You have never tasted tamales like these. And the history of how tamales came to be part of African-American Mississippi culture is really interesting - if Larry's there, ask him!

It was a highly recommended place for tamales so while visiting Clarksdale we planed to stop here for lunch. So we pull up at 1:00 pm on a Saturday only to find the place closed even though Trip Advisor said they were open. Very disappointed...More

We hoped to go to Larry's Hot Tamales when we planned our trip to Clarksdale. However, when we arrived in the middle of the afternoon on a Tuesday, Larry's was closed. How disappointing!

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.

The best rib tips in town. Stopped here along the way on the Blue's Trail. Not many options in the restaurant. But the rib tips are worth not having any other option. Do know that the place does not take cards so make sure you...More

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?
