“The best Delta tamales are over in Rosedale at Joe Pope’s White Front Café (902 Main St.; 662/759-3842; lunch for two $10). The place is nothing but a shack, with a huge penny-candy counter, a couple of bubbling pots on an old stove, and a crew of women hand-rolling tamales. It is what it is, and it could not be any more perfect.” —John Currence, City Grocery
