For those of you who were once residents of the Rio Grande Valley, what do you miss the most about the area? Other than family and friends, we’re guessing it’s going to be the food. After all, the Valley is known for its down-to-earth restaurants with home-style cooking.
Delia’s is a staple of Valley eating thanks to our large menu of unforgettable options. If you happen to live up north, say in San Antonio, and miss our delicious tamales, then we have some great news. We will be opening our first location outside of the Valley in that city!
From the Beginning
It’s been almost 30 years since our founder, Delia, sold tamales door-to-door and business-to-business as a way to supplement her income. Armed with her family recipe and only five pounds of masa, her amazing tamales quickly sold out and she used all of her proceeds to continue making more.
And so, a successful entrepreneurial career was born!
Now, all of these years later, we have six locations and hundreds of daily customers. With our soon-to-be seventh location in San Antonio, we can’t wait to see just how much larger our customer base will grow!
Building a Household Name
In 1998, after years of selling her tamales door-to-door and business-to-business, Delia opened her first restaurant in South McAllen. Word spread of her tasty tamales and, pretty soon, a second location opened in Pharr in 2003.
In 2006, her third restaurant opened in Edinburg. As business grew further, a fourth location opened in Mission with a fifth in San Juan. Finally, in 2012, Delia’s sixth location opened for a second spot in McAllen.
A Growing Demand
From the start, customers helped by spreading the word of how delicious Delia’s tamales were. Pretty soon, clients asked for Delia to open a location outside of the Rio Grande Valley. We’re so happy to confirm that this wish will finally come true! Location number seven in San Antonio will be opening its doors by Spring 2020 at the latest!

Hurry up and open a place in Houston already. The tamales in Houston are horrible and everyone I know always asks me to bring your tamales back with me when I visit the valley. I miss being able to drive to a Delia’s on Sunday morning for great tamales. Please bring one to Houston ASAP
What is charge for shipping to San Antonio or address in San antonio
Going though the ordering process online is the best way to find out how much shipping would be. It will ask you for your billing and shipping information and before processing the order your total for shipping will be provided.
When will the San Antonio location open?
Thanks for keeping up! We are just as excited about opening as all of y’all! We are shooting for Spring 2020 but have no exact date. Follow us on social media for the latest information. Happy Holidays!
We were fortunate enough to have our neighbors give us a dozen beef tamales as a Christmas present. OMG were they delicious! Can’t wait for the San Antonio branch to open.
We are just as excited. Spring 2020 can not get here fast enough!
Where is new store in SATX. Need address and opening date please.
I live in Boerne TX, but work in HTX, the RGV and Laredo/Del Rio. When I return home from RGV, I buy 5 DZ at the store on Jackson, but only 4 DZ make it home. With your new store in SATX, I can buy 6 DZ and 5 DZ can make it home to complete the family order, and they will still be very warm. …win win for me and Delia. I love Delia’s Tamales.
We are just as excited about opening the San Antonio location as well! We know we will be making a lot of people like yourself very happy. The new location is going to be at 13527 Hausman Pass, San Antonio, Texas, USA 78249 and while we have no exact date yet we plan to open by the Spring of 2020.
