Anywhere in this part of New Mexico likely is a temporary stop on your way somewhere else. Del's was a happy discovery with good food, prompt and courteous service and decent prices. The ladies who own this restaurant own two others here as well. I would try one of them as well.

The restaurant have very good service and a large selection. We enjoyed lunch and the waitress was very efficient. We were very sorry that we had not eaten there the night we stayed in Tucumcari.

Don't get me wrong, this is not gourmet, but prices are reasonable, servings are large, servers are friendly and the good was good. Not a huge choice in Tucumcari, a small town on Historic Rt 66, that sadly seems to be slowly dying. So to find a friendly place like Del's was nice!

Have eaten here many times for dinner on way through town. Nice salad bar, wine/beer, friendly wait staff, the best liver and onions ever. Meat fresh and local/ethnic foods are great, too.

Definitely an amazing restaurant! Extremely friendly staff and very knowledgeable waitress! My husband ordered the fajitas and I ordered the new york steak. We both agreed that it was the best food we have had on any vacation before!!! Only complaint would be that the prices were kind of steep in our opinions. But all in all its a great... More

The menu looked promising and well priced so we got super excited she ordering the food. The chips were super fresh and tasty so we had a good start. The main issue with the entrees was the lack of individual, identifiable taste that separates one from another. Wife's quesadillas was just ok filling lacked a punch. I ordered a plate... More

Upon checking into the Blue Swallow Motel, we expressed to the owners, Kevin & Nancy, that we were hungry and wanted some 'down-home-style' supper. Their response was a simultaneous "Del's Restaurant"! We ate at Del's and it really was a fine dinner, with a great salad bar and friendly wait staff. They kept our drink glasses full and the food...

Stopped to have dinner on our way back to Dallas. All the reviewers were spot on!! All our food was delicious and the servers were attentive. Loved the paintings on the walls. I'd for sure eat here again on my way through.
