Fat Mama’s Tamales Featured on the Mississippi List

August finds Fat Mama’s Tamales featured on MississippiList.com as the “Top Spot for Tamales and Margaritas in Mississippi“!

Fat Mama’s Tamales has long been a staple in the city of Natchez. Locals and visitors alike enjoy the casual, eclectic atmosphere and unique sampling of menu items.”

The article starts with what inspired Fat Mama’s back in the 1980s and goes on to share some highlights from our menu, including our world famous Fat Mama’s Tamales.

“Today, Fat Mama’s menu has evolved to one of tamales, boudin, chili, Mexican cornbread, poboys, nachos, and more. Their signature Gringo Pie combines tamales with chili, cheese, onions and jalapenos on top. Their Gringo Casserole is pretty much the same thing, only prepped for a large crowd.

Best Tamales: Fat Mama's Tamales

“But oh, those tamales. Fat Mama’s Tamales are a Mississippi Delta style hot tamale. Each tamale is wrapped in an authentic corn husk, cooked to perfection! Fat Mama’s Tamales are made with a combination of beef and pork, full full of flavor – and boiled not steamed.”

Thanks so much to MississippiList.com for stopping by and enjoying Fat Mama’s Tamales with us!

Hi Friends and Family,

The date of the last Back the Blue Poker Run has changed!

Let’s take the Poker Run to Baton Rouge!  

Krew of Fat Mama’s Annual Natchez Poker Run

It’s the Natchez Poker Run day!

The Poker Run starts at 9 and the lead vehicle leaves Fat Mama’s tamales at 10!

We have t-shirts, Bloody Mary’s, 50/50 bucket, and lunch plates. See you there!

Take a look at an excerpt from The Democrat article on the Poker Run:

“We are ready to roll for the sixth annual Krewe of Fat Mama’s Poker run. Again this year the Krewe of Fat Mama’s and Adams County Search and Rescue have teamed up to host the 2016 Natchez Poker Run. All raised monies benefit Adams County Search and Rescue (ACSAR).  ACSAR is a 100-percent volunteer group that depends on fund raisers to bring a valuable service to you, our citizens.  Bring your bike, buggy, classic vehicle, (anything street legal), to Fat Mama’s Tamales (FMT), Saturday.  Your participation will help ACSAR protect you.

Adams County Search and Rescue is a volunteer organization dedicated to the mission of search and rescue, Mississippi River safety, first aid/CPR, evidence recovery and other tasks assisting the population of Adams County.

The sixth annual schedule starts with registration from 9  a.m. until 10 a.m. at Fat Mama’s Tamales, 303 S. Canal St. The event begins at 10 a.m. All street legal vehicles will leave for Illusion’s on the Vidalia-Ferriday highway. Following this, our route takes us to the Under-the-Hill Saloon on Silver Street, then on to CR’s for lunch. Lunch will consist of a hamburger plate for $5 with a drink.  About 1:45 p.m. we leave for Natchez Power Sports in Washington to obtain a third card for your poker hand, followed by a scenic ride out U.S. 33 to the 33 Roadhouse to get a fourth card. All vehicles will arrive back at Fat Mama’s to draw their fifth card at approximately 4:15 p.m.” – The full poker run article can be viewed here.
