Nice, quiet restaurant on the Mother Road

We walked across the street from our motel..( the Roadrunner Motel ) for a nice dinner with good food and service. What I would call when I was a kid......a nice restaurant. It's like you're back in the 50's or 60's. So fun!! Even spent a little money in the gift shop as they had some really cool... read more

We stopped here for dinner while driving through town. It was very good. Fun place with friendly staff. The food was exceptional for a small town diner. I had the roast beef dinner with real mashed potatoes. Each dinner entree comes with salad bar which had many good items. I had a glass of wine which was a more than... More

After we checked into our nearby Route 66 motel, Del's was recommended to have a good supper. Was not disappointed. The meal was good and the salad bar was really good. If you ordered a meal, the salad bar was included. Del's has a large seating capacity and it is fully staffed. It has a comfortable feel to it.

We drove cross country moving from CA to MO. We stopped in Tucumcari for the night just to stay at the Blue Swallow Inn. The town is very small and many businesses appeared to be vacant. It felt like we were in a deserted town so we got dinner recommendations from staff. Del’s was one of the two she recommended.... More

The service was excellent, the salad bar has a great selection of items and the Russian potato soup was really tasty. Unfortunately the main, chicken fried steak wasn't that good. The sauce that was on the steak was the same that was on the mashed potato and it was quite tasteless.

The hotel we stayed at recommended this restaurant. Get there early. They have quite a crowd. Dieting, so I selected the soup and salad bar. So very good, and so many items to choose from. Tucumcari is on our way to Arizona, so we're adding this restaurant to our list of excellent dining experiences.

Had some real cowboys in there so the locals must like it. Food was basic but what we were looking for. Very friendly staff.

After an all day drive from Phoenix, Del's was a welcome stop. Good food - chopped sirloin with bacon and hickory chicken -- the salad bar is nice (I would like to have seen some tomatoes), a reasonable wine and beer selection. We suggest Del's not chill the red wine. Brandon, our server, was outstanding - very efficient and welcoming.
