After eating at Fat Mama's we were leaving town and saw Big Papa's Tamales at a donut shop - I never considered stopping.

Tamales Little Rock

Thought I'd jump in and toot our own horn.
In Little Rock, Arkansas we own Izzy's Restaurant (since 1985) and have been making hot tamales for over 25 years. To my knowledge we sell more tamales than anyone in Arkansas. Hand rolled in corn shucks, available in shredded beef or Arkansas' only veegan tamales. Check out Izzy's at : izzyslittlerock.com
I've been riding motorcycles most my life to 38 states including AK and 7 provinces of Canada.
If you are ever in Little Rock stop by and try Arkansas' best tamales and if I'm around we can share a motorcycle story or two.

Any comments or comparisons on taste?

No tamales today, but we did stop off for lunch at the Blue Rooster in Flora, MS for lunch and to warm up today. They make one of the best burgers I've ever had.

Abe's BBQ

Today we ventured to Clarksdale, MS.

We did several stops around town.

Hopson Plantation/Shack-Up Inn.


The Crossroads.


Ground Zero Blues Bar (wanted to try their tamales but didn't think they would be open).


We then went to several other hot tamale places (Hicks, Larry's, Ranchero) and found them all closed.





We had passed Abe's and knew it was open so we went back there.






The tamales were fair - a little bland but still better than Fat Mama's. Not quite as good as the White Front Cafe. Well below Solly's and the Onward Store.

We had a fun 330-mile battle with the winds of the Mississippi delta today.

Found some new tamales at a place that was already one of my favorite restaurants.... Soulshine Pizza Factory

I had seen other get tamales there, so I decided to try them last night!

Obligatory Cell Phone pic:


Homemade Hot Tamales
1/2 dozen — $7.99 Dozen — $13.99



Available plain, or with the following: Chili, cheese, jalepenos, onions, and a few other toppings I can't remember.

The above pic was just jalapenos and cheese. They had good flavor and consistency, but were a bit dry. Probably should have added chili to them. Put a little hot sauce on them and they were good.
