have a drive up window that we ordered from.

worth a stop if you're in the area.

We had planned to go to Larry's Hot Tamales but it was closed. We stumbled upon Hicks and it also looked closed. However, a lady opened the front door and told us that we could come in or order from the drive thru. We opted to order a dozen hot tamales from the drive thru. We are not from the area, and so these were a bit different from any other tamales that we had eaten. We truly enjoyed these hot tamales. Yummy.

We drove up on a rainy January afternoon. There were cars going through the drive-through but the front door was locked. Owner came out and opened the door. We came for the tamales and were not disappointed. They were about the best tamales we've had on multiple trips to the Delta....and we've eaten a lot of Delta tamales.
