We had dinner last night in this retro spot on Route 66. Chicken-fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy was really good; it was recommended by our server. The night before my wife had a similar dish in Van Buren AR (Jakes) and it was tasteless by comparison. BTW Van Buren is a culinary wasteland. Anyway Del's was fine although... More

Great family Route 66 restaurant. Friendly staff. Great steaks. Melts in your mouth like butter. Great salsa.

This restaurant offers a very nice variety of selections for dinner. The salad bar was fresh. They had a pot of red beans which appeared to be a mainstay and the beans were very good. My husband ordered the salmon and I had the chicken fried steak. We were both very pleased with our meal. There seemed to be several... More

Second visit here as we stopped by last year as well. Nice decor in Route 66 style retro. Extensive menu fish steak chicken & lots of Mexican also. Wife raved about blackened steak. My roast beef dinner was rather bland but ok. Good salad bar and very friendly service. There's not a lot open in town after 3pm and this... More

Best green chili type sauce I've had outside of the Santa Fe/Albq area. Nice atmosphere. We all loved our food. Waitress was great. Sopaipillas were really great!

My daughter and I spent a few days in Tucumcari and ate at Del's one night. The beef/veg soup was really, really good. Not so crazy about the steak fingers and mashed potatoes, but my daughter liked her grilled cheese. Very friendly and attentive staff, clean and I could see other people enjoying their dinners. Would definitely have gone back... More

We stopped here for lunch and had more than we could eat. And it was good! My wife and I both had the lunch special chicken fried steak which was very large and although not the best we have had was still way above average; must be the close proximity to Texas 😉. My wife had mashed potatoes she pronounced... More

This was recommended by the folks at the Blue Swallow and was pretty close by. The staff was friendly, my sirloin was delicious and the salad bar is very nice. I also had the onion rings and they were well prepared and tasty. My wife had the chicken strips + one side and they were OK. Open for lunch and... More
