You Haven’t Lived In Arkansas Long Enough If You Haven’t Been To These 6 Delta Tamale Joints
Although the delicious art form of the tamale didn’t originate in Arkansas, we do still consider it a state staple. Tamales can be found throughout the state but no where does them better than the Delta. Let’s head over to the east side and (in no particular order) find some of the most tasty tamales you’ll ever eat.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
