Delia’s Tamales

Delia’s sprouted 29 years ago from very humble beginnings. Needing to provide for her family, Delia started making tamales to sell with one of her sisters. They started with five pounds of masa and used all of their proceeds to continue making tamales. Each morning they would set out with their freshly cooked tamales in coolers and go door-to-door and business-to-business selling their tamales. After a period of time, Delia had built a solid client base and realized that she was out growing her kitchen. She had taken a food that was mainly enjoyed during the holidays to a food that could be enjoyed year round.

In 1998, at the urging of many of her clients, the first Delia’s was opened in South McAllen. After solidly establishing the inaugural location, she realized that a second location was desperately needed and opened her second store in Pharr in 2003. Shortly thereafter the Edinburg location was open in 2006. Continued success led to the opening of the 4th and 5th locations in Mission and San Juan in 2008.

Currently, all five locations freshly steam their tamales throughout the day for the enjoyment of their clients. Delia still takes an active role in ensuring that all the different types of tamales that they serve are up to the standards that she and her customers have come to expect.
