Fat Mama's Tamales

Located along the Southern tail of the Mississippi River, the one thing you may not expect to find in this small Miss-Lou city is tamales. Yet this place is completely tamale crazy, thanks in part to a little log cabin serving up seriously hot tamales. Local residents, Jimmy and Britton Gammill, started making these tasty, spicy treats for their hometown after two years of trial and error in search for the perfect recipe. It was during that period when the Gammill’s son came up with the restaurant’s name: if mama kept messing up the tamale recipe, they’d have to start calling her Fat Mama after all eating all the mistakes. With lines soon stretching out the door, it is safe to say that mama found her recipe.

It’s time to party masa.

We're not the only ones who love them!
