Friendly service, good steak

Go to Hwy 66 and eat at Dells Restaurant. We had a small steak that was tender and fish and chips. Service was excellent. They have a lovely gift shop. Customers raved about the homemade soup.

Great comfort food. I had the chicken fried steak and my husband had his favorite, liver and onions. Soup excellent. Food was hot, fresh, and tasty. Service excellent and quick. Prices very reasonable. We left satisfied!

Went with coworkers after work for dinner. Service was slow and a bit scrambled. The waiter misheard part of our order and when it was brought to his attention, he started to get angry and fight with us about it. My meal was unappealing, bland, and after a few bites I lost my appetite. I prefer McDonald's to the best... More

Located on old Route 66 you could think this is another tourist trap. It is not. These people have some pretty good food. The chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes was very good. And the cream gravy was the “real deal”. The “Mexican Delight” was what we in Texas call a chalupa and was “okay”. The sopapilla was a bit... More

When we're in Tucumcari, Dels Restaurant is our choice for dinner. Great menu with Mexican and American dishes. Portions are huge and satisfying. Service is excellent, friendly and attentive (but not hovering). We typically have one of the Mexican dishes. Some of the best we've had on our travels. Highly recommend.

This restaurant offers steaks and Mexican food. We decided on Mexican fare and were glad we did. This was the best Mexican food ever (and we eat Mexican style food often). My wife's baked chimichangas were to die for while steak Guadalajara (steak and enchilada) was equally delicious. The service was fast and friendly. We also took home a jar... More

The menus includes everything from American comfort food to Mexican. The Mexican dinners include a free desert (some kind of fried bread that you can put honey on reminds me of a donut). We both ordered Mexican dinner we ordered stuffed Sopaipillias. You can order either one or two. I should have ordered one because the size was generous. Our... More
