We just ate at Del's and we both enjoyed our meals. DH had liver and onions w/ mashed potatoes. He said the liver was tender, good onions, a good reasonable portion, mashed potatoes and gravy tasty. He enjoyed the salad bar, dressings a bit thinned out. One of the soups changed from chix noodle to green chili stew. The stew... More

I had seen the good reviews and Del's looked like a place that was right up my alley. I regretted not trying another restaurant since there wasn't anything special about this place. The food was just okay and the service was only average. I had a grilled chicken sandwich was not bad but not outstanding. I was contemplating ordering desert,... More

The salad bar had potato soup the night we were there - and it tasted like baked potato soup. We both loved it! Hubby had grilled chicken breast with a rasberry sauce and some mixed veggies. Both were delicious, and he remarked how nicely the veggies were cooked. I had vegetarian fajitas - the veggies were onions and bell peppers.... More

a salad bar at last! We had been craving something healthy since arriving in Chicago. The odd house salad isn't quite enough in a country that squeezes sugar into everything. We chose this restaurant on two premises: firstly it had decent ratings on Trip Advisor and secondly it jas actually open, unlike most of Tucumcari. The food is average, as... More

Good variety of food. Service was excellent no complaints I love the family owned restaurants. This one was recommended by friends back in Wichita that had been here and I'm glad they did.

I walked two blocks from my RV Park to eat at this restaurant. I was greeted friendly enough, but then they walked me though the entire restaurant past multiple empty table to a back corner table. The host pulled the extra menus and silverware to the opposite side of the table and then left them there. I ordered chicken strips.... More

We stopped here on a recommendation of our real estate agent. Boy, did he hit the nail on the head with this one! OUTSTANDING!! This is now the restaurant we go to every time we are in Tucumcari shopping. Haven't had a bad meal here yet and don't expect anything to change, so we'll see you there!

Based on reviews, my husband and I stopped in for a light, quick lunch on our drive from Santa Fe to Oklahoma City at about 1 PM. I think it was the first time we ever split a lunch as we weren't very hungry and would have no way to store or reheat any leftovers--we split an enormous burrito, which... More

We were passing through Tucumcari and had read good reviews. We stopped here for a late lunch, around 2:30 or 3pm. It was pretty much empty at the time, one other couple were in. The staff were miserable and unfriendly, and the food was not good. Maybe it was the time of day.

Very friendly and attentive waitress. Food was excellent. Steak was tender and well cooked. Try the chicken fried steak as it is to die for.
