Tamales are more than just a local delicacy in the Rio Grande Valley. They’re also a tradition as a meal during celebrations and get-togethers! There are several places that claim to have the best, but in our area, there’s only one company that’s proven it: Delia’s! Our tamales are enjoyed by thousands of visitors and residents and are now captivating customers from all over the United States with our new shipping options!
A South Texas Favorite
We’ve been specializing in tamales for over 30 years. Starting out as a means of supporting her family, our founder, Delia, and her sister would set out with their freshly-cooked tamales in coolers, going door-to-door and business-to-business selling them. After growing a dedicated client base, Delia realized that she was quickly outgrowing her kitchen.
In 1998, Delia opened her first location in South McAllen. The demand for her tamales grew and she had no choice but to open a second location in 2003 in Pharr. A third was added in Edinburg in 2006, a fourth and fifth location in Mission and San Juan followed in 2008 and the sixth location in North McAllen was added in 2012.
