  1. Are you talking about Delta tamales, the candy, or Mexican tamales? Mexican tamales tend to be found on the weekend in taquerias and Mexican grocery stores.

      Delta tamales. The big ones. Thanks.

        This is the kind..................

      2. Most Mexican restaurants have their version of tamales, but I have yet to find any Delta tamales in Charleston. Let us know if you find some, as I think they are far superior to their Mexican counterpart.

        1. Are there great tamales in Charleston at all? Any type?

          If so, please let us know!
