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.

Ok, he was out of tamales when we arrived (they were making them, though), but he had just pulled some rib tips off the grill. Y'all!!! I've had rib tips that were tough and some that were pretty decent, but Larry put the hurt on these--in a good way. Do yourself a favor and get some. The beans were good... More

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 bring cash. It is completely worth the stop.

My wife and I went to Larry's searching some great Tamales . We came into the restaurant ordered some Tamales for an appetizer to get ready for the main event ..... Rib Tips ! The Rib tips had about 20 minutes before they were ready , and we just sat around and had conversations with the owner and other patrons... 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?

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 some to take home with you. Larry worked with us to package what we wanted... More

Tamales are delicious!! So was the customer service. We ate some there and brought home a few dozen. Call ahead because they go quickly once a batch is ready. Great food! Great guys!

It has been a long time since I've had Delta tamales. Larry's did not disappoint! They were fantastic! My wife had never had them, so they let us try one before we ordered. They were delicious!!

These are the best tamales you can buy. We live about 3 hours away and stop there every time we go through and pick up extras to freeze and cook at home. Make sure you get plenty of his sauce. Thats the kicker. He is a super nice guy as well. Get these tamales!
