Delta Blues Hot Tamales, which was previously located at 1318 Cobb Lane in Birmingham’s Five Points South neighborhood, has now found a new home at 3569 Pelham Parkway in Pelham! The restaurant specializes in hot tamales and hot tamale plates with a selection of fried pickles, wings, hummus, sausage, queso and more.

Delta Blues Hot Tamales’ new home

Delta Blues was forced to begin the search for a new home in early 2020 after the landlord at their previous location decided not to renew their lease. While searching for a new home for their tamale restaurant, the owners served food inside Interstellar Ginger Beer and Exploration Co. and sold their fry mix at Burnette Farms Market & Cafe. EATS Highland even allowed them to use their kitchen to make flours.

The owners posted the news about their new location on their Instagram and Facebook pages and are aiming to be open sometime in early July.

Their Instagram post reads:

We are excited to announce that we have signed a new lease and will be relocating to 3569 Pelham Pkwy, Pelham, AL!! We are hoping to be open early July. We can’t wait to see all of your amazing faces!!

The restaurant was created by Adam and Fawn Freis, a husband and wife team originally from Jackson, MS. In 2012. The couple decided to take the decades of restaurant experience under their belt and create a restaurant that made delicious food that was also safe for those facing a variety of food allergies, restrictions and choices.

The couple went back to their Mississippi roots, where Hot Tamales are a popular item in parts of the state, and came up with several delicious recipes which quickly grew into a menu featuring eighteen different topped tamale plates and a wide variety of southern favorites, all made from scratch, with several vegan and vegetarian options.
