I've been reading about Solleys for years glad to have made it the tamales were good as were the pulled pork and nachos. The only thing that could improve the menu is a cold beer. A real non Descript building but the inside was clean

Went to Solly's because the Tamale Place was unexpectedly closed. We had tamale burritos, Nachos and a few tamales. Everything was amazing!

We're visiting Vicksburg and tonight when deciding where to have dinner, we came up with Solly's Hot Tamales. Unfortunately they close at 7pm on Saturdays, so we googled again and came up with The Tamale Place. BIngo! Don't be scared. It's not fancy and there's no seating - get your food and go - but this is some excellent eats.... More

Solly's is a hidden gem for great Tamales. Every time I drive through Vicksburg I stop to get a dozen. They sell pulled pork sandwiches but the Tamales are the best

I try to never return to my home town without at least a dozen Solly's tamales.The best I can get north of my father-in-laws homemade tamales on his 8400 acre ranch in Piadres Negros Mexico

If you want tamales soaked in lard with the husk discolored due to being soaked in lard go ahead and throw your money in the toilet. Expensive garbage. They must pass around the hype because no one who has tasted one would buy a second. As a matter of fact if you just don't believe me just buy one first... More

Had a good set of Tamles here ($10 for a set) and a boudin ($3), the food was fine and Grandma was a real hoot, but the Granddaughter (Missy?) was moody and never smiled once, C'mon girl, it might never happen! Eat here, its an institution!

As a displaced Texan, I haven't found the genuine taste of great tamales in years. If you love tamales, don't miss it, and don't be put off by the scruffy exterior. They don't claim to be fancy, they claim to have super tamales.
