We are here after checking in late to our motel for the night. The wait on food seemed a little excessive, the food was good and the fish was really flaky, kids food seemed a little overdone. Our waitress was lovely and very chatty with our children.

Our reward and challenge for a full day of driving cross country is to find a spot popular with the locals. We scored with Del's. Many families came in and knew the management by name. Both hubby and I enjoyed our meals. Starter of guacamole was a bit brown and not the most appetizing looking. My chicken fajitas were good--... More

Love the old hotels and restaurants along Route 66. We stopped here because of reviews. My wife had a tamale and I had the teriyaki chicken with mixed veggies. Both meals were good. Service was excellent. I would eat here again. Get your Route 66 kicks at Del's!

My wife and I ate here for the first time on Tuesday evening, 9 December. My wife had the chicken fingers dinner and I had the roast beef dinner. All was really good. The mashed potatoes and the potato soup were very good. This will be a regular stop on our trips to and from Albuquerque.

The restaurant was old as the town is old but the food and service were fast. It was a cold rainy day and a hot meal was very welcomed. Our waitress seemed to know this and offered coffee to warm us up and salsa and chips as is the New Mexico custom. Our meal was just right. Not too much... More

Our favorite restaurant when passing through Tucumcari. Nice menu, salad bar, and gift shop. Never disappointing.

Steak fajitas were short on steak and long on red and green peppers. Overall quite good with the rice and beans. Cold beer. Adequate wine list. Typical sampling of Rt66 oriented souvenirs. Server was aloof until she realized she'd better start working for a tip.

Kevin, at the near by Blue Swallow Motel recommended this family run restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. Nice decor, good food and a very attentive waitstaff.

Had 1 enchilada dinner, a little pricy for quality/taste. The sopapilla was bready and cold. (Got this dinner to go). The enchilada was small. Would not recommend. Very nice decor.
